    Hi,

    I must mention that I like the product.

    But what I greatly miss in the design is the existence of resources.
    Resources in the sense that an host can have more than one resource where authorization can be applied. Few examples of resources: SMB and NFS share, directories, devices like CDROM, etc.

    Is this something that is going to be implemented in the design in the future?

    I guess I don't understand the question.
    Can you give an example of what you mean?

    If you mean kernel-level authorization, I don't think
    that's likely to be implemented. A user space
    facility (like FUSE, or working with FUSE) that would
    work closely with an OS is also unlikely.

    DACS provides authorization on names, which can represent anything,
    including resources.
