The profile naming service
Larry L. Peterson
Pages: 341-364
DOI: 10.1145/48012.48013
Profile is a descriptive naming service used to identify users and organizations. This paper presents a structural overview of Profile's three major components: a confederation of attribute-based name servers, a...

Experiments in SR with different upcall program structures
M. Stella Atkins
Pages: 365-392
DOI: 10.1145/48012.48041
This paper explores program designs for layered systems such as communication protocols and server/client systems that do not exhibit a strict hierarchy in their control flow. Clark has proposed structuring such systems, where both upward and...

Cache performance of operating system and multiprogramming workloads
Anant Agarwal, John Hennessy, Mark Horowitz
Pages: 393-431
DOI: 10.1145/48012.48037
Large caches are necessary in current high-performance computer systems to provide the required high memory bandwidth. Because a small decrease in cache performance can result in significant system performance degradation, accurately...

A digital multisignature scheme using bijective public-key cryptosystems
Tatsuaki Okamoto
Pages: 432-441
DOI: 10.1145/48012.48246
A new digital multisignature scheme using bijective public-key cryptosystems that overcomes the problems of previous signature schemes used for multisignatures is proposed. The principal features of this scheme are (1) the length of a...
