The Research Highlights section of Communications of the ACM from March 2012 features two articles on Capsicum, collaborative research by the Cambridge security group and Google on capability-oriented security for contemporary operating systems. The first, Technical Perspective: The Benefits of Capability-Based Protection by Steven Gribble, considers the value of capability systems (such as Capsicum) in addressing current security problems. The second, A taste of Capsicum: practical capabilities for UNIX, is an abridged and updated version of our USENIX Security paper from 2010. These articles have since been picked up by Slashdot, Reddit, and others, and are linked to from the Capsicum publications, talks, and documentation page.
