Linux developers hunt for kernel bugs

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.
