Is SE Linux only for Linux?

    Another example of SE Linux access controls on a non-Linux platform is the MAC framework in the TrustedBSD project. This implements SE Linux access controls on top of FreeBSD. From reading the documentation it seems that the amount of changes required to the SE Linux code base for implementation on TrustedBSD was significantly smaller than the changes required for Darwin. I was surprised to see that other Unix based operating systems are porting SELinux for example, the OpenBSD project. Since SELinux is implementing in both kernel space and user space I would think there would be a lot of core changes to SELinux to make it work on other operating systems.
