Prompt for "Preventing Privilege Escalation"

Due on Wednesday, December 1 by 11:59pm

Write a technical paper review, and in your discussion, please address the following questions.

  • Privilege separating an existing codebase clearly requires a lot of work from a programmer. Do you think the cost is worth the effort? Why or why not? If you were writing a new program, would you privilege-separate it?

Turn-in instructions: commit your response to your reading responses Github repository. Please use the LaTeX template supplied in your repository. Be sure to turn in both your source .tex file and a compiled .pdf file.

You can generate a PDF from the template with the command:
$ pdflatex reading09.tex
Please be sure to name your generated PDF reading09.pdf. You will need to install TeXLive on your personal computer to build LaTeX documents: macOS, Windows, Linux. CS Lab machines already have TeXLive installed.
