This thesis presents the design and implementation for several system services, including network access and database storage, on a new operating system design, Asbestos. Using the security mechanism provided by Asbestos, Asbestos labels, these services are used to support the construction of secure Web applications. The network and database services serve as the foundation for a Web server that supports mandatory security policies, such that even a compromised Web application cannot improperly disclose private data. The methods used in this thesis allow Web application developers to be freed from worries about flawed applications, if developers are willing to place trust in the underlying services used.
