Projects / LOMAC


LOMAC uses Low Water-Mark Mandatory Access Control to protect the integrity of processes and data from viruses, trojan horses, malicious remote users, and compromised network server daemons. The LOMAC loadable kernel module can be used to harden Linux systems without any changes to existing kernels, applications, or configuration files. Due to its simplicity, LOMAC itself requires no configuration, regardless of the users and applications present on the system. Although some features and fixes remain to be implemented, LOMAC presently provides sufficient protection to thwart some attacks, and is stable enough for everyday use.
