An overview is given of a theory of modules and interfaces applicable to the specification and verification of systems with a layered architecture. At the heart of this theory is a module composition theorem. The theory is applied to the specification of a distributed system consisting of subjects and objects in different hosts (computers). Formal specifications of a user interface and a network interface are given. Access to objects, both local and remote, offered by the distributed system is proved to be multilevel secure
