SE Android Released

by James Morris |  Friday, January 6th, 2012

The NSA have announced the initial public release of the Security Enhanced Android (SE Android) project.

Security Enhanced (SE) Android is a project to identify and address critical gaps in the security of Android. Initially, the SE Android project is enabling the use of SELinux in Android in order to limit the damage that can be done by flawed or malicious apps and in order to enforce separation guarantees between apps. However, the scope of the SE Android project is not limited to SELinux.

SE Android is currently available as source code. Instructions on building and installing the project may be found at the project web page.
