Issue/Introduction

We attempted to implement SELinux on the databases without success. We found out Vertica does not support SELinux except when SELinux is running in permissive mode. Is there a plan to get SELinux supported as enforcing? This is a security vulnerability. 

Environment

Dx NetOps Performance Management any version

Resolution

Vertica only supports permissive mode per :

https://www.vertica.com/docs/10.1.x/HTML/Content/Authoring/InstallationGuide/BeforeYouInstall/SELinux.htm

There are currently no plans to support SElinux in enforcing mode by Vertica.
