title: 'Hardened Linux kernel sources removal'
As you may know the core of
has been the grsecurity patches. Recently the grsecurity developers have
[decided to limit access to these patches](https://grsecurity.net/passing_the_baton.php).
As a result, the Gentoo Hardened team is unable to ensure a regular
patching schedule and therefore the security of the users of these
kernel sources. Thus, we will be masking hardened-sources on the 27th of
August and will proceed to remove them from the main ebuild repository by the end of
September. We recommend to use
instead. Userspace hardening and support for SELinux will of course
remain in the Gentoo ebuild repository. Please see
