The Linux Security Workgroup has put together this page in an effort to bring the Linux security community together in hardening the Linux Kernel and to help prevent duplication of efforts. There are a number of active Linux Kernel hardening projects and this page gives details on some of them.

Static Analysis

Coccinelle

Coccinelle is a tool for matching and fixing source code for C, C++, and other languages.
