   1--- What is TOMOYO? ---
   2
   3TOMOYO is a name-based MAC extension (LSM module) for the Linux kernel.

   5LiveCD-based tutorials are available at
   6http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/1.7/1st-step/ubuntu10.04-live/
   7http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/1.7/1st-step/centos5-live/ .
   8Though these tutorials use non-LSM version of TOMOYO, they are useful for you
   9to know what TOMOYO is.
  10
  11--- How to enable TOMOYO? ---
  12
  13Build the kernel with CONFIG_SECURITY_TOMOYO=y and pass "security=tomoyo" on
  14kernel's command line.

  16Please see http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/2.3/ for details.

  45--- What is future plan? ---
  46
  47We believe that inode based security and name based security are complementary
  48and both should be used together. But unfortunately, so far, we cannot enable
  49multiple LSM modules at the same time. We feel sorry that you have to give up
  50SELinux/SMACK/AppArmor etc. when you want to use TOMOYO.
  51
  52We hope that LSM becomes stackable in future. Meanwhile, you can use non-LSM
  53version of TOMOYO, available at http://tomoyo.sourceforge.jp/1.7/ .
  54LSM version of TOMOYO is a subset of non-LSM version of TOMOYO. We are planning
  55to port non-LSM version's functionalities to LSM versions.
