In modern operating system kernels level security is not present and a well-known approach to protecting systems from malicious activity is through the deployment of Mandatory Access Control (MAC). Existing MAC solutions belongs to authorization mechanism however authorization mechanism along is not sufficient for achieving system assurance. Today's modern computing era operating system Kernel should have process level authentication mechanism, where process of user level application proves its identity to kernel. Current process authentication is done using information such as process names or an executable path that is conventionally used by OS to identify a process is not reliable.
