内容摘要:
Software systems contain paths for information transmission that were not intended by their designers. These paths utilize the systems" resources, environment, or established legitimate communication channels. They are called distributed covert channels and can be used as paths to leak out confidential information to unauthorized recipients. To the unwary user, these channels may transport information as if by magic, despite the vigilance of monitors. Because of this, covert channels pose a significant threat to information security. In a system of communicating agents, if there exists a covert channel, then two conditions are satisfied: Constraint on Communication and Potential for Communication.
