SELinux in Hardy

Filed under: Security,Ubuntu — kees @ 1:32 pm

Hardy has seen a major overhaul in the SELinux department. Prior to the Hardy UDS, the folks at Tresys had contacted me, asking “why doesn’t SELinux work with Ubuntu?” and I basically said, “because no one has given it any attention, yet — feel free to help out.” And so they did! :)

As a result, if AppArmor isn’t the MAC system you want, you can now install a functional SELinux system on Ubuntu with just a simple “sudo apt-get install selinux”.

  1. Kees – I’m so happy to hear everything has been merged. And to think we only resurrected the -hardened team six months ago with this as one of the goals.

    I’m going to do my best to rally some adoption for SELinux. Great work!
