  Description     : Make filesystems immutable

fsprotect ease the pain of protecting a system. By using an init script and
a initramfs script it can make the root and other filesystems immutable.
It uses aufs and tmpfs.

A typical admin only has to install fsprotect and add the 'fsprotect'
parameter to kernel to make the / immutable. She can also add a list of
filesystems to be protected in /etc/default/fsprotect.

This is a 'must' for all public computers like those in labs, libraries, etc.
