"SE Linux" is all about security:

Quote:

Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is a security architecture integrated into the 2.6.x kernel using the Linux Security Modules (LSM).

Taking advantage of SE Linux (or, alternatively, disabling it) is largely a matter of configuration (for example, setting "policies").

The link above should have plenty of information for you.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

PS:
This article (by Mick Bauer, of Linux Journal's great monthly security column, "The Paranoid Penguin") is also a great introduction:
