    Hello Kristoffer,

    Both of the patches you mention are quite good, though I prefer
    GRSecurity. Being short and objective, is because GRSecurity
    includes all the features that LIDS can give you, plus a couple
    of other, quite interesting. Just to give an example, LIDS only
    detects a portscan, though with GRsecurity you can detect it and
    bogus the reply to make OS fingerprint more difficult (I won't
    say impossible).

    Still this is just my opnion, and you'll probably receive all
    kind of feedbacks from this list. Maybe if I were you I would
    try both of them and see which would suit me better.

    Good luck to you and your friends.
