Actually it's having to dynamically alter your policy, because of the
weakness of it's expression that is hacky. Between selinux and netfilter
you should be able to precisely state your policy.

The only thing is his UPnP nternet Gateway Device (IGD) controller via
Dbus should be a userland process and this deputy should be able to
inspect the selinux domain of the requesting process and based it's
decisions on that as well.

In theory yes, of course some people are disabling even the targeted
policy and the strict policy might not yet be ready for primetime.
You'd need the strict policy if you don't want most user's processes
running as unconfined_t .

How is the work on getting strict policy working well going anyway?
