Security-Enhanced Linux for mere mortals

In the past, Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) had a reputation of being hard to configure and maintain. Often, Linux admins would turn it off. But SELinux is an important part of a broad security strategy. It’s now a foundational part of important technologies, such as Linux containers, and supports security and scalability in container offerings, such as Red Hat OpenShift. Through the hard work of the SELinux community, SELinux is now easier to manage than ever.

In this session, we’ll use real-world examples to demonstrate how to use SELinux. You’ll learn the basics of SELinux, including how to:

- Configure SELinux.

- Analyze and correct SELinux errors.

- Set rules and create basic policies for applications on SELinux-protected systems.
