Two years ago I published a table
of Vulnerability and
threat mitigation features in Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora. Now that
we've released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, it's time to update the table. Thanks
to Eugene Teo for collating this information.
Between releases there are lots of changes made to improve security and we've not
listed everything; just a high-level overview of the things we think are most
interesting that help mitigate security risk. We could go into much more
detail, breaking out the number of daemons covered by the SELinux default
policy, the number of binaries compiled PIE, and so on.
Note that this table is for the most common architectures, x86 and x86_64 only; other supported architectures may vary.
