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.
Tresys have announced version 20100525 of the SELinux userspace suite. Changes in this version include the ability to enable or disable semodule support, generation of ‘dontaudit’ rules via audtit2allow, improved documentation and improved support across different distributions. Source packages may be downloaded here, with the entire repository also available via git.
Tresys have announced the release of version 2.20100524 of Reference Policy. Included in this release is a merge of a significant portion of the Fedora policy package, support for non-graphical X clients, updated Gentoo support, and improved documentation. This release is available at the download page.
