In particular, an additional access control.
LSM is not for changing the existing policy,
it is for imposing additional policy.

You could, of course, add code to act on the
integrity measurements you've made, in which
case you could be in conformance with the
stated eligibilty requirements.

It sure took the wind out of the sails for the
SGI audit implementation.
