    Default AppArmor basics

    Hi,

    Do You actually use AppArmor on your desktop computers ?
    How is it better/worse from SElinux ?

    Does anyone has some basic guide on how to set it up to help prevent threats from basic network applications like i.e. firefox ?

    Thanks alot for help in advance.

    Best regards,
    Greg

    There is a wizard.

    And forget Novell, the project is hosted at Ubuntu. Novell docs are obsolete.

    Code:
    ----------------
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AppArmor
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppArmor
    https://apparmor.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page
    ----------------

    It is since 2.6.36 part of the kernel.
    Novell stopped the project in 2007 (I think) but it is not that ubuntu took
    it over (but ubuntu has good documentation for it).

    The official documentation is at kernel.org
