Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist


        We are at a point where we can support a targeted SELinux
 policy, at least in permissive mode,  I suggest that we ship SELinux
 installed, but turned off by default; and a README or a short shell
 script fr the local administrator to enable SELinux. Our support at
 this point is better in some respects to any other distribution
 (selecting and installing modular policy modules, for instance). All
 the core packages support SELinux (unlike in, say, Ubuntu).

        We can do this by adding selinux-policy-refpolicy-targeted,
 and the dependencies, to the installer.

        With the help of
  apt-rdepends --dotty selinux-policy-refpolicy-targeted
 I have managed to determine that the packages not already included in
 Priority Standard are:
,----[ Additional packages required ]
| Package: selinux-policy-refpolicy-targeted
| Size: 1232692
| Installed-Size: 16712
| Package: policycoreutils
| Size: 348324
| Installed-Size: 3304
| Package: libsemanage1-dev
| Size: 333718
| Installed-Size: 2076
| Package: libsemanage1
| Size: 70910
| Installed-Size: 296
| Package: python-semanage
| Size: 115336
| Installed-Size: 648
| Package: python-selinux
| Size: 61788
| Installed-Size: 308
| Package: python-support
| Size: 22934
| Installed-Size: 104

        The size of the .debs for targeted policy is 2185702 Bytes.

        No special configuration should be required; the default
 configuration out of the box ought to work.

        As shipped, the Debian kernel images have SELinux compiled in,
 but disabled, a command line parameter is required to turn SELinux
 on. When SELinux is turned on (by enabling it in grub), the default
 policy setting are that the machine would come on in permissive mode,
 using the targeted policy; so the worst case scenario is that the
 there would be lots of log messages if someone "accidentally" turned
 on SELinux.

        I think we are ready.  And shipping SELinux by default would
 be a positive thing, in these days of accelerating attacks :)

SELinux is installed by default, although doing so did not involve any
d-i changes. Closing this bug report.
