The main contribution of this paper is to investigate issues in using Mandatory Access Controls (MACs), namely those provided by SELinux, to secure application-level data. Particular emphasis is placed on health-care records located on the grid. The paper disccuses the importance of a trusted computing base in providing application security. It de- scribes a secure three-tiered architecture, incorporating trusted hardware, SELinux, and application security mechanisms that are appropriate for securing sensitive application data.
