SELinux Game Learn SELinux By Doing


The SELinux Game provides an environment to learn about SELinux by doing it instead of reading about how to do it. There are a lot of internet resources that describe how SELinux works, but there aren’t many opportunities to try actually try it.

The SELinux Game presents different scenarios, each with a problem that is SELinux related. These scenarios simulate a sysadmin being called to look into a situation they can’t predict. The goal of the player is to demonstrate SELinux skillz by solving each scenario.

Some of the exercises simulate an intruder on your system, so knowing when to fix the AVC denial and when to recognize that they are protecting you is part of it.

The scenarios are run locally using Vagrant, which makes it easy to run. For more information on this, read the Getting Started guide.
