  Description     : application security framework

AppArmor is an application security tool designed to provide an 
easy-to-use security framework for your applications. AppArmor 
proactively protects the operating system and applications from 
external or internal threats, even zero-day attacks, by enforcing
good behavior and preventing even unknown application flaws from 
being exploited. AppArmor security policies, called "profiles", 
completely define what system resources individual applications
can access, and with what privileges. A number of default profiles 
are included with AppArmor, and using a combination of advanced 
static analysis and learning-based tools, AppArmor profiles for 
even very complex applications can be deployed successfully in a 
matter of hours.
