More Adventures in Kernel Security

Filed under
Linux

As promised, I took my own advice and started playing around with some of the improved kernel modules that I wrote about in a previous article. As the title of this month’s article implies, getting to use the new kernel was an adventure in and of itself. My kernel module of choice for this exercise was grsecurity.

I wanted to use the latest kernel patch and needed a platform on which to try it. After searching around for a Linux distribution that was built on the most recent kernel, I settled on the latest Rubix distribution. Rubix is a distribution maintained by Joshua Rubin, who intended this to be a "Slackware-like, stable and supported distribution" with added security.

Full Story.
