[20060419] Kernel authorization (kauth) progress
Elad Efrat has continued his work on bringing kauth to the NetBSD kernel. Currently the code is on a branch and needs testing before the pending merge into NetBSD-current. When kauth is in the kernel, it will be used as a base to replace the existing implementation of secure levels, and can also be used to implement facilities like capabilities and ACLs later on.

See Elad's mail to tech-security@ for a lot more details!
