Papillon is a security module designed for the Solaris Operating Environment. It provides security mechanisms and protections that improve the overall security of the system by adding new functionality to the kernel such as a restricted proc, chroot environment protections, secure STDIO file descriptors, restricted symlinks in /tmp, setuid protections, and more. In the current version Papillon supports Solaris (8, 9, and 10) and OpenSolaris running on x86 and SPARC architectures in 32- or 64-bit mode.

Owl (Openwall GNU/*/Linux) is a small security-enhanced Linux distribution for servers. Owl also makes a good base system for customized virtual machine images and embedded systems, and Owl live CDs with remote SSH access are good for recovering or installing systems (whether with Owl or not). A single Owl CD includes the full live system, installable packages, the installer program, as well as full source code and the build environment capable of rebuilding the entire system from source. Owl supports multiple architectures (x86, x86-64, SPARC, and Alpha) and offers some compatibility for packages developed for other Linux distributions. The primary approaches to security are proactive source code review, privilege reduction, privilege separation, careful selection of third-party software, safe defaults, and "hardening" to reduce the likelihood of successful exploitation of security flaws.

BG-Rescue Linux is a Busybox and uClibc-based rescue system with a 2.4 series Linux kernel. It supports full read/write support for NTFS using ntfs-3g. It is loaded from two floppy disks, a bootable CD-Rom, or a USB Stick. The system runs entirely in RAM. It supports a wide range of hardware (including SATA and DM/LVM2) and filesystems (including ext2/3, hfs/hfs+, and xfs) and can serve as a full backup/restore system for MS Windows systems which use FAT12/16/32 or NTFS. It also includes many utilities, including strong compresstion tools like lrzip. Automatic loading of the antivirus-program F-Prot from cdrom or usbstick is supported.

Tin Hat is a Linux distribution derived from hardened Gentoo. It aims to provide a very secure, stable, and fast desktop environment that lives purely in RAM. Tin Hat boots from CD, or optionally USB pen drive, but it is not a LiveCD in that it does not mount any file system from the boot device. Rather, Tin Hat employs a massive squashfs image which expands into tmpfs upon booting. This makes for long boot times, but remarkable speeds during human-computer interaction.
