Privacy, Security, Encryption OSNews reported recently about an article from Sun comparing the Solaris 10 security extensions to RHEL 5's SELinux implementation. James Morris, a SELinux developer, talks about that article. He also links to another article about the same topic.

BTW the mentalrootkit.org link is a lot more interesting than the livejournal link .

This changed my view from
"Linux never bothers about security - only new features & performance"
to
"ahh ... thats how SELinux makes sense & fits in" .


Very interesting read .

Good to see FC7 SELinux protects mozilla browsers and e-mail programs such as thunderbird and evolution by default.In addtition to (optional) noscript firefox extension it benefits overall system security.
