Note on Mapping User-Oriented Security Policies to Complex Mechanisms and Services [open pdf - 628KB]
"The quality of service framework in a heterogeneous computer network environment may provide users and applications with a wide range of security mechanisms and services. We propose a simplified user security interface and a method for mapping this interface to complex underlying security mechanisms and services. Additionally, we illustrate a mechanism for mapping multiple security policies to the same user security interface."
