Paranoid Penguin - Introduction to SELinux
Besides Type Enforcement, SELinux includes a second model, called Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). Although I'm out of space for now, RBAC builds on the concepts we've already discussed, providing controls especially useful when real human users, as opposed to dæmons and other automated processes, are concerned.
Next time, I'll describe RBAC at length and begin going into greater depth on how actually to use SELinux, beginning with Fedora and Red Hat's “targeted” policy. Until then, be safe!
