I am writing a proposal article for a linux centered magazine on the
subject of AppArmor & MinorFs and the access control model used and
enabled by MinorFs.
Currently I talk about MinorFs as a 'capability based' system.
MinorFs in contrast with most recent capability based systems that
advocate to be 'object capability' systems, uses password capabilities.
I am not sure if the term object capability system is the general modern
term for capability systems, or if password capability systems are
excluded by this term. Thus my question: Should I call MinorFs a
'capability based' or an 'object capability' system?
Further, if anyone would be interested in reviewing the proposal article
before I submit it to the magazine, please let me know.
