Grsecurity + RSBAC??

Postby konst » Sat Oct 22, 2011 11:38 am

Is this legit? Some guy merged grsecurity (including PaX) and RSBAC.

Link is http://dev.gentoo.org/~blueness
It's from the Gentoo overlay blueness.
I think it's the same guy who maintains the hardened kernel sources for Gentoo.
In past forum messages Brad said RSBAC runs slow but that was a few years ago. Anyone have any experience with it and what can RSBAC offer combined with grsecurity?

of course he's 'legit' ;), but where did you see RSBAC on that page at all, let alone it being merged with grsec? (and yes, RSBAC can be used with PaX, i think Amon Ott still maintains such kernels)

Hello, there are different ebuilds[1] that use different patchsets [2][3] to install the source for each project. Blueness just used to track both patches together in git.
