dc.description.abstractThe Least Privilege Separation Kernel (LPSK) configuration vector defines the initial secure state and the operational configuration of the kernel, including its security policies. Enhancements made to the LPSK functional specification necessitated substantial changes to the configuration vector data format defined previously. Moreover, the earlier format used an ad-hoc syntax, which did not adhere to any standard. This work leverages Extensible Markup Language (XML) to standardize the configuration vector format. The new configuration vector format is depicted in a XML Schema, and its limitations are discussed. A more compact binary representation is defined, with an offline tool provided to generate binary configuration vectors for the target platform. Creation of a configuration vector file is a laborious and error-prone task. A good user interface can ease the process by removing underlying complexities from users. Pertinent features of XML editors were assessed in a survey. Using these as requirements, an XML editor with a suitable graphical user interface was selected.en_US
