Ubuntu 16.10 SELinux HVM


This version has been removed and is no longer available to new customers.

Product Overview

This Ubunutu version 16.10 (code name Yakkety) is a minimal server version with SELinux enabled and enforcing, designed to run state-of-the-art applications, stabily and securely. The AMI runs on Ubuntu's latest 4.8 kernel which includes important BTRFS and XFS storage enhancements, hardened usercopy protection, unified EXT4 encryption code, and more. Perhaps more importantly, this is the only SELinux enabled and enforcing Ubuntu in AWS Marketplace. It has an ec2-user user context, and seboolean settings and policies for cron, ssh, sudo and scp. Minimal policy and seboolean settings means you start with a secure image and loosen, as needed. It is built as a Hardware Virtualized Machine (HVM), cloud-init bootstrapped, 64 bit operating system. It uses ec2-user and not ubuntu as the initial login, enabling easier management with non-Ubuntu AMI. Apparmor is not a replacement for SELinux. If you are running Ubuntu in AWS, this AMI delivers unrivaled security to your deployments.
