Control structures for programming languages ( Book )
3 editions published in 1970 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The dissertation attempts to demonstrate that complexity diminishes and clarity increases to a marked degree if algorithms are described in a language in which appropriate control structures are primitive or easily expressible. The thesis catalogs a number of control structures and uses them to develop an extensible language. The features of the language (primitive control operations for sequential processing, parallel processing, alternative selection, monitoring, synchronization, and relative continuity) are the source of the clarity of control descriptions: they span our conceptual notion of control, and they can be easily decomposed to form other more specialized control structures.

Rationale for Fixed-Point and Floating-Point : Computational Requirements for a Common : Programming Language ( Book )
2 editions published in 1978 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper discusses the considerations that led to the individual technical requirements for the numeric computation facilities for a common programming language for the Department of Defense (DoD). Of five kinds of arithmetic considered, one floating-point and one form of fixed-point including integers were found to be appropriate for the common language. The implications of the various requirements for the language designers, the compiler-writer, the user, and the machine designer are considered. (Author).
Initial Thoughts on the PEBBLEMAN Process ( Book )
2 editions published in 1979 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this paper is to stimulate thinking and participation in the planning and development of an effective software environment to accompany the DoD common high order programming language. It examines several views of programming environments from different perspectives, catalogues a number of issue areas, asks some as yet unanswered questions, and provides some initial analyses. The tentative conclusions encompass twelve goals that appear to be important for an effective software development and maintenance environment. (Author).

Trust and Trusted Computing Platforms ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Hardware-based trusted computing platforms are intended to overcome many of the problems of trust that are prominent in computing systems. In this paper, a result of the Software Engineering Institute's Independent Research and Development Project "Trusted Computing in Extreme Adversarial Environments: Using Trusted Hardware as a Foundation for Cyber Security," we discuss the capabilities and limitations of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM). We describe credential storage, device identity, chains of trust, and other techniques for extending hardware-based trust to higher levels of software-based infrastructure. We then examine the character of trust and identify strategies for increasing trust. We show why acceptance of TPM-based trust has been limited to date and suggest that broader acceptance will require more focus on traditional trust issues and on end-to-end services.
Languages Beyond Ada and Lisp ( Book )
1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report summarizes the goals, concepts, research development, and conclusions of the Languages Beyond Ada and Lisp effort. The effort was born from the frustrations with progress in software engineering and with language design in particular. The goal of the effort, informally called Prism, was to devise ways to extend programming languages to encompass more of the total environment, and to remove the myriad barriers to cooperation among the pieces of software environments. The Prism effort has generated a wide variety of new ideas and approaches to solving traditional problems along the whole spectrum of formal systems. The new methods and approaches taken together have come to be called informalism. Informalism involves automated reasoning systems that are capable of dealing with even exploiting incompleteness and inconsistency. Informalism offers a potential for interdisciplinary computational interoperability previously unattainable.
