  • Patent number: 5305456
    Abstract: Computer system security apparatus and method extends control of operating system security into an application. An application control component intercepts and interprets the security processing of application security software of an application. An interface member formats calls to the operating system security using parameters defined by the application control component. The interface member passes results of the operating system security calls back to the application control component for enforcement thereof. For applications running on different platforms/computers, the apparatus and method extends control of the operating system of a mainframe into those applications running on devices networked to the mainframe. The mainframe thus functions as a security server which distributes security functionality to numerous applications running on diverse platforms.
