Formilux is a very light and secure Linux distribution.
Version: 20060211Formilux is a very light and secure Linux distribution. It is targetted at internet servers, routers, firewalls and semi-embedded systems. Formilux requires a very limited administration but needs fairly skilled administrators.
Operating System: Linux
Installing a secured proxy or a firewall just requires about 12 MB and a few minutes. For this reason, we have long been using it for critical service recovery at customers'. Its main features are Zero Useless File (file-level dependencies), read-only file-system, centralized configuration, very strict default permissions, automatic boot recovery, protection against buffer overflows, and many more.
We haven't had time during the last 2 years to produce an updated image, but we have worked silently to satisfy constantly growing customer requirements. Now that the project is supported by EXOSEC, we'll have some time to release more often.
