,----[ Quote ]
| When your editor was in Tokyo recently, he
| had the privilege to talk with KaiGai Kohei
| at some length about the SE-PgSQL patch set.
| This work, developed by KaiGai for the last
| two years or so, integrates SELinux with the
| PostgreSQL database manager, enabling fine-
| grained control over access to data stored
| within a database. The SE-PgSQL patch has
| struggled to get into the PostgreSQL
| mainline; it is now preparing for what may
| well be its last push to be merged. Whether
| it's successful may, in the end, depend on
| whether it receives support from potential
| users.
