While security is important, it isn’t a high priority in this series (although we’ve gone through some options related to security).
You know what they say “There isn’t a 100% secure system”. You have to find the right balance between conveniency, usability and security otherwise you can easily render a system unusable if you beefed security up to an insane level.
I’d recommend (at least as a starting point) that you leave all options in this section excluded (or only include those required by other options).
Help: Select the security module that will be used by default if the kernel parameter security= is not specified.
Symbol: CONFIG_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DAC Help: There is no help available for this option. Type: boolean Choice: built-in (X) Reason: It's highly recommended that you include this option in your kernel (that is if it isn't already forcibly included as it's the only option available on many systems).
