The Guide to Writing SELinux Policy
Prev Home Next

1. Introduction

In "Getting Started with SE Linux HOWTO", you were introduced to Security Enhanced Linux. This document goes a little further than the "basic stuff" such as installation, adding a new user and terminology. SE Linux contains a number of policy files relating to things you want to do, such as executing certain programs or accessing certain files or directories, and this document will cover writing/editing of those policy files. This document can be read from beginning to end, or used as a reference for various things you might require an explanation for.

1.1. Feedback

Comments on this document are welcome. Please email [email protected]

1.2. Disclaimer

This document is a guide only. I strongly recommend you install SE Linux on a test machine before deploying on a production server. Please read "Getting Started with SE Linux HOWTO" to become familiar with basic concepts.
