Adamantix (also known as Trusted Debian) – a Linux distribution based on Debian and focused on tasks requiring increased security measures. The name of the distribution comes from the fictional substance Adamant, which has super strength.
Adamantix uses a robust and flexible access control system RSBAC instead of the standard UNIX, which is not able to protect the target system in the event of the superuser’s account being compromised.
Adamantix was the first distro with buffer overflow protection integrated into the kernel and compiler.
Adamantix presents a ready-made and easy-to-use security policy. To download and activate it requires only one team. After that, Adamantix works like a regular Unix-like operating system.
The Adamantix kernel was compiled with SSP, XFS, loop-AES support, a PaX protection patch was added, an MS (Malware Scan) module with ClamAV support, transparent proxy and MPPE, as well as a number of other options.
