June 2010 – Apparmor
What a subject.. We’ll step out of the T&T section this month to visit the Security Discussions area.
bodhi.zazen spends a lot of time in this section, educating and providing support.
apparmor (Application Armor) does what its name suggests, it helps protecting the system if an application gets compromised.
apparmor works with specific application profiles that regulate and define the applications access in addition to the usual system permissions (which
apparmor can only restrict).
By default, Ubuntu comes with
apparmor profiles for
firefox (which is not enabled) and the guest session.
Enjoy the readings, test it out and report back in the threads!
