    Computer Associates has contributed a significant piece of widgetry it calls K-Gem to the Linux kernel that should put Linux in the running for B1 security clearance by "hardening" it.

    K-Gem, short for Kernel General Event Module, will also simplify the lives of other ISVs by curing the "hooking nightmare" that has haunted Linux, according CA Linux chief Sam Greenblatt.

    Linux developers will no longer have to intrude on the kernel and modify it to accomplish something as seemingly basic as event notification.
