45.2. Administrator Control of SELinux

In addition to the tasks often performed by users in Section 45.1, “End User Control of SELinux”, SELinux administrators could be expected to perform a number of additional tasks. These tasks typically require root access to the system. Such tasks are significantly easier under the targeted policy. For example, there is no need to consider adding, editing, or deleting Linux users from the SELinux users, nor do you need to consider roles.

This section covers the types of tasks required of an administrator who maintains Red Hat Enterprise Linux running SELinux.
