    About: grsecurity is a set of security patches for Linux 2.4 that contain
    all the features of Openwall and HAP-Linux, among many other patches for
    2.2, and other OSes. It features the Openwall non-executable stack, PaX,
    the Oblivion ACL system, /proc restrictions, chroot restrictions, linking
    and FIFO restrictions, exec and set*id logging, secure file descriptors,
    trusted path execution, randomized IP IDs, randomized PIDs, randomized TCP
    source ports, altered ping ids, randomized TTL, better IP stack randomness,
    socket restrictions, fork-bomb protection, sysctl support on nearly all
    options, secure keymap loading, stealth networking enhancements, signal
    logging, failed fork logging, time change logging, and others. 
    Changes: Code to prevent fork bombing was implemented. The ACL code was
    updated. PaX was updated. Several bugs were fixed. This release is for use
    with versions 2.4.10 and 2.4.9 of the Linux kernel.
