    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: This release contains bugfixes and additional policy domains and
    permissions. The capability module may now be stacked with SELinux. The
    base for SELinux has been updated to the lsm-2001_10_11 patch against
    kernel 2.4.12.
