New security-enhanced Linux released

Author: JT Smith

Slashdot: "James Cho writes: "Four days ago, the 2nd public release of the NSA's 'security-enhanced' version of Linux (it's not an entire
distribution) came out. The NSA describes it as having 'a strong, flexible mandatory access control architecture incorporated
into the major subsystems of the kernel". However it must be noted that this 'is not intended as a complete security solution
for Linux' and that there is 'still much work needed to develop a complete security solution'."
