Hello Casey and List,

	I saw a kernel project on [1].
Which goes like this :-

> Implement network interfce default labeling for Smack.

> Today all unlabeled networking traffic is treated with one
> "ambient" Smack label. This project consists of taking advantage
> of mechanisms already in the labeled networking code to allow
> different labels to be assigned to packets based on the itnerface
> upon which they appeared.

> Difficulty 5.

I see that the project has not been done yet, as I cannot find any
described implementation, correct my if I go wrong here.

I really want this to be my first kernel project. I am a relatively
new comer to the community, and I want to contribute in all my capacity.

Could you please advise me a starting point for this project ?
Like the area of the codebase I need to study before attempting
Any help would be appreciated.

Best wishes,
