The SELinux architecture provides general support for the enforcement of many kinds of mandatory access control policies. In this session, Dan Walsh will cover the high-level concepts of SELinux. Dan will cover the design decisions which went into developing the different policies, the differences between policies, when and where to use them, and future directions of SELinux within Red Hat solutions.
