New release is ready, I will upload it soon.
I have promised 0.2 release, but let’s test this kernel first and give me some more time to implement several other features that I planned for v0.2. You can think of this release as v0.19999999.
As I have said before, focus of development for this release was getting the Grsecurity patch to Raspberry’s kernel.
What is Grsecurity?
The grsecurity kernel provides many security-related improvements. It hardens both the kernel and userspace against common memory corruption vulnerabilities, along with providing many miscellaneous features and a role-based access control system. It is the only way to secure the kernel itself against exploitation, which is the most important improvement for a system already making good use of user isolation, containers/chroots and sandboxes.
Thus is it cornerstone of fully secure and functional Peerbox.
Let me remind you Grsecurity patch was ported/fixed for Raspberry Pi by 0.5 BTC bounty. Prior to this Grsecurity did not work on Raspi.
After 2 weeks of testing the patch and tweaking kernel, now I can say it can be used.
This kernel, based on Rpi’s branch of linux 3.14.6 and patched with Grsecurity will be used for quite long time by Peerbox project.
So, please if you have time do install this pre-release and let’s test this kernel to confirm it’s stability.
Now I will focus on finishing v0.2 which is major milestone for this project.
Also, I’m happy I can finally say official website is under construction. :
