For those relying upon Security Enhanced Linux SELinux within an enterprise environment or just very security minded, ZFS On Linux now has full support for SELinux.

Four new data-set properties were added to the ZFSOnLinux project for supporting SELinux by this port of the ZFS file-system to Linux. The added properties were context, fscontext, defcontext, and rootcontext.

For the SELinux users out there interested in the ZFS file-system that want to learn more, see this Git commit for all of the details.
