This contribution describes how Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is enabled on a Nokia 770 Internet Tablet. It will refer to a procedure done under a Debian [1] Testing (Etch) Environment.

An SELinux enabled device will provide the possibility of a convenient configuration of the device. Different stakeholders can define
