Thanks for your civil reply. Honestly, I wasn't expecting that just because of what Slashdot has devolved into.

I agree it is probably unlikely that there are backdoors, and since it was integrated into the kernel and the codebase was used for the SEBSD project (I might be wrong on that), it has been pretty thoroughly reviewed.

I do think depending on the needs of the people wanting to use it, security concerns are valid given the revelations from the NSA in recent years. I don't think the revelations indicate that particular project is compromised, but I understand being concerned.

Your point is still wrong. I'm not going to check it; that doesn't mean there are not issues.

The article you linked to only supports my point.

For example:

"I looked into SE Linux some years ago, but ran out of time to really get into it. I am a Debian developer, however."

However, May was confident about the integrity of the code.

Russel Coker also states that he thinks the code is fine, but doesn't support that at all. So the article amounts to the opinions of two people.

No where does it state that an audit has been done, and it seems people just have trust in the "many eyes" theory. Which is generally a wholesome theory, but in this case and with the NSA's credibility tarnished, I think it merits a TrueCrypt style review.

Otherwise, my point still stands; Better to use RSBAC for the moment.

His point has merit, and it doesn't rest on him being able to find a bug himself.

The NSA has shown themselves to be untrustworthy, and there are contests each year showing just how to hide malicious code in plain sight.

Until SELinux has had a code review that is public and verified, like what happened with TrueCrypt, then people are probably better of using RSBAC or GRSecurity.

This part of your post is wrong. More guns, less guns, won't make any difference, has nothing to do with the issue. It is just a sideshow.

This is flat out wrong. High school kids should not be able to access automatic firearms for which you should have specialized training to use in the first place.

Gun regulation in this country is a joke. Removing easy access to powerful weapons should be a priority, after fixing healthcare.

This is where you're correct.

I'm a far-left "you can have my guns when you take them from my cold, dead hands" type...

Glad you understand the important of good, reliable government provided healthcare.

The answer is less guns, not more.

A right to guns does not even make sense, civilians would stand no chance against the US military. Besides, if people didn't rise up after the snowden revelations and rampant corruption, it's unlikely they are going to.

NO, the answer is health care. Plenty of other countries have more guns per capita than the US and don't suffer these issues. You know why? Because people are looked after and get the help they need, rather than some nonsense ridiculous purely free market approach.

The fact that in almost all of these incidents the shooters had mental issues should give you morons some type of hint....now, are you going to take it?
