CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_ENABLE_SECMARK_DEFAULT: NSA SELinux enable new secmark network controls by default

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX_ENABLE_SECMARK_DEFAULT:

Help text

This option determines whether the new secmark-based network controls will be enabled by default. If not, the old internal per-packet controls will be enabled by default, preserving old behavior.

If you enable the new controls, you will need updated SELinux userspace libraries, tools and policy. Typically, your distribution will provide these and enable the new controls in the kernel they also distribute.

Note that this option can be overridden at boot with the selinux_compat_net parameter, and after boot via /selinux/compat_net. See Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt for details on this parameter.

If you enable the new network controls, you will likely also require the SECMARK and CONNSECMARK targets, as well as any conntrack helpers for protocols which you wish to control.

If you are unsure what to do here, select N.
