FreeBSD

There has been a lot of maturing technologies in FreeBSD 10, with many new features which make this release, I think, the most exciting one in years. A lot of development has gone into virtualisation support. Virtualisation with FreeBSD Jails has been available for a long time, but not so much "full virtualisation".

Let's have a look at the some of the most talked about, most requested and most interesting features that have found their way into or are planned for 10.0, but may not make the deadline.

Unfortunately nothing like apparmor in FreeBSD yet.

FreeBSD absolutely has SELinux/AppArmor features.

Those are primarily Mandatory Access Control and Capability-based security frameworks, which FreeBSD has had starting with the 5.x series nearly a decade ago.

It also has Sun's Basic Security Module API, in the form of OpenBSM (which started at Apple for MacOS X), which provides a capable security audit system.

Search for "capsicum" and "mandatory access control" along with "freebsd" and you'll get tonnes of information on the FreeBSD way of doing AppArmor/SELinux stuff.
