    Module Writing Question.


    Hello,

    I am currently working on a Manageable Security System for Linux.
    Anyway, currently my program works as a Daemon, however I want to port it to the Kernel as a Module. Since I want to add stuff like StackProtection and socket/filesystem protection.
    However I never coded a Module for Linux from Scratch and thus I want to do some reading.

    What book / Documentation do you guys recommend for me to read?

    Thanks

    Cheers,
    Robin
