Dazuko 3.0.0 / 3.0.1 RC2

Dazuko provides a device driver allowing 3rd-party (userland) applications to execute file access control.
Dazuko provides a device driver allowing 3rd-party (userland) applications to execute file access control. Dazuko project was originally developed by H+BEDV Datentechnik GmbH to allow on-access virus scanning.

Other uses include a file-access monitor/logger or external security implementations. It operates by intercepting file access calls and passing the file information to a 3rd-party application.

The 3rd-party application then has the opportunity to tell the device driver to allow or deny the file access. The 3rd-party application also receives information about the access event, such as accessed file, type of access, process id, and user id.

Dazuko has been released as Free Software in order to allow users to compile the device driver for their own custom kernels. It also gives the project an opportunity to establish a common interface for 3rd-party file access control.

Free Software provides the added benefit of increased robustness and security, having many eyes investigate the source code.

Although H+BEDV Datentechnik GmbH will continue to support the project and provide commercial software that utilizes the Dazuko driver via its interface, this project is Free Software and is in no way owned by H+BEDV Datentechnik GmbH.

This project provides a fully functional device driver with a well-defined interface, allowing any organization to develop software to utilize Dazuko.

The current status of the project is usable for Linux 2.2-2.6, Linux/RSBAC, and FreeBSD 4/5. However we would like to see the project expand to support other operating systems such as MacOS X, Solaris, OpenBSD, and Windows, as well as expand in functional capabilities.
