Getting Started with SE Linux HOWTO: the new SE Linux

Last update: 1 November 2005

The 1 November 2005 edition of this book has been created by 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 Thank you to Ivan for doing this.
