    You won't find it in the app store as it is modifications to the kernel (+ user space tools).

    hi

    Not verified yet as i have not upgraded to the latest version on my Smartphones, but as far as i know, SeLinux has been integrated on Jelly Bean

    The N S A has released a special enhanced version last year, called SEAndroid

    If anyone is interested in playing with it...

    For a few dollars more, BizzTrust is an excellent solution with its Ying/Yang, Home/Office, Standard/Secured two Android system partitions

    Security risks begin when we use the smartphone as a replacement to the laptop/pc...as the old school says, a phone is phone and must be used just like a phone...
