Introduction

SELinux Policy IDE (SLIDE) is an integrated development environment for SELinux developed by Tresys Technology. Some basic features of SLIDE include:

  • Graphical user interface for policy development
  • Integration with Reference Policy
  • Project creation wizards
  • Auto-completion of interface names
  • Policy syntax highlighting
  • Easily compile and build module packages
  • Hook into standard Eclipse search
  • Basic refactoring features including adding and removing ifdef, optional and tunable blocks
  • Integrated remote policy installation and audit log monitoring

SLIDE supports both modular and monolithic policy development, and is built as a plugin to the Eclipse SDK.

The goal of the SLIDE project is to make policy development for SELinux easier.
