Title: Costs of Security in the PFS File System
Authors: Walsh, Kevin
Schneider, Fred
Keywords: Security principles
File systems
Issue Date: 25-Jul-2012
Abstract: Various principles have been proposed for the design of trustworthy systems. But there is little data about their impact on system performance. A filesystem that pervasively instantiates a number of well-known security principles was implemented and the performance impact of various design choices was analyzed. The overall performance of this filesystem was also compared to a Linux filesystem that largely ignores the security principles.
