lio-fs: Labeled File System interface for LIO

[ library, security ] [ Propose Tags ]

A very simple file system interface for LIO. Labels are associated with files and directories in the form of extended attributes. This library exposes a simple API for on files and directories that abides by information flow control: a label on the file protects its contents, while a directory label protects the containing files' attributes (names and labels).

See LIO.FS.TCB for a description of the filestore implementation and LIO.FS.Simple for a description of the actual API.

This library is still under development, use with care.


Note: This package has metadata revisions in the cabal description newer than included in the tarball. To unpack the package including the revisions, use 'cabal get'.
