SELinux, increasing security one compartment at a time

Author: Bharvani Toshaan

Security Enhanced Linux, is disabled in most cases due to fact that most people do not take the time to understand how to work with SELinux. However security increases, by keeping SELinux on, as all applications are segregated therefor even if a intruder were to enter it would only affect that application. In RHEL, CentOS or Fedora most applications are predefined in SELinux and can be adjusted, however other applications can be added easily with the integrated tools, allowing you to run any custom application. The presentation explains what SELinux is, how it works, how to implement the predefined policies and how to create custom policies.
