Review : Engarde Secure Linux

Filed under
Linux
Reviews

There are hundreds of Linux distributions targeting a diverse sets of users. While quite a number of these Linux distributions - especially the main stream ones - position themselves as a universal solution to all your Linux expectations, there are some of them which take a specialist role of one form or other, catering to a specific set of Linux users.

One such specialized Linux distribution which is targeted specifically at servers is the Engrade Secure Linux. As the name indicates, this Linux distribution lays stress on the security aspect because servers should by default be secure out of the box. And Engarde Secure Linux goes the extra length and pulls all stops to make sure the server is indeed secure. More on that later.

Installation of Engarde Secure Linux is as such, a trouble free affair and is achieved via its text based installer. On the other hand if you are just interested in trying it out, that is also possible because the ISO also functions as a LiveCD and you can try out all the features that Engarde has to offer without installing it on your hard disk.
