SC-3(1): Hardware Separation
(Not part of any baseline)
- NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5:
- SC-3(1): Hardware Separation
The information system utilizes underlying hardware separation mechanisms to implement security function isolation.
Underlying hardware separation mechanisms include, for example, hardware ring architectures, commonly implemented within microprocessors, and hardware-enforced address segmentation used to support logically distinct storage objects with separate attributes (i.e., readable, writeable).
