 The adventure continues: SELinux

Nice article about using SELinux.

"Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is an implementation of mandatory access control in the Linux kernel using the Linux Security Modules framework. This is in opposition to a regular Linux implementation, where a discretionary access control model is used. Mandatory access controls allows for more granular control of what users and processes can do on a system. SELinux implements role-based access controls, which helps to define particular functions that roles can do, making it somewhat easier to administrate (versus having to define a profile for every user on your system)."
