>
> Abstract:
>
> Over a decade ago researchers at the National Information Assurance
> Research Lab at the NSA identified a need for flexible mandatory
> access controls to help provide a solid foundation for secure systems.
> This resulted in the development of the FLASK architecture, which has
> seen implementation in a number of operating systems. The most
> prominent implementation of FLASK is in the form of SELinux. Since the
> early days of SELinux adoption much work as been done to improve the
> utility and usability of SELinux. These enhancement have turned
> SELinux from a prototype research implementation into a robust access
> control mechanism that is used by a variety of customers world wide.
>
> This talk is a from the ground up journey through SELinux,. It starts
> with why do we need this technology and then moves through where to
> obtain it, how it works, and how to identify and solve problems
> associated with SELinux. In addition to these basics the talk also
> covers slightly more advanced topics such as how to construct policy
> for new applications and how to address customizations particular to
> your deployments.
