Hi all,

There is a new reference for CON 6.0 "secure integrity verification of 
binaries before loading them":    
http://sourceforge.net/projects/disec/, the digsig-0.2 package.  We 
implemented a kernel module using LSM hooks for 2.5.66 and higher which 
verifies signature of a binary before running it. The main goal is to 
insert digital signatures inside the ELF binary
and verify this signature before loading the binary.

The documentation is not yet complete. I tried to put every thing in 
Readme which is definitely not enough. However, I believe from the 
feedback I had till now, it is enough to understand and run the code. We 
currently work on the documentation and also add new improvements on 
crypto side. 

As always, we'll appreciate your feedback.


Ps. the latest README file on the cvs has more performance measurements 
on it. For interested people send me an email and I send you the latest 
README (or cvs check out or browse the cvs tree from source forge).
