Security Enhancements (SE) for Android(TM), formerly known as Security Enhanced Android, was first introduced two years ago at the 2012 Android Builders Summit. In 2013, SE for Android was adopted by Samsung as a core technology of their KNOX enterprise solution and shipped on the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 smartphones. The Android SELinux support contributed by the SE for Android project was also included in the mainline Android 4.3 and 4.4 releases from Google. In this talk, we describe the current state of the SE for Android project as a whole and the current state of SELinux support in mainline Android, explain how to use and apply SELinux in Android, and discuss further Android security enhancements beyond SELinux developed by the SE for Android project.
