Abstract : The paper reviews the logical access control mechanisms implemented in two computer systems. The first computer system, known as the PSF, is an on-line, multi-access operating system with an advanced data base management capability on an IBM 7040/PDP/ 8/DEC 338 coupled computer configuration. The second computer system, known as the EDMF, is a time-sharing operating system with extended data base management capability on a RCA SPECTRA 70/46 virtual memory computer.
