Contribution to Conference
The Framework of Selective Interleaving Functions and the Modular Assembly Kit for Security Properties both provide a basis for the uniform representation and formal analysis of noninterference-like properties. In this article, we clarify the relationship between these two frameworks. Our main result is that each property that can be represented in the Framework of Selective Interleaving Functions can also be represented in the assembly kit. In fact, the latter frame-work is strictly more expressive, which we demonstrate by several example properties.
