I am a LiveCD enthusiast who has been using kanotix, knoppix (since
its 3.8 version ;-)) and FreesBIE and I have been minding for some
time about using liveCD's as full blown servers
There is little and spotty information on this. yeah! you could
certainly run apache right off your knoppix distro, but is this the
way you would actually run your server?
Very little is mentioned, if at all, about OS hardening and
protection such as what you could achieve with open source grsecurity,
SELinux, PAX, ...
You find basically nothing here:
and in his latest (very superficial book)
(Amazon.com product link shortened)/
"Live Linux(R) CDs: Building and Customizing Bootables", Christopher
Negus doesn't say anything about it
Having something like a base-line sever liveCD that would let you
easily customize/remaster the rest to your liking would be superb!
Probably there is something I am missing here, but I think running
your OS and the application stack from a live CD would be great, among
others, for security, manageability and versioning
Any ideas, good links your know of?
