Welcome to the EnGarde Secure Linux resource for all things SELinux!
The developers behind EnGarde Secure Linux are proud to introduce this resource for those wishing to learn more about SELinux. Modules, policies, guides, articles, RSS feeds, and more are all here to benefit everyone from beginners to policy hackers.

Since 2005, EnGarde Secure Linux has included a robust SELinux policy engine to improve the security of the platform, and we felt compiling resources on SELinux was a great way to continue our commitment to providing these tools. Whether you are here to learn about SELinux or whether you want to start writing your own policies, there is something for everyone.

If there are resources that we have missed, or ones you would like to suggest, please suggest them in our forum and we will make sure to include it.
