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."

Those performance numbers came from a developer who made a patch that reduces it down to 1% and 11% (x86 and SH respectively) (http://marc.info/?l=selinux&m=118906566911337&w=2). The patch and those numbers were in the very same email so the poster knew of the effort to address it. Linux 2.6.24 has those patches so the performance issue is now addressed. This specific issue was only on file read/write revalidation.
