A simple and general definition of denial-of-service in operating systems is presented. It is argued that no current protection mechanism nor model resolves this problem in any demonstrable way. The notion of interuser dependency is introduced and identified as the common cause for all problem instances. Decomposition of operating systems into hierarchies of services is assumed for the discovery of denial-of-service instances.
