Linus Torvalds on SELinux

    Date03 Oct 2007
    Posted ByBrittany Day
    Continuing his outspoken nature, Torvalds reigns in on the issues between LSM and SELinux. The argument as to which method should be the foundation, is being hotly debated. "You security guys are insane..." Torvalds states. What's he judging? the value of SELinux as the framework (maybe it's good, maybe it's not) or something else?

    Why are security experts the focus? It seems here, that Torvalds is focusing on the source, not the content or issue itself.

    Aren't we past that?
