Microsoft published this week details about a new project the company has been working for the Linux kernel. Named Integrity Policy Enforcement — or IPE — the project is a Linux security module (LSM). LSMs are optional add-ons for the Linux kernel that enable additional security features. According to a documentation page published on Monday, IPE is Microsoft’s attempt to solve the code integrity problem for Linux — an operating system the company broadly uses in its Azure cloud service.
