"For some time, both integrity and confidentiality have been regarded as inherent parts of information security. However, in the past, more emphasis has been placed on the standardization of confidentiality properties of computer systems. This paper shows that there is a significant amount of information available about integrity and integrity mechanisms, and that such information can be beneficial in starting to formulate standardizing criteria. We have gone beyond the definition of integrity and provided material that will be useful to system designers, criteria developers, and those individuals trying to gain a better understanding of the concepts of data and systems integrity. This paper provides foundational material to continue the efforts toward developing criteria for building products that preserve and promote integrity."
