SELinux Policy Editor (SEEdit) is a tool to make SELinux policies easy to apply. It was originally developed by Hitachi Software.

A screenshot of the GUI SEEdit uses something called a Simplified Policy. This is described by the Simplified Policy Description Language (SPDL). It uses simple name-based configration and reduces the number of permissions required to get everything working.

SEEdit has a graphical interface to generate Simplified Policies. This means that adminstrators do not have to remember syntax of the language. Command line tools are also included in the package.

You can try SELinux Policy Editor on Fedora Core 6,7,8 or CentOS 4, Cent OS5.  It will not affect existing SELinux policies so it is possible to revert to the default settings easily.
