TrouSerS 0.2.1 released

TrouSerS 0.2.1 Release Notes

For those upgrading from *any* previous version of TrouSerS: The format of the persistent storage file has changed. In order for the 0.2.1 tcsd to read your old persistent storage file correctly, you will need to run

# tools/ps_convert [filename]

on your system.data file. After running ps_convert, its safe to start the trousers-0.2.1 tcsd. Also provided in the tools directory is ps_inspect, which will print out your system.data file, regardless of its version. The ps_convert and ps_inspect utilities are not installed by default, they must be run from the tools directory.

Also included in this version of TrouSerS is support for SELinux on a Fedora Core 4 machine! Please see the README.selinux file for information on running TrouSerS in an SELinux environment. Not only will SELinux maintain better access control over the TrouSerS tcsd, but it enforces properties of the tcsd dictated by the TSS spec which cannot be enforced by non-SE Linux.
