Much has been written on SELinux, and a lot of it seems confusing. It's buzzword heavy, involves locking your computer up, has a strange new set of permissions that are obscure in architecture and silently fails where things used to just work. Why use it?
Well, for most people, it's not actually that hard to understand. In this talk, Paul Wayper talks about how to make sense of what SELinux does, and how to keep it out of the way and get on with using your computer. In the process Paul will deal with the background to SELinux, what it's main aims are, and why you really do want it turned on.
