DARPA/NSA/DISA Joint Technology Office: Research Challenges in Operating System Security

Security is still an area of operating systems that is in need of further research. Many "secure" systems and algorithms already exist, but there are still many challenges. This paper gives an overview of the most important areas which have to be addressed. It is split in the following five sections: Technology-Security Interplays, Security Policy, Assurance, Network-OS Interaction, and Risk Reduction.
