Got SELinux?

Finally some good user documentation.

When I started writing this blog several years ago.  My goal was to help out users of SELinux.    Most of the documentation that has been written was far more theoretical, rather then really explaining the user experience.  Over the summer Red Hat decided to fund Murray McAlliser to write :

Security-Enhanced Linux -User Guide


Murray gathered information for many different sources including my blog and worked with many upstream developers and users to put together this guide.  I think it came out pretty good.  Murray is continueing to work on the guide and other SELinux documentation, so please review and tell us what you think.

 

Congratulations on getting that out there! I'm really excited about having this available!

All efforts to improve the SELinux documentation for Fedora are most welcome as I am sure I am not the only person who would like to utilize it, but constantly battle with the complications of making things work under its enhanced security settings.

Any chance of also making the documentation available in PDF and/or ODT formats to make it easy for me to take with me to read on the plane on my netbook?

This is great — and long overdue, I might add! Is there a pdf yet for offline browsing?

Thanks!

Do you know whether we have some offline version for download? I like to read while commuting ... ;-)

Murray has made a couple of downloadable versions available.

There are white margin going from right to left in the document, because it is designed to be printed and put together as a book.
