SEPostgreSQL may also be interesting to some. Basically it takes SELinux labels and applies them to all objects in the database (rows, columns, tuples, tables, etc) and then lets you use SELinux policy to determine which SELinux domains have access to what data.

It is particularly interesting for multilevel environments (eg., secret, top secret) so you can run a single Postgres server and let secret people only see secret data.
