Well, life has been pretty busy since my last diary entry shortly after we launched the TrustedBSD project in April! A fair amount of progress has been made -- support for capabilities in FreeBSD, extended attributes, cleanups of the authorization code, beginnings of mandatory access control, documentation, as well as several workshops and conferences, an upcoming paper at BSDCon, et al. It has been busy. :-)

Currently in Maryland, but preparing to move back up to Massachusetts again next week. Now have an apartment in South Hadley across the street from Mt Holyoke College -- all extremely pretty, and very convenient. Coffee Shop is within wireless ethernet range, which is a godsend :-). Cable modem is in and working, but the phone company was on strike, so no phone line for another week or two. Oh well, who needs phones when you have the Internet?

Back to more of the grind: committing patches to the FreeBSD tree based on TrustedBSD improvements, and preparing to commit capabilities support to 5.0-CURRENT.
