I have plan to port only PaX (i.e mutual exclusive write/execute pages) for latest kernel (kernel.org) for x86_64 architectures. From other place I found patch from (https://git.m-privacy.de/linux-mprivacy-4.1.git) from branch 'paxonly' for 4.1 kernel. From the commit ID 9474667100c85c944a0d71ede82ef85e3ab502dc (123248 lines). In other place from https://grsecurity.net/download.php, I can see the patch 'grsecurity-3.1-4.8.12-201612062306.patch' . I don't' know where to start from these places. Please let me know about information on internals i.e. about code implementation and related documents of PaX ( i.e. mutual exclusive write/execute pages.). Also if want to do of porting PaX (i.e mutual exclusive write/execute pages) from scratch where can I find internals of it. Is that information from https://pax.grsecurity.net/ is enough idea for kick start. Please let me know the prerequisite knowledge on Linux subsystem like memory management before starting. Please let me know any openwall git repository is available. If you feel this not the correct place of asking, please advice where should I post. Thanks & Regards Manjunatha Srinivasan N
