    Version 2.6.28 of the Linux kernel was released during Christmas, so I thought it'd be worthwhile waiting until after typical vacation days to post a summary of changes to the security subsystem. As always, thanks to the Kernel Newbies folk who track major kernel changes. Serge Hallyn added a dummy policy for SELinux to the kernel tree. This is useful for testing SELinux and a base for building minimal and experimental security policies. Have you noticed some of the security changes to the latest upstream Linux kernel? Read on for more information on these changes.
