Gentoo Hardened SELinux state

Filed under

Since last post, we’ve been working on the further stabilization and bug fixing of the SELinux policies within Gentoo Hardened. You might have noticed that we started working on the QA of the packages, like I promised in the last post. The binaries within selinux-base-policy are now published somewhere on blueness’ developer page since he’s proxy’ing all my commits until recruiters get the chance to pick up my recruitment bug. Other patches that are coming up will be published likewise as well if they get too big to be within the main Portage tree.

Next to the binaries, I’m currently checking if the SELinux policy packages can become EAPI-4 compliant (they’re currently still using EAPI-0). Same for the SELinux-specific packages, like policycoreutils, libsemanage, libselinux etc.

rest here

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
