Subject: Empirically testing the effectiveness of kernel hardening patches


Is there some sort of standard testbed for testing the effectivenss of a
kernel hardening patch to see how effective it is against current malware?
How does one go about this?

I assume when it comes to hardening the kernel the main target is certain
forms of privilege escalation. Is it possible to use Kali linux for this

Thanks in advance,
