Setting Up Virtual Security Zones in a Linux Cluster
We have shown a practical solution for sharing a cluster securely among different applications belonging to different users. The DSI Project allows users to create disjoint security zones for each application in the cluster easily. Once DSI is installed on the cluster, the effort needed to create a new security zone for new applications scales down to setting appropriate ScIDs to binaries and including corresponding rules in the DSP file. Source code modification is not required and probably would be impossible anyway.
