Towards Making SELinux Smart: Leveraging SELinux to Protect End Nodes in a Federated Environment
This paper describes an intelligent, active, real-time, risk adaptable access control (RAdAC) system designed to extend the benefits of the National Security Agency's Security-Enhanced Linux (NSA's SELinux) by using SELinux not only as a secure base, but also as a source of input features to a Support Vector Machine (SVM) that will classify events/attacks in several categories. By enhancing SELinux with intelligence, it is hoped that the design will lead to real-time, non-signature based defensive systems capable of detecting and taking action against hostile users in the earliest stages of an attack.
