A Windows Alternative to Linux Security Modules? 54

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.
