SELinux for mere mortals

From Red Hat Summit 2012

While Security-Enhanced Linux® is a powerful tool for securing Linux servers, it has a reputation for being difficult to configure. As a result, many system administrators simply turn it off.


Fortunately, the incredible amount of work completed by the SELinux community in recent years has made SELinux much more system administrator-friendly. In this session, Thomas Cameron uses real-world examples to demonstrate how to use SELinux and explains the basics of SELinux, including:

  • Configuring, analyzing, and correcting SELinux errors.
  • Writing basic policies to enable non-SELinux-aware applications to work on SELinux-protected systems.
