Integrated Enterprise Security Management
Security policies are a key component in protecting
enterprise networks. But, while there are many
diverse defensive options available, current models
and mechanisms for mechanically-enforced security
policies are limited to traditional admission-based
access control. Defensive capabilities include among
others logging, firewalls, honeypots, rollback/recovery,
and intrusion detection systems, while policy
enforcement is essentially limited to one-off access
control. Furthermore, access-control mechanisms
operate independently on each service, which can
(and often does) lead to inconsistent or incorrect
application of the intended system-wide policy. We
propose a new scheme for global security policies.
Every policy decision is made with near-global
knowledge, and re-evaluated as global knowledge
changes. Using a variety of actuators, we make the
full array of defensive capabilities available to
the global policy. Our goal is a coherent,
enterprise-wide response to any network threat.
