SELinux Development

There are multiple components of SELinux that a developer may be interested in.

Mail lists and IRC

SELinux development is primarily done on the NSA SELinux mailing list (Unofficial searchable list archive)

Reference policy development is primarily done on the Tresys SELinux Reference Policy development mailing list (official archives)

SELinux developers can also be found on IRC at irc.freenode.org channel #selinux

Reference Policy

Users and vendors who are interested in developing SELinux policy should go to the Contributing to Reference Policy page at the Reference Policy project site.

Kernel developers

To develop patches for the kernel security subsystem, use git to clone the security-testing-2.6 tree

Information on Adding New Permissions to the kernel.

If you are looking for something to do the Kernel TODO has many ideas to get started on.

Userspace developers

To Contribute to the SELinux userspace see the contributing page on its project site.

XXX Add todo page XXX

Userspace object managers

If you are interested in developing userspace object managers for SELinux see
