Even as modern computing systems allow the manipu-
lation and distribution of massive amounts of information,
users of these systems are unable to manage the confiden-
tiality of their data in a practical fashion. Conventional
access control security mechanisms cannot prevent the il-
legitimate use of privileged data once access is granted.
For example, information provided by a user during an
online purchase may be covertly delivered to malicious
third parties by an untrustworthy web browser. Existing
information-flow security mechanisms do provide this as-

forced during program development as a static analysis on
