    Linux developers have begun an ambitious project to identify security problems with the open source operating system before they trouble end users. The Linux Kernel Auditing Project is an attempt to audit the Linux kernel for any security holes. The project also aims to educate Linux developers on how to write code securely and thereby stay ahead of crackers in creating a secure operating environment.

    Bryan Paxton, who wrote the mission statement for the project, said it was time for a security audit of the Linux kernel and that the process would result in more secure operating system for end users.
