I should comment that Samba's security model
``fits inside'' an orange book categoey and level.
A colleague and I described samba security as three-level,
but not in the ``secret" -vs- "top secret" sense
of levels: more like
1) host level -- what machine can connect
2) Service-level -- per-share limitations
3) user-level -- limitations on particular users.
