Getting Started with SE Linux HOWTO: the new SE Linux
update: 1 November 2005
The 1 November 2005 edition of this book has been created by Linuxtopia.org
to bring it in line with the latest releases of Fedora Core.
This document has been revised for the new SE Linux. The old "Getting
Started with SE Linux HOWTO" will remain in place as a legacy document,
but it is highly recommened that all new installs of SE Linux use the new
SE Linux. The new SE Linux runs on 2.6.x kernels and has also been
backported for 2.4.x. This document is largely a duplicate of that for the
old SE Linux, with modifications made where necessary.
This document is a general introduction to NSA Security Enhanced Linux.
It is mainly focused on Debian and as such command examples given for
package management are largely Debian based. This document is tailored
towards people wanting to get started with SE Linux so there's no
confusing advanced stuff here. See the Resources section for links to
other SE Linux material.
This document has been translated in to Russian by Ivan Pesin. You can
find the Russian version at http://gazette.linux.ru.net/rus/articles/intro_selinux.html
Thank you to Ivan for doing this.
