The 2008 SELinux Developer Summit is to be held in Ottawa on the 22nd of July, as an OLS mini-summit.

This will be an open event, although, to attend, you must be registered to attend OLS.


The developer summit will be held at the Novotel, 33 Nicholas Street, Ottawa. This is a couple of minutes walk from the Congress Center, and directly adjoining Les Suites.

We are confirmed for the "Albion B" conference room at the Novotel.

Event Overview

The SELinux Developer Summit will be a one day summit intended to provide a forum for focused technical discussion regarding current and future development plans for SELinux and related Flask/TE projects. The intended audience will consist of current SELinux developers, system/security administrators, distribution organizers/packagers, and power users. The format will be a set of moderated discussion panels with brief presentations.

This year's presentations and discussions will be divided into two categories: usability and infrastructure. General usability of SELinux systems has consistently improved but, with increasingly wide adoption of SELinux, also become ever more important. Usability topics we plan on addressing include policy development, administration of SELinux enabled systems, and desktop integration including X11. The core infrastructure topics include embedded systems, label translation, userspace object managers, network filesystems, and labeled networking.
