Red Hat unveils Linux security upgrades

Red Hat is enhancing the security model in the next version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux to include support for Security-Enhanced Linux (SE Linux).

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0, due out in 2005, will support the National Security Agency-funded SE Linux project, which adds multi-level security to
the operating system (OS).

Linux creator Linus Torvalds said much of the code to enable SE Linux is already a part of the recently released Linux 2.6 kernel.
