Labeled NFS Community Involvement

[edit] Abstract

Discuss the current status of the Labeled NFS work and ways to increase community involvement. For the last year the prototype of Labeled NFS has been stable and usable in certain environments. To expand the capabilities of Labeled NFS additional development and design work is needed in the areas of RPC security, interoperability, and standards. I would like to present several areas where members of the SELinux and greater security communities can increase their involvement and help progress Labeled NFS standardization and merger into the mainline Linux kernel.
