grsecurity: Innovative security model for 2.4 and 2.6 Linux Kernels1

grsecurity is an innovative approach to security utilizing a multi-layered detection, prevention, and containment model. It offers among many other features:

- An intelligent and robust Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) system that can generate least privilege policies for your entire system with no configuration - Change root (chroot) hardening - /tmp race prevention - Extensive auditing - Prevention of entire classes of exploits related to address space bugs (from the PaX project) - Additional randomness in the TCP/IP stack - A restriction that allows a user to only view his/her processes - Every security alert or audit contains the IP address of the person that caused the event
