A security policy is intended to regulate the behaviour of a socio-technical system (computers, networks and humans) in such a way as to ensure that certain properties are maintained or goals achieved. Two problems arise here: regulating the behaviour of humans is non-trivial and, secondly, many security goals are not "enforceable" in the Schneider sense, . Thus, security policy mechanisms inevitably involve approximations and trade-offs. We discuss the theoretical and practical limitations on what is technically enforceable and argue for the need for models that encompass social as well as technical enforcement mechanisms. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
