Linux security modules

Linux security modules:

Hello everyone! I am doing a thesis about linux security modules (SELinux, Tomoyo, AppArmor). And now I have to do some practical work… I was thinking to create a few virtual machines and simulate an “hacking attack”, for each security module and by doing that I would get an information what are the weak sides and what are strong sides of each module… Now I am not really an expert and I don’t really know that much about all that, so I need help / guidance where to start, or is there a safe way to simulate an attack… Any piece of information would be extremely helpful… Thanks.

Possible pentadactyl replacement (tridactyl)

Possible pentadactyl replacement (tridactyl):

So I’ve been using the pentadactyl addon (vim-like keybinds/commands) on firefox for years, and as of a few months ago, it became too inconvenient to use older/custom versions of firefox just to keep that working.

But I just recently found an addon with a similar name called tridactyl, which seems to work very similarly. Just wanted to 1) get some discussion going about this addon, and 2) maybe get more information about it from those who have used it longer, or maybe know the developer.

It seems to be in beta now, and certain features are stated to be implemented later (like a proper / search). But if those things do get impolemented, I would consider this the closest replacement for pentadactyl thus far. Anyone else thinking the same?
