Hardening App of the Year
 
What do you use to lock down your system?

OmegaBlac 12-31-2004 02:32 PM

What about RSBAC? Voted for SELinux as its improving at a nice rate.

I just use what I learned from u folks here....The old fashioned way (manually)

"Locking something down" is the equivalent of saying "tightening security"

I'm not sure I use any of these, but now I have another list of apps to check out.

I think SELinux is wonderful.

predator.hawk 01-04-2005 02:30 PM

I use my -sk patchset, but since openwall (or -sk :P) isn't up there, grsec is the next best.

SElinux is good.

rm -rf isn't an option too bad.
Provides me with a nice comforty feeling

SciYro 01-18-2005 01:54 AM

zatriz: yes, but with "rm -fvr" that comforty feeling goes away as you see all your docs you forgot to backup being deleted

but i chose RSBAC , actualy i use rsbac-dev-sources from gentoo, includes RSBAC, PAX, some tcp stealth/nmap patch .. and i think a few others ... also use -fstack-protector as a CFLAG and programs start crashing if theres a possible stack problem

but i would vote for RSBAC, as it gives me the ability to use nmap to its fullest when im not root
