Quick poll for Linux users: are you more familiar with using SELinux or Kerberos (or neither)?

Using, as in having a mental model of what it does and knowing some ways to interact with it, as an end user.

(These are of course two unrelated technologies doing different things.)

@bugaevc SELinux, but only just barely; it's been a while since I touched it, I'd have to look up the commands. Kerberos, on the other hand, I never touched at all. I understand the purposes of both.

@bugaevc To be clear: I did vote (for SELinux), I'm just clarifying my level of understanding in case you want to treat it as "Neither".

@bugaevc I've occasionally disabled selinux to get shit done, but not in years. No clue how it works.

@bugaevc I know SELinux more, but Iǜe heard that AppArmor is much more simple and easier to setup and use.

@bugaevc Kerberos! I actually kind of like it; maybe just because I'm the only user of the entire realm :P

sure, some parts are not super convenient & some parts seem to be stuck in the 90s, but the main idea is cool
