mac: Static Mandatory Access Control in Haskell

[ bsd3, library, security ] [ Propose Tags ]

The MAC library implements Mandatory Access Control concepts in Haskell. It leverages Haskell type-system to restrict how data gets propagated within programs and ensures that sensitive data cannot be leaked by malicious or buggy code. The library enables untrusted code, i.e., code written by someone else, to securely manipulate sensitive data while preserving its confidentiality.

The library provides secure versions of advance programming languages features like references, exceptions, and concurrency. This package is the accompanying code for the paper Functional Pearl: Two can keep a secret, if one of them uses Haskell.


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
