Novell has announced that it has released AppArmor as free software. AppArmor was developed by Immunix (which was acquired by Novell); it is a Linux security module which can be used to precisely control what specific applications can do. It looks somewhat similar to SELinux, but simpler and less ambitious in scope. The OpenSUSE AppArmor detail page has more information, including an example configuration file.
