I have been looking for a project to learn (figure out) how to build
a secure portal on a gentoo-hardened server. I posting here so folks
can look at the general approach I'm going to take, and make some
better, corrective suggestions on this endeavor (learning excursion)?

So here is the plane.

Use the lilblue [1] or hardened-gentoo with glibc on top of btrfs
and use virtual box to set up several application. This software is
not multiuser. So I'm hoping to be able to allow one user to lock
and use a single instance to post a enough entries to frame a problem
of support question. I then want any number of folks to be able to
"view" the posing and then use the discussion group to make suggestions
as to the problem. Since there are many different (stable) version of
gnucash, I'm going to try to first install several different versions
of gnu cash so folks can post their problem on a version similar to what 
they have.

The purpose of this excursion is to learn how to build a secure portal,
to learn how to set up VMs on btrfs and to become consistently competent
with gentoo-hardened.

I'm going to attempt to set up 12 instances of various version
of gnucash. [2]

Maybe I should use antoher code in lieu of gnucash?  Suggestions in
hardened, security, web server etc etc are most welcome. Ultimately,
my goal is to be able to take various codes and build a secure
portal, with hundreds or thousands of sandboxed/jailed/VMed cell
that are secure with differ codes and eventually even different
OSes inside the cells on a gentoo-hardened platform.

All comments are welcome.
