AppArmor is an application security tool designed to provide a highly secure yet easy to use security framework for your applications. It proactively protects the operating system and applications from external or internal threats, even zero-day attacks, by enforcing good behavior and preventing even unknown application flaws from being exploited. Its security policies, called "profiles", completely define what system resources individual applications can access, and with what privileges. A number of default profiles are included, and using a combination of advanced static analysis and learning-based tools, profiles for even very complex applications can be deployed successfully in a matter of hours.
