Summary     : Security Enhanced PostgreSQL
Description :
Security Enhanced PostgreSQL is an extension of PostgreSQL
based on SELinux security policy, that applies fine grained
mandatory access control to many objects within the database,
and takes advantage of user authorization integrated within
the operating system. SE-PostgreSQL works as a userspace
reference monitor to check any SQL query.

Update Information:

Row-level access control did not work for "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM t;" correctly.
A previous fix is not conprehensive  This fix can cover a case when FROM caluse
contains subqueries.
