 Improving Security with the Openwall Patch

Security Focus tells us about Openwall.

"This article will examine the Openwall Linux kernel Patch, one of the best-known kernel hardening patches. It will explain how to install the patch and will examine its main features. Using the patch will require a basic understanding of how to recompile the kernel. Some of the explanations will assume a basic knowledge of the C programming language, but it is not essential to the usage of the patch."
