comment Linux hardening - web servers
if you're in need to virtualize lots of things, or short on cash/hardware. Jails+nullfs mounts can circumvent that problem. and since jails aren't virtualized or emulated there is no overhead at all. I guess vserver is the next best thing on GNU/Linux.

@David : Yeah, with mentioning tripwire I kind of implied aide, I'll add an aide link just in case. I'll also add the vserver suggestion. Yes, virtualisation and/or paravirtualization are going to be better than chroot, which is also why I mentioned FreeBSD jails. One thing with virtual machines though is that having to replicate the userland+required tools for each vm is going to eat a lot of extra disk space, which can be an issue
