Re: Grsecurity/Pax installation on Devuan GNU/Linux

Regarding a tiny comparison on Debian Forums at:
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php? … 59#p679387

I wrote:

So... It's still probably safer with the free grsec kernel (dappersec)... Sorely missing the protections from Meltdown and Spectre, but most other protectiions are in place. And pls. note that it's a dev from the KSPP team. Hardly biased towards grsec.

No, it's probably not... While I haven't sudied those in depth, it's probably the Meltdown and Spectre that are the most important to have countermeasures in your kernel against, and grsec/dappersec can't at this time, and there seem no interest from spender and PaX Team, the authors... and grsec/dappersec can't protect you from those...
I think I'm closing my engagement with what is left in the open FOSS world of grsecurity.
