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

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

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
