Interesting post about an interesting paper (17 page PDF) on something called TrustBase, a proposal to repair the existing flawed mechanism for internet security. "TrustBase aims to fix these problems by moving authentication from an application responsibility to an operating system responsibility, where an administrator can define policies." I think it's an interesting idea, and there are prototype implementations for various languages.
