    If you're curious about how SELinux work with a database, and want to take your understanding to the next level, this is a great way to get started: Security-Enhanced PostgreSQL (SE-PostgreSQL) is a security extension built in PostgreSQL. It works as a reference monitor within relational database management system, and provides fine-grained mandatory access control features collaborating with SELinux and its security policy.

    These features enable to deploy a database management system into data flow control scheme, integrated with operating system. We call the most characteristic feature of SE-PostgreSQL as ''system-wide consistency in access controls''. Any other RDBMS cannot provide this feature in current.
