What MULTICS feature has influenced both operating system design and process architecture? Which security model has become the standard for defining discretionary access control? What is the most pervasive attributed based access control system available today? Which open source application's security model distinguishes normal discretionary access control from the ability to view an item? All of these questions will be answered and more in a history of computer security examining different features of security models from MULTICS to Mac OS X.
