A few days ago a Norwegian company released a new Linux distribution with a strong focus on security. This probably ties in with the fact that the company delivers a Linux-based Firewall solution. But the distro looks interesting, and they're seeking developers...check it out: They've got a site for the distro and one for the company.

Normally I'd vote -1 on Linux distribution news, but it is very importent to make encryption a standard part of the distribution, so I'd like to see what peopl say about this one.

I don't care for the distro itself as it's a repackaged Red Hat, AFAICT. At least they have the right idea :-)

Please put more information in the writeup. I'd love to know more about this, but right now the writeup is no more informative than an advertising banner.

What makes trustix so great?

This is the "mission statement". What I thought was very interesting is the talk about encrypted file system, one time passwords, paging the sysadmin (SMS enabled syslogd?) and such things. It also mentions choosing the more secure package for the job, and their example is using a different MTA than sendmail. Hopefully this is a project that will grow and reach these goals. It would sure make it easier for me to secure a box if I had a distro with this focus.

Hopefully an OpenBSD type person will come out of the woodwork and tell us if this is secure/hardened or not...

I'm going to wager that the story keeps getting dumped because it is a steaming pile of badly formatted fool-meme.

A security focused distro is good, maybe it will make other distros look more carefully at their security. ;)
