- [Instructor] Mandatory Access Control systems,…are the most stringent type of access control.…In Mandatory Access Control, or MAC systems,…the operating system itself, restricts the permissions…that may be granted to users and processes…on system resources.…Users themselves cannot modify permissions.…For this reason, MAC is rarely, fully implemented…on production systems outside of highly secure environments.…MAC is normally implemented as a rule-based…access control system,…where users and resources have labels,…and the operating system makes access control decisions…by comparing those labels.…
The most common example of an operating system…implementing MAC, is Security-Enhanced Linux, or SELinux,…a Linux Kernel security module developed…by the U.S. National Security Agency in the 1990s,…and included in some Linux distributions,…including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Fedora.…So lets take a look at a brief demonstration.…I have here an ssh session open to a Linux system,…running Red Hat Enterprise Linux,…
