Writes Ameet Chaubal of UnixReview, "Linux Intrusion Detection System (LIDS) is written by Xie Huagang and Philippe Biondi and is available for download at: http://www.lids.org. It is a kernel patch and administrator tool that provides file protection, process protection, kernel-based port scan detection, and the ability to seal the kernel so that no one (including root) can insert modules into it or access special devices (such as memory and I/O)."

    LIDS is a great solution for those requiring a high degree of security. The EnGarde Secure Linux distribution features LIDS as a core component, as well as many other security features. More information on EnGarde at http://www.engardelinux.org
