SELinux and an infinate level of fine grained control? I guess it really depends on how much control you need and how many man hours you want to put into maintaining it.

I'd imagine the US DOD has permission levels and tables that would make your head spin, after all their paper permission levels are nearly incomprehensible, I can't even imagine their computer permissions. In fact I'd wager there is an entire staff of people that do nothing but manage permissions.

I took the course, and they have the same four or five levels for everyone (unclassified, restricted ,confidential, secret and top secret), and a plethora of categories, possibly including "the commandant's cat's litter-box", assuming of course that you have secrets about it.
