comment How trustworthy is SELinux?
Good points. And given your arguments I think you may be right about it being unanswerable. Thanks +1

comment How trustworthy is SELinux?
I'm sorry, but belief is the last thing I want involved in an answer to my question. Thanks for answering, but it tries to invalidate the proposal in my question, thereby carefully dodges the actual question. If we have learned one thing from the leaks, it's that paranoia can't be classified as paranoia if the subject of the alleged paranoia turns out to be a fact. Extending on your argument, it should be equally impossible to hide backdoors in closed source, because it is always theoretically possible to reverse engineer and vet it. The origin of SELinux is suspicious enough to raise concern.

comment Lua loadstring, whitelisting against injection
@Oxinabox: why don't you use separate Lua states for separate purposes? You could for example make it impossible to load any external libs in one "sandbox" Lua state and use another one for the usual Lua business.

comment Adding self signed certificate to trusted store
@Chandan: basically it means that you create Sub-CAs, e.g. for certain periods of time or purposes (code-signing, SSL) to limit the impact if the cert gets compromised. The actual root CA cert would then be securely stashed somewhere.

For HTTP you can use httpry which is based on libpcap as well, but only focuses on HTTP traffic.

comment Do I really need an Anti-Virus software if I'm careful about where I browse?
My point is you don't need your condom, but it makes sense and provides an additional security net that can, however, fail. When you say you need something that's an absolute statement. And I hold that there is no such need. That's the difference between a requirement and a recommendation for me. And the OP clearly asked for a particular scenario, not for the run-of-the-mill computer use. Again, you can't buy security and if there would be a screencast/tutorial included in an AV subscription it'd be much more effective than the technology alone.

oh I think we just have a little problem as to why humanity still exists and the majority of children isn't born with STDs. All I am saying is that your comparison doesn't compute ;) ... at least for me. If it works for others, fine :)
