About this Hands-on Lab

Security Enhanced Linux is a security architecture that adds expanded security controls to applications, processes, and files. It is also the cause of many software issues, especially when using uncommon configurations or deviating too much from the default. Luckily, there are a number of tools for viewing, changing, and otherwise managing our SELinux profile. This hands-on lab tests on these tools.
