Abstract: Recently, distributed systems have become a fundamental type of computer system. Because of this, their security is essential. The research described in this document aimed to find their weaknesses and to find the means to improve them with regards to their security. To do that, we examined the security properties that a system considered secure must support. While looking for a system with which we could work, we studied security problems in existing distributed systems. We studied the security of Java and some tools used to secure these systems. Following our research, we developed a new Java security model, which imposed new security properties. This document begins with the results of our research in distributed systems, security tools, and Java security. Next, we go into detail about our new system to finally demonstrate the security enhancements of our system using an example.
