more access control

Filed under: apple,selinux — admin @ 12:54 am

Karl McMillan and Chad Sellers have both some nice blog entries [2] due to the recent OS X trojaner: They both sign the need of more restrictive and finer grained security controls for operating systems.

SELinux or the Sandbox for Apple, which comes from TrustedBSD a sister project of SELinux (circuit close!), both provide systems like these. As Redhat is now including and propagating the use of SELinux, as well the Fedora Community integrated some nice support into Fedora 9, it even looks like apple will more and more come with things like that. And they seem to have started to integrate it into CUPS.

Good way to proceed.
