    If you are considering MAC (Mandatory Access Control) features, have a
    look also at RSBAC (, it is a quite complete
    modular MAC system [_personally_ I find it much better than Selinux,
    with many more features and depending on your skills on setting it up,
    it can give you a much higher security]. You can find also Fedora Core
    rpms at

    FC-4 rpms should be out in a couple of weeks, in the meantime you can
    use FC-3 rpms which have been reported to work fine also on FC-4.

    Please notice that there is little support on these rpms, they are just
    given as a help to test and start you off with RSBAC. If you plan to use
    RSBAC in production environment, use the official distribution (and
    patch and compile the kernel etc.etc.). Best,


    PS. Workstation rpms for FC4 are under development, they do not offer
    MAC features, but they give antivirus scanning on access
    (clamd-clamuko/dazuko), anti buffer overflow (PaX) and resource
    exhaustion control.
