<br>Hash: SHA1<br><br>&gt; &lt;snip&gt;<br>&gt;<br>&gt;&gt; Nick[1] made a post about minimizing Gentoo a while back.<br>&gt;&gt; But that topic was mainly about the disk usage.<br>&gt;&gt; I suppose you would benefit from a system that uses the -Os flag to
<br>Another useful approach is to use a custom disk image with just busybox<br>+ the software to run/test.<br><br>&gt; Would a server in a VM actually be more secure than a server in a<br>&gt; &quot;hardened&quot; chroot jail?
<br>IMO yes, but since you can have both...<br><br>&gt; (though I'd guess that a hardened system would be the best basis for a<br>&gt; server, VM or chroot; and the logical placement of a VM would be within<br>&gt; a chroot jail?).
<br>A properly configured VM running in a hardened chroot is going to be<br>(almost) impossible to escape.<br><br>Note you can also contain your VMs with SELinux (both inside and out).<br>I've posted some pages on how to do this with UML here:
