Linux Linux has been described as one of the most secure operating systems available, but the National Security Agency (NSA) has taken Linux to the next level with the introduction of Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux). SELinux takes the existing GNU/Linux operating system and extends it with kernel and user-space modifications to make it bullet-proof. If you're running a 2.6 kernel today, you might be surprised to know that you're using SELinux right now! This article explores the ideas behind SELinux and how it's implemented.

You can do both.
And you can use SeLinux with virtualisation.
EC2 ( http://aws.amazon.com/ec2 ) permit SeLinux :
$ ssh root@ec2-xx-xxx-xxx-xxx.compute-1.amazonaws.com getenforce
Enforcing


Btw, my personnal system :
$ /usr/sbin/getenforce
Enforcing


A log of RHEL / Fedora have SeLinux in Enforcing mode.
