At the 2010 edition of the Linux Security Summit, Brad Spengler gave a presentation entitled "Linux Security in 10 years", outlining a set of goals that would impact Linux security in positive ways, based on his experience of having already accomplished most of the items via the grsecurity project. The goals were mostly designed around the concept of kernel self-protection, something Mr. Spengler has been involved in since 2003 and which the KSPP made part of its namesake.
