Security system that implements a detection/prevention/containment strategy
'grsecurity' is a complete security system for Linux 2.4 that implements a detection/prevention/containment strategy. It prevents most forms of address space modification, confines programs with least privilege via its process-based ACL system, hardens syscalls, and provides many of the OpenBSD randomness features. It has auditing capabilities and a netfilter module designed to thwart portscans and OS fingerprinting.
