    Hardened kernel configuration optimized for virtual machines. - https://www.kicksecure.com/wiki/Hardened-kernel

    Those two don't protect the kernel itself from "misuse". To do that, there are ways like kernel hardening 3, using hardened kernel 4 5.

  • linux-hardened

    Minimal supplement to upstream Kernel Self Protection Project changes. Features already provided by SELinux + Yama and archs other than multiarch arm64 / x86_64 aren't in scope. Only tags have stable history. Shared IRC channel with KSPP: irc.libera.chat #linux-hardening

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

    Linux Kernel Runtime Guard

    I'm not an expert, but I can think of two things related to the integrity of Linux kernel. Linux has the ability to mark itself tainted 1 if you, as example, load proprietary drivers. On the other hand, there's Linux Kernel Runtime Guard (LKRG) 2 that performs integrity check on Linux kernel and detects exploits.
