Abstract A protection model is presented for a general purpose computing system based on tags attached as seals and signatures to values exchanged among processes. A tag attached to a value as a seal does not prevent that value from being propagated to any place within the system; rather, it guarantees that the value and any information derived from it cannot leave the system unless a matching tag is presented. A tag attached to a value as a signature is used by a process to verify the origin of the received data. Solutions to problems from the areas of interprocess communication and proprietary services are given.
