Most things in the realm of tighter access control are experimental,
and tend to stay that way for a long time due, probably, to the lack
of cohesion behind the various movements. But as I mentioned before,
you'll probably want to examine subdomain from Wirex, SELinux, maybe
LIDS, RSBAC, and doubtless there are others, but I'd start with those.
