    Hi,
    I am going to to enhance my server security by making use of SELinux. As I read in the documentation, it can really make your server 'brick wall' ;) , SELinux feautres are very impressive, though rules writting is quite comples but definitely it is worthy to spend lot of time with SELinux papers.

    The only problem is, that I can't predict how SELinux deals with cPanel software. I've heard that there is a problem with users quotas - anyone can confirm this?

    Do you guys know something about disadvantages, or any kind of incompatibility of SELinux with cPanel stuff?

    Is anyone has experience with this and can share it with cPanel forum users :) ?

    selinux + cpanel = no love - too many rules to write, not specifically designed to the same goal - really rock solid security

    gesec kernel + cpanel = love - simple, fast, hell security

    I've heard lots of bad opinions about grsecurity kernel patch and cPanel software - increased load average and other problems. Are you really using grsecurity with cPanel and 2.6.X kernel?
