RSBAC is a completely separate project ;)

I stand corrected. I thought it was part of your work with GRSecurity. Its good to see that its separated out so that if someone wanted to use it they could. However If I was going to roll my own kernel with RSBAC in it I'd just use the GRSecurity patches and get all the extra goodies that go along with it.

I think you may be confused still ;) Grsecurity has its own RBAC system (I haven't given it a fancy name) which is included in the grsecurity patch. RSBAC is a totally different project, different authors, etc. It's not related to grsecurity in any way.

You're right I was confused. I was looking through the PaX slides you referenced above and it had GRSecurity and RSBAC right next to each other so I associated them together. So yes the correct comparison would be SELinux against your RBAC mechanism.
