Brian J. d'Auriol, "Architecture Information Assurance", Proceedings of The First Workshop on Embedded Systems Security, the 6th Annual ACM Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT'06), October 22-25, 2006, Seoul, South Korea, published on conference CD.

A preliminary model is introduced in this paper whereby data and its associated security properties are treated as a single atomic unit of information in a hardware-only con- text. Security-tagged data allows each datum to be properly manipulated with a predictable assurance. This paper ad- dresses some of the issues and overhead due to the data size increase of tagged data. This work is a part of a larger issue that instruction set architectures (ISAs) do not consider the information assurance implications in its operational envi- ronment.
