We have a secure examination mode in Skolelinux-RLP, including iptables
setup and namespace protection for common writable directories for each
individual examinee account, delivery and collection of examination
material controlled by the teacher. Because of the namespace feature, we
have to use a kernel with different configuration than standard
Skolelinux provides, though.

The developer who has implemented this solution for Skolelinux-RLP is
Martin Öhler <oehler@knopper.net>, I'll send him a CC.
