    About: NSA Security-enhanced Linux is a set of patches to the Linux kernel
    and some utilities to incorporate a strong, flexible mandatory access
    control architecture into the major subsystems of the kernel. It provides a
    mechanism to enforce the separation of information based on confidentiality
    and integrity requirements, which allows threats of tampering and bypassing
    of application security mechanisms to be addressed and enables the
    confinement of damage that can be caused by malicious or flawed
    applications. It includes a set of sample security policy configuration
    files designed to meet common, general-purpose security goals.
    Changes: Many bugfixes and improvements in both LSM and SELinux, new and
    reworked hooks to control additional operations, and domains for hwclock,
    ping, FreeSWAN IKE daemon, and Apache. None of these has been extensively
    tested by the NSA SELinux team and may require some additional work. While
    FreeSWAN and Apache policy is provided, no FreeSWAN or Apache software or
    patches are included.
