A lot of progress has been made in the Linux kernel security in the last 10 years. Also, there are lot of things we could be doing better, and one could make the case that we have fallen behind the state of the art in a number of areas, including self-protection and hardening. Along with that there has been effort going on to improve the static/dynamic analysis to fix security issues. This talk aims at providing the overview of the work going on in the Linux kernel security including but not limited to secuirty modules, static/dynamic analysis tools, kernel self protection project etc.
