Integrating Security into Vyatta


Stephen Hemminger


I would like to talk about my experience with integrating security into Vyatta an router based distribution). The project has some issues that are common to other environments, but many of the challenges are unique because Vyatta tries to provide a user experience similar to Cisco or Juniper. The router vendors provide a proprietary all-in-one solution, but Linux environment is built on a open-source and component model. The talk will cover the security model, and how it is implemented using capabilities and SELinux.

I am particularly interested in any feedback or suggestions on how to provide a more complete and better solution.
