effect on access control in the system. Unlike mac_stub(4), none of the
MAC entry points are defined.
No labels are defined for mac_none.

The mac_none policy module first appeared in FreeBSD 5.0 and was devel‐
oped by the TrustedBSD Project.
This software was contributed to the FreeBSD Project by Network Asso‐
ciates Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates Inc.
under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (“CBOSS”), as part of the
DARPA CHATS research program.
See mac(9) concerning appropriateness for production use. The TrustedBSD
MAC Framework is considered experimental in FreeBSD.
While the MAC Framework design is intended to support the containment of
the root user, not all attack channels are currently protected by entry
point checks. As such, MAC Framework policies should not be relied on,
in isolation, to protect against a malicious privileged user.
