I prefer Novell's approach. It is easy like using iptables.

In TOMOYO Linux, I do in the following way. allow_network TCP bind 8081 if task.uid=1017 allow_network UDP bind 8081 if task.uid=1017 allow_network TCP bind 8081 if task.uid=1026 allow_network UDP bind 8081 if task.uid=1026

I wish LSM has post-accept() and post-recvmsg() hooks. Don't you think it's nice if administrator can limit client's IP addresses and ports (even if tcp-wrappers was bypassed due to buffer overflow) ?
