SecureShare: Safe UNIX/Windows File Sharing through Multiprotocol Locking
Andrea J. Borr
UNIX/Windows environments become more common, safe file sharing among
the NFS and CIFS clients becomes a significant problem. In this paper,
we describe SecureShare, a multiprotocol file sharing technology that
resolves the mismatch between NFS/NLM and CIFS file locking protocols,
provides coherent caching and enables multiprotocol change notification.
SecureShare achieves the goal through a uniform lock-mode model and
multiprotocol oplock management. This paper presents the main features
of SecureShare and discusses the rationale behind its design.
