5.0 out of 5 stars Great Overview to a Potentially Complex Topic 21 Jun. 2008
By T. Fogarty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a great introduction to the topic of SELinux because of the information on its developmental background and lucid description of the objectives, advantages and maintenance of a SELinux system. I would recommend this book to someone who has a firm grasp of basic security concepts and programming principles and is interested in getting exposure to the security enhanced model of Linux.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good 27 Feb. 2009
By Justin C. Klein Keane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is dated, so if you're looking for details on 2.6 kernel implementations you're going to be disappointed. Worse still, the book doesn't cover distributions that don't already have SELinux support. Overall I found the discussion of the theory of SELinux to be good, but implementation details were sorely lacking. Ultimately it didn't answer the questions I had (how do I install SELinux on Mandriva and configure it) so wasn't worth the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't realize the book was so outdated! 9 April 2014
By secnerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's 2014. The book references Fedora Core 2. There are some sections that feel obsolete. Not the best O'Reilly book I've seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dated 15 Dec. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The problem with all technical books is that they are quickly dated. I find online information a better source these days.

I was impressed with the quality of the book. This was my first purchase with Amazon, with used books. It looks like a new ones. It was a pleasant surprise when I received. Thank you all, for the great and professional job.
