In his previous talk, Paul talked about getting your system to work with SELinux. This involved setting the security on your files and directories so that they worked with SELinux. However, many people have customised their Linux installs and want SELinux to do what they say, not the other way around. Sysadmins in particular are not 'run of the mill' users, and they have different requirements to what typically comes out of the box. Situations such as serving web pages from NFS shares or non-standard directories, or installing applications in custom locations, need specialised configuration of SELinux in order to make it work with your needs.
This talk will deal with those situations. Fortunately for Sysadmins, much of the work in developing SELinux policies for Linux has focussed on their requirements. Paul will show you a few of the things behind
the scenes that make your job as a Sysadmin much easier and safer with SELinux.
