In response to questions from readers, security expert James Tumbull answers some security related questions about Linux and Linux distros in this article from SearchEnterpriseLinux.  The very first question was about AppArmor – an included feature of SUSE Linux Enterprise (both Server and Desktop).  His answer…

“AppArmor is perfectly suitable as an alternative to SELinux.”

We have to agree, but we also think AppArmor is FAR easier to use.  If you’d like to learn more about AppArmor go here and to see Novell’s comparison of AppArmor vs SELinux, go here.

Did I mention, that it’s included in SUSE Linux Enterprise — including the easy to use tools!?!?
