Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris "OpenSolaris has launched a new project, Flexible Mandatory Access Control, to integrate the Flask/TE security scheme into their OS. This is the same underlying model implemented by SELinux, and follows other cross-platform Flask/TE integration projects such as SEDarwin and SEBSD. This is very exciting in terms of establishing compatible security across operating systems, particularly for Mandatory Access Control, which has traditionally been narrowly focused and generally incompatible. With FMAC, we're closer to seeing truly ubiquitous, cross-platform MAC security."

Member since:

It is a port of SELinux. Specifically a port of the pre-GPL version.

Trusted Solaris has been abandoned for various reasons (it was always way behind Solaris, hard to maintain, etc) and not all Sun customers were happy with trusted extensions.
