They changed the NSA SELinux tag to SELinux

Το Linux Enhanced Security (SELinux) αποτελεί μέρος του κύριου πυρήνα για δύο δεκαετίες για να εφαρμόζει πολιτικές ασφαλείας ελέγχου πρόσβασης. Τώρα χρησιμοποιείται ευρέως για τη βελτίωση της of Linux servers and other systems.

Those new to Linux may not know that SELinux comes from the US National Security Agency (NSA). The new Linux 6.6 kernel, however, removes all references to the NSA.


Η Υπηρεσία Εθνικής Ασφάλειας των Ηνωμένων Πολιτειών φέρεται να ανέπτυξε στον αρχικό κώδικα για το Security Enhanced Linux και ήταν ο κύριος αρχικός προγραμματιστής. Η NSA has contributed to SELinux over the years, and as its adoption grew, others, individual developers and organizations alike, began to help develop it.

But in the last decade a lot has been heard about the NSA due to various scandals, and some open source fans did not want the NSA's involvement in SELinux constantly making critical remarks. Although there are NSA developers still working on SELinux, starting with Linux 6.6, the "NSA" tags are removed - in part to make it seem like it's not just an NSA thing.

Stephen Smalley stated that he changed "NSA SELinux" to simply "SELinux", stating "we've come a long way since the original NSA submission and I think SELinux is a true community at this point, so removing the NSA brand makes sense." The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
