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 could have written a short introduction to Tomoyo too besides of just providing the links. Anyway: ) on that site there's a nice "Secure OS Comparison At a Glance", including SELinux, Tomoyo, AppArmor and Smack:
