SELinux Developer Summit

March 3rd, 2006 | Tags:

Today is the SELinux Developer Summit, with about thirty core SELinux developers. It’s been interesting to see how far things have come in just the last year in terms of both the technology advances and deployments of SELinux. It’s kind of disappointing to see the media characterize SELinux as just being a Red Hat thing, when it is a long standing open source community project.

In this developer summit, there are folk from (at least):

Atsec
Hitachi Software
Penn State University
Trusted Computer Solutions
MITRE
Debian
IBM
Ubuntu
HP
NSA
Tresys

Red Hat has three developers attending (i.e. less than 10%).

The symposium itself went really well, with high quality talks including contributions from BSD folk and even Microsoft Research. I believe the proceedings will be available soon.
