Rule Set Based Access Control 1.4.2

A Free Software security extension for current Linux kernels
Rule Set Based Access Control (RSBAC) is a Free Software security extension for current Linux kernels. Rule Set Based Access Control is based on the Generalized Framework for Access Control (GFAC) by Abrams and LaPadula and provides a flexible system of access control based on several modules.

All security relevant system calls are extended by security enforcement code. This code calls the central decision component, which in turn calls all active decision modules and generates a combined decision. This decision is then enforced by the system call extensions.

Main features:

  • Free Open Source (GPL) Linux kernel security solution
  • Independent of governments and big companies
  • Several well-known and new security models, like MAC, ACL and RC
  • On-access virus scanning with the Dazuko interface
  • Detailed control over individual user and program network accesses
  • Fully access controlled kernel level user management
  • Any combination of security models possible
  • Easily extensible: write your own model for runtime registration
  • Support for latest kernels and stable for production use
