I don't have a problem with this idea, but I do have a problem with this not replacing the current seuser behavior. Having two ways to map linux users to selinux users is an administration nightmare. People will be confused about which one to use and you'll need to know precedence. What you describe above with the contents of each file just having a * service would be the same as the current seuser behavior. -- Chris PeBenito <email@example.com> Developer, Hardened Gentoo Linux Public Key: http://pgp.mit.edu:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0xE6AF9243 Key fingerprint = B0E6 877A 883F A57A 8E6A CB00 BC8E E42D E6AF 9243 -- This message was distributed to subscribers of the selinux mailing list.
