I would have to go to the current MeeGo IVI compliance definition to
determine the scope of security in MeeGo IVI.

I would imagine this is indeed the case.

Well, this might make sense since there are a number of effective security
frameworks that come from the Linux community directly and there is
well-known security domain expertise in that community. On the other hand a
consistent system-wide framework that gets enforced might be effective. I
don't know about discussions of either currently in MeeGo IVI.

This seems like the most reasonable conclusion. It'd be nice to hear what
the MeeGo IVI architects and perhaps even the MeeGo architects are thinking
with regard to containers and security. It may make the situation clearer.
