At the moment, I'm familiarizing myself with SELinux yet. My server only works in my private network, so it is mainly secured against attacks from "the outside".
- a kernel, as small as possible, which provides support only for the things I really need and use
- a strict iptables-script
- fail2ban
- most services with connection to the outside run on non-standard ports
- things that are run as cronjobs, like clamav, chkrootkit, rkhunter, aide...
- I also take a look at iptstate -1 at least one time per day

But: what exactly are your problems? I am sure there is a way to fix this.

Best regards,
Jimini
