It is widely agreed among computer science experts
that spyware poses a dangerous threat to computer
users´´ privacy. It is also widely agreed among these
experts that mandatory access control (MAC) is a
valuable security model that provides valuable
security, namely in the fields of data
confidentiality and data integrity (data
authorization). Finally, it is a fact that the
Microsoft Windows operating system (OS) from
Microsoft Corporation is the world´´s most used OS.
But how can this valuable security model (MAC) be
used to address data confidentiality problems in the
world´´s most used OS (Microsoft Windows)? The author
Filipe Governa performs a market review, showing an
overview of past work by briefly analyzing existing
MAC implementations, with a deeper analysis of and
strong focus on the most relevant one for this work -
Microsoft Windows Integrity Mechanism (WIM) in
Microsoft Windows Vista -, and answers this question
by developing and describing a concept for fighting
tracking software types of spyware with MAC in
Microsoft Windows Vista using WIM. The book is
addressed to IT professionals in general and
security experts/researchers in particular.
