I have mentioned that because linux permissions are less than suitable for enterprises; thats why Redhat incorporated SELinux to its OS; namely to have ACLs.

SELinux is far more than Access Control Lists.

Every Linux has Access Control Lists.Only SELinux has mandatory ones which means a role or policy is mandatory,even root is effected by them.So if you don't make a proper policy you can easily make your system unusable.

Grsecurity is also much and much more than having suddenly *real* ACL's.
