Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : policycoreutils
Version : 1.18.1
Release : 2
Summary : SELinux policy core utilities.
Description :
Security-enhanced Linux is a patch of the Linux® kernel and a number of utilities with enhanced security functionality designed to add mandatory access controls to Linux. The Security-enhanced Linux kernel contains new architectural components originally developed to improve the security of the Flask operating system. These architectural components provide general support for the enforcement of many kinds of mandatory access control policies, including those based on the concepts of Type Enforcement®, Role-based Access Control, and Multi-level Security.

policycoreutils contains the policy core utilities that are required for basic operation of a SELinux system. These utilities include load_policy to load policies, setfiles to label filesystems, newrole to switch roles, and run_init to run /etc/init.d scripts in the proper context.

Update Information:

FixFiles.cron is not needed for targeted policy and needs to be reworked for strict policy. Removing prevents possible relabeling problems.

* Fri Nov 12 2004 Dan Walsh dwalsh@redhat.com 1.18.1-2

- Upgrade to latest from NSA
- Eliminate fixfiles.cron
