What is EFC?
EFC monitors the execution of a program by observing system
by the program. EFC generates a database for each program
its behavioral model. The moment request for execution of a
made, kernel also loads program's behavioral model into the memory.
Each request by a program is compared with model data base,
agrees with model it is permitted else program is killed.
EFC is a kernel module, and woks on Linux only.
Seems very interesting, but how does it affect
performance/stability of the system/kernel?
Absolutely nothing should be concluded from these figures except that
no conclusion can be drawn from them.
