Title

Enhancing Network Security through Dynamic Overrides

Abstract

Security libraries that provide network encryption are notoriously complex, and lack support for administrator control. Recently we have developed a system that facilitates easy deployment of encryption for new network applications and enables administrators to control security policy. However, existing secure applications remain outside administrator domain. In this presentation, we outline our methodology to dynamically replace existing security library use to force applications to utilize our new system. Through these means we enable administrators to dictate the security parameters of all applications on their machines, rather than merely those built explicitly to use our system. We validate our approach by demonstrating our methodology on a sample of popular existing secure applications.
