SPF Based Selinux Operating System for Multimedia Applications

Trusted Operating Systems, offer a number of security mechanisms that can help protect information, make a system difficult to break into, and confine attacks far better than traditional operating systems. However, this security will come at a cost, since it can degrade the performance of an operating system. This performance loss is one of the reasons why Trusted Operating Systems have not become popular. While Trusted Operating Systems offer an incredible amount of security, observations about computing workloads suggest that only some parts of the operating system security are actually necessary. Web servers are the best example.
