Kernel Security Projects

Access Control

  • AppArmor, a pathname-based access control system.
  • SMACK, the Simplified Mandatory Access Control Kernel for Linux.


Integrity

This is a rapidly developing area, see the following LWN article for an overview:


Networking

There are several separately maintained projects relating to network security, including:

  • Labeled Networking, including NetLabel, CIPSO, Labeled IPsec and SECMARK, see Paul Moore's blog.


Storage

  • Labeled NFS, a project to add MAC labeling support to the NFSv4 protocol.


Anti-Malware

There are several related works-in-progress in this area:


Crypto

The cryptographic subsystem is maintained separately by Herbert Xu, refer to the mailing list.
