This Internet-Draft outlines high-level requirements for the integration of flexible Mandatory Access Control (MAC) functionality into NFSv4.1 . It describes the level of protections that should be provided over protocol components and the basic structure of the proposed system. It also gives a brief explanation of what kinds of protections MAC systems offer and why existing NFSv4 protection mechanisms are not sufficient.
