Subject: Linux-specific kernel hardening


The work of improving the Linux kernel's security is, of course,
and endless task. While many of the new features come through on the list[1], there is a stated desire
to avoid "maintenance" topics[2] on the list, and that isn't compatible
with the on-going work done within the upstream Linux kernel development
community, which may need to discuss the nuances of performing that work.

As such there is now a new list,[3],
which will take kernel-hardening's place in the Linux MAINTAINERS
file. New topics and on-going work will be discussed there, and I urge
anyone interested in Linux kernel hardening to join the new list. It's
my intention that all future upstream work can be CCed there, following
the standard conventions of the Linux development model, for better or
worse. ;)

For anyone discussing new topics or ideas, please continue to CC
kernel-hardening too, as there will likely be many people only subscribed
there. Hopefully this will get the desired split of topics between the
two lists.

Thanks and take care,





Kees Cook
