The main contribution of this paper is to investigate issues in using Mandatory Access Controls (MACs), namely those provided by SELinux, to secure application-level data. Particular emphasis is placed on health-care records located on the grid. The paper disccuses the importance of a trusted computing base in providing application security. It de- scribes a secure three-tiered architecture, incorporating trusted hardware, SELinux, and application security mechanisms that are appropriate for securing sensitive application data.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
