About LIDS


  • A kernel patch and admin tool to enhance the linux kernel security
  • Implementation of reference monitor in kernel
  • Mandatory Access Control in the kernel
  • An active project with many helpful hackers.

I ended up researching security on Linux and I ended up here. I also looked at SELinux(NSA) and Owl(Openwall). Since I have a somewhat old copy of Redhat 7.2 I have been planning on installing, LIDS sounds the most interesting from a server fixup standpoint. Now if I can ever get started with the Linux install!
