LXer: Why Do We Need Specialist Security Distros?

Published at LXer:

Many popular distributions, community-oriented and otherwise, take security very seriously. They have dedicated security teams that go over individual packages before they're rolled into a final release. To make sure you don't have any loose ends, these distributions and many other individual Open Source projects also publish an endless stream of security advisories and updates. Add to this security mechanisms like SELinux, AppArmor, and the upcoming TOMOYO Linux, and SMACK, and you know they mean business. So what room does this leave for specialist security distros?
