The features of SE-PostgreSQL
Security-Enhanced PostgreSQL (SE-PostgreSQL) is a security extension built
in PostgreSQL. It enables to apply a unified security policy of SELinux to
both operating system and database management system.
In addition, it also provides fine-grained access control including column
and row level, and mandatory access control being non-bypassable, even if
privileged database users.
These features enables to build a database management system into information
flow control scheme integrated with operating system, and to protect our
information asset from threats like manipulation or leaking.

The position of this version
This is the first official version of SE-PostgreSQL based on PostgreSQL 8.2.4.
However, it does not have enough achievement of works compared to the original
PostgreSQL. Therefore, we recommend you to have enough evaluation and
verification on its introduction.
The series of SE-PostgreSQL 8.2.4-1.x got into maintenance phase after the
release of this version, and we don't have any plan to release new version
in this series, except for bug fixes.
The SE-PostgreSQL development team has a plan to develop next major version
of SE-PostgreSQL based on PostgreSQL 8.3, with several new features.

The development of SE-PostgreSQL is supported by Exploratory Software Project,
IPA(Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan).
