I'm looking for equivalent technologies to this on *nix, BSD, whatever... for the sake of comparison.


Software Restriction Policy for Windows XP Clients
Software restriction policy provides administrators with a way to identify software and control its ability to run on local computers. This tool can help protect computers that run Microsoft� Windows� XP Professional against known conflicts and safeguard them against malicious software such as viruses and Trojan horse programs. Software restriction policy integrates fully with the Active Directory� directory service and Group Policy. You can also use it on stand-alone computers.
Anyone know of examples that compares to this on other OS's?
