I haven't found a copy, but the full citation, gleaned from Google
Scholar might be:

D. L. Chaum and R. S. Fabry. Implementing capability-based protection
using encryption. Technical Report UCB/ERL M78/46, University of
Califomia at Berkeley, July 1978.

It might take a trip to a hard copy library to get a copy. UC Berkeley
Libraries claim to have a copy. They list it as a book in their online

Cheers - Bill
