A Windows Alternative to Linux Security Modules? 54

Posted by Cliff
from the finely-grained-security dept.
Cliffe asks: "I am a PhD candidate preparing to implement a new security (access control) model. I have been reading about Linux's LSM (which allow security frameworks to be loaded) but I was unable to find documentation for a mechanism in MS Windows which allows every individual application's access to resources to be mediated; for example, to restrict each application's access to particular files or network protocols. Is this type of mediation possible in Windows? Virus scanners and firewalls likely utilize similar capabilities. Where can the documentation be found?"

The milestone was reached with the creation of an article about Jordanhill railway station in Scotland. Congratulations to all the Wikipedians, especially Nach0king who wrote the millionth article and Mészáros András who in November 2004 correctly predicted that it would be created today."
