French Firms Aim To Beef Up Linux Security

A consortium of French Linux firms are poised to work on developing a highly secure Linux operating system for business, defense and government use.

The effort is being funded by the French Ministry of Defense, which chose Paris-based Linux vendor Mandrakesoft as the project leader. The other French companies include Bertin Technologies, Surlog, Oppida and Jaluna. The contract is a US$8.58 million, three-year deal.
