Managing SELinux Policies: Implementing and Customizing
In this article, we'll look at how to manage SELinux policies, implement and customize them, and how to troubleshoot problems.
SELinux is an important part of modern Linux security. It's designed to enhance the system's security by allowing users to set fine-grained access control policies for different processes and files. This helps prevent exploits from running as root or modifying system files that are outside their scope.
SELinux can be configured in two ways: centrally (through the policy management tool) or locally (at the user level). When you configure SELinux centrally, it's known as "policy management." When you configure SELinux locally, it's called "user space configuration."
If you're a Linux administrator who wants to manage SELinux policies or implement them on your own servers, then the article linked below will help you do just that!
