      SELinux

      Just like we have an NSA key in W2K, and backdoors in other security products such as Checkpoint, what backdoors has the NSA built into this one? It is certainly better than standard Linux and you are limiting the backdoors to experts who would normally only use them to prevent unlawful activity, but I would rather see a secure linux developed by an independant group preferably in somewhere like Switzerland who really understand privacy and security issues.

        NSA Backdoors

        If you having problems with the fact that NSA hosted the exchange and chaired the collaboration effort. Go to
        http://www.nsa.gov/selinux/contrib.html
        and look at the list of contributors. A lot of well known names in there. I don’t think they were all fooled by a backdoor from the NSA.
