Linux Application Security - Apparmour

Postby Apurva » Wed Jul 05, 2006 4:49 pm

Hi,

Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Server ships with an Application Security application called apparmour absolutely free of cost.

AppArmor offers the following features:

* Full integration. AppArmor is integrated with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 SP3 and openSUSE.
* Seamless integration. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell, which now includes AppArmor, integrates easily with it.
* Easy deployment. AppArmor includes a full suite of console and YaST-based tools to help you develop, deploy and maintain application security policies.
* Powerful security. AppArmor protects the operating system, custom and third-party applications from both external and internal threats by enforcing appropriate application behavior.
* Reporting and alerting. Built-in features allow you to schedule detailed event reports and configure alerts based on user-defined events.
* Sub-process confinement. AppArmor allows you to define security policies for individual Perl and PHP scripts for tighter Web-server security.

The benefits include :

* Quickly and effectively secure Linux-based programs
* Protect business-critical Linux-based applications and services
* Enforce system and data integrity with preconfigured templates
* Reduce business risk
* Comply with government regulations
* Manage ongoing return on investment
* Reduce total cost of ownership
* Improve IT productivity
* Enjoy consistent manageability
