Resumen: In the past years, researchers have been focusingon applying information flow security to web applications.These mechanisms should raise a minimum of false alarmsin order to be applicable to millions of existing web pages. Apromising technique to achieve this is secure multi-execution(SME). If a program is already secure, its secure multi-execution produces the same output events; otherwise, this correspondence is intentionally broken in order to preservesecurity. Thus, there is no way to know if unexpected resultsare due to bugs or due to semantics changes produced by SME.Moreover, SME provides no guarantees on the relative orderingof output events from different security levels. We argue that these shortcomings limit the applicability of SME.In this article, we propose a scheduler for secure multi- execution which makes it possible to preserve the order of output events. Using this scheduler, we introduce a novel combination between monitoring and SME, called multi-execution monitor, which raises alarms only for actions breaking the non-interference notion of ID-security for reactive systems. Additionally, we show that the monitor guarantees transparency even for CP-similarity, a progress-sensitive notion of observation.
