    This is the fourth and final installation of a four-part series devoted to the exploration of LIDS, a Linux kernel patch that will allow users to take away the all-powerful nature of root. The first article in this series offered an overview of LIDS. The second installment looked at file restrictions, LIDS File ACLs, and LIDS enhancements of Linux capabilities. Part three discussed granting capabilities, the LIDS-specific capabilities, ACL inheritance and time-based ACLs. This segment will explore LIDS log entries, using Ptrace, some troublesome issues with LIDS and a brief discussion of what users should be using LIDS to protect.
