A seatbelt for server software: SELinux blocks real-world exploits



Hi

An extensive report on the real world advantages of SELinux. A must read if you care about security (and you should).

http://www.linuxworld.com/news/2008/022408-selinux.html

"Linux security experts are reporting a growing list of real-world security situations in which the US National Security Agency's SELinux security framework contains the damage resulting from a flaw in other software. These so-called "mitigations" are showing that a Linux feature that began as an esoteric security measure is starting to prove its worth"
