Security Projects For those few who don't know yet, Openwall GNU/*/Linux (or Owl) is a security-enhanced operating system with Linux and GNU software as its core, intended as a server platform. After many Owl-current snapshots, Owl 2.0 release is finally out.

Owl 2.0 is built around Linux kernel 2.4.32-ow1, glibc 2.3.6 (with our security enhancements), gcc 3.4.5, and recent versions of over 100 other packages. It offers binary- and package-level compatibility for most packages intended for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (RHEL4) and Fedora Core 3 (FC3), as well as for many FC4 packages.

Additionally, Owl 2.0 uses our new installer, making installation a lot easier than it used to be for Owl 1.1 and below.
