This Internet-Draft describes additions to NFSv4 to support Mandatory Access Control systems. The current draft describes the mechanism for transporting a MAC security label using the NFSv4 protocol and the semantics required for that label. In addition to this it describes an example system of using this label in a fully MAC aware environment.
