Red Hat brings SE Linux to Fedora

Thursday, 1 April 2004, 12:35 PM EST

Red Hat Inc. took the first step this week toward the inclusion of Security Enhanced Linux in its enterprise offerings when it released Fedora Core 2, test2.

The latest beta of Fedora, an openly developed and constantly changing version of Linux sponsored by the Raleigh, N.C.-based distributor, includes SE Linux and is based on the 2.6 kernel. Enterprises are unlikely to deploy Fedora for mission-critical systems, but it does serve as a proving ground for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. RHEL 4.0 is on course for an early 2005 release and is likely to include SE Linux, said Fedora technical lead Cristian Gafton.
