I have built some kernel packages for RSBAC and put them online on
Please check them out, if people think that they are OK then I'll upload them.
I don't want to maintain these packages long-term as I have no plans to use
RSBAC. After getting through the configuration phase I decided that I don't
like it as much as SE Linux, grsec, and OpenWall.
The packages on my site work well enough to produce a kernel package with
make-kpkg. I have not tried booting from such a package as I don't have the
user-space tools (or the time to spare).
Even though I don't plan to use RSBAC myself I think it's a worthy thing to
have in Debian, so I'm happy to maintain the kernel packages for a while
(sans proper testing) to help kick-start the Debian/RSBAC project.
