Abstract

Mandatory Access Control (MAC) systems (as defined in [RFC4949]) have been mainstreamed in modern operating systems such as Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris. MAC systems bind security attributes to subjects (processes) and objects within a system. These attributes are used with other information in the system to make access control decisions.

Abstract

   This memo outlines high-level requirements for the integration of    flexible Mandatory Access Control (MAC) functionality into the    Network File System (NFS) version 4.2 (NFSv4.2).  It describes the    level of protections that should be provided over protocol components    and the basic structure of the proposed system.  The intent here is    not to present the protocol changes but to describe the environment    in which they reside.
