SELinux Future Work
The National Security Agency's Security-enhanced Linux team created and uses SELinux for research purposes. This list of future work changes as our research progresses and we explore new areas. The focus of our work is not to create a marketable product, and usability and integration tasks often receive little or no priority.
It is expected that research in the below-identified areas of technology will continue. However, this list of expected research shall not be considered as a request for proposal or otherwise construed as a commitment by NSA to anyone for the procurement of equipment, services, or any obligation. The NSA reserves the right to not pursue research in any area identified below or to discontinue, at any time, research in progress in any of these areas.
This is a short list (in no particular order) of some of the many tasks remaining to be done. External participation is welcomed in these tasks as well as those which are less likely to receive SELinux team attention.
