Ensure SELinux is not disabled in bootloader configuration - enforcing=0


Configure SELINUX to be enabled at boot time and verify that it has not been overwritten by the grub boot parameters.

Note: This recommendation is designed around the grub bootloader, if LILO or another bootloader is in use in your environment enact equivalent settings.


SELinux must be enabled at boot time in your grub configuration to ensure that the controls it provides are not overridden.


Edit /boot/grub/grub.conf, or on UEFI systems edit /boot/efi/EFI/*/grub.conf, and remove all instances of selinux=0 and enforcing=0 on all kernel lines.
