  • Audit (Audit - AU) - the functionality of the complex protection system, designed to register security events in the system and enable OS users with administrative rights to control the processes and actions of users, monitor how the complex is used, and also configure it correctly;
  • System monitoring (System Monitoring - SM) - the functionality of the complex protection system, designed to obtain information about the progress of the boot process, the current state of security and health of OS components, application processes running within the OS user environment and analysis of audit results;
  • Identification and authentication of users (Identification and authentication - I&A) - the functionality of the complex protection system based on the calculation and use by access subjects (users) of unique access attributes (username, password, session identifier, electronic certificate, access identifier, etc.) for the implementation their authorization procedures during access to OS objects);
  • Authorization of users in the system (Authorization - AU) - the functionality of the complex protection system, which ensures the implementation of the policy of restricting access to objects (selected directories and files contained in them), based on certain attributes of users and objects in the system, and provides functionality for OS administrators to manage this access, allows you to organize joint work of several users with different job duties and rights to access protected information.
  • User and role management (URM) the functionality of the complex protection system that defines a role model for managing users and access to OS objects.
  • Process management in the OS (Process Management - PM) - the functionality of the complex protection system, which is designed to
    • managing process access to OS objects and their initiation policy;
    • managing the flow of information and blocking the flow of information, which may lead to a decrease in its level of confidentiality;
    • delimitation of application access to selected directories and files contained in them, which makes it possible to protect information from accidental deletion or damage, as well as to ensure compliance with its processing technology.
  • Establishment of restrictions (Quota - QU) - OE functionality designed to manage restrictions on the use of computing resources of the OS deployment hardware platform and system resources of the OS kernel, as part of the execution of user applications.
  • System availability (High availability - HA) - the functionality of an integrated protection system designed to ensure an appropriate level of stability of processes and OS modules before failures and execution errors, as well as support mechanisms for restoring the functionality of the OS and protected objects.
  • Process isolation and protection against unauthorized reuse of objects (Process isolation - PI) - the functionality of an integrated protection system that provides protection for user processes from unauthorized initiation and excess of authority, control of the integrity of processes during their execution and separation of the virtual memory space used by processes.
  • Data storage security in the OS (Data Storage Security - DSS) - the functionality of a comprehensive protection system that provides:
    • protection of OS objects that are stored in the file system;
    • control over the import of information from removable media;
    • control over the export of information to removable media with the possibility of registering removable media and limiting (for certain users) the list of removable media used only by registered ones;
    • guaranteed destruction of information with restricted access when deleting the corresponding files;
    • monitoring the integrity of the application software (SW) and the software of the complex, as well as blocking the download of programs whose integrity has been violated, which allows for protection against viruses and compliance with the technology for processing protected information;

  • SELinux/AppArmor - Implementation of Mandatory User and Process Access Control (MAC), Multi-Layer Security (MLS), and Multi-Category Security (MCS) mechanisms in the Linux kernel.
    • The purpose of the access policy implemented by SELinux is to provide the ability to control privileges based on the roles that a user can hold, and then to limit the scope of influence that a role can have by defining allowed combinations of roles and domains.
    • AppArmor is a predictive protection software tool based on security policies that determine which system resources and with what privileges can be accessed by an application running on systems. AppArmor allows the system administrator to restrict the capabilities of programs using program profiles. Profiles can allow features such as network access, raw socket access, and permission to read, write, or execute files on the appropriate paths. AppArmor complements the traditional Unix selective access control (DAC) system by providing mandatory access control (MAC).
