Secure Remote Auditing Abstract
The popularity of the world wide web and Java has made
ubiquitous a new methodology for distributing code --- executable
content that is downloaded by a host and locally executed in an
interpreter. This model raises a number of security issues,
most of which concern the interaction between interpreters and agents.
Our work focuses on protecting "agents" from Byzantine hosts.
While it is impossible to prevent tampering by hosts, mechanisms
which check whether an agent was executed in accordance with its
intended semantics are needed. Our research focuses on
providing an infrastructure for achieving this goal.
