Self-Securing Storage: Protecting Data in
Self-securing storage prevents intruders from undetectably tampering
with or permanently deleting stored data. To accomplish this,
self-securing storage devices internally audit all requests and keep
old versions of data for a window of time, regardless of the
commands received from potentially compromised host operating systems.
In this talk, I will present a detailed description of self-securing
storage and describe our implementation of a self-securing storage
device, called S4.
John Strunk is a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering
at Carnegie Mellon University. John received his M.S. from CMU in May
of 2000, and a B.Cmp.E. from Georgia Tech in 1998. His current
research focuses on computer security and intrusion tolerant computer
systems. John is a student of Greg Ganger and is currently working on
the Self-Securing Storage project.
