Maybe consider changing your major.

I think you need more specific question asking-fu, cuz "Linux AND security OR kernel" yields minimally 1 char too much for this buffer to hold.

Chat with your professor. One strategy might be to simply broaden your search slightly, and to refine your topic.

For example: I am quite sure that all of the computer security strategies that you may encounter will be implemented on Linux. Every one. And, on several other OSes as well, because interoperability is a fundamental requirement -- making all of the organization's disparate computers march together under a single drum-beat, and be managed by the same commanders. This, however, might produce a topic that is so enormous that it could not be adequately covered by a novel, let alone a research-paper. And, 'watered down' topics tend to earn 'watered down' grades.

However: You could shift to the opposite approach and become as specific as you can find yourself to be. Select a specific segment of the overall topic, such as "how to combat against stack-overflow attacks," and explore two ways how that topic has been implemented in the Linux operating system. Or, you could explore the subject of how to ensure authenticity of packages from vendors... specifically as implemented in the Linux operating system.

When doing a paper on a broad subject, and "computer security" is certainly a broad one, I find that narrowing the focus of the paper, as tightly as possible and then just a little bit more, is the best overall strategy for success. And you should bear this in mind when you are doing your research too, because the writers who came before you probably faced the same thing. There will be little, if any, computer-security strategies that are in any way specific to "Linux." Any that were, after all, would be too specialized to be very useful.

As Sundialsvcs put it most eloquently: you're asking for too much information.
If you're unable or unwilling to be more specific I suppose you should go to CVE (cve.mitre.org).

I am being as polite and as specific as I can be ... and I did not say what I said just to hear my fingers rattle against the keyboard.

None of us can really help it if you think that the two topics you mentioned are "well-defined." After all, it's not our paper and it's not our grade. Go ahead, by all means, find something and write some paper. This should take you about 0.24 google seconds and should produce "about 2,340,000 documents." Happy reading.

...and on that note I'd like to close this thread. Everything as been said.
