  • Several well-known and new security models, e.g. MAC, ACL and RC
  • Control over individual user and program network accesses
  • Fully access controlled kernel level user management
  • Any combination of models possible
  • Easily extendable: write your own model for runtime registration
  • On-access virus scanning with Dazuko interface
  • Support for current kernels in 2.4 and 2.6 series
