Madaidan recommends that you disable [unprivileged user namespaces](https://www.containerlabs.kubedaily.com/LXC/Linux%20Containers/User_namespaces.html) due to the [significant attack surface for privilege escalation](https://madaidans-insecurities.github.io/linux.html#kernel).

If you are using Kicksecure or Whonix, most of this hardening is included by default. If you are using Debian, you should consider [morphing it into Kicksecure](https://www.kicksecure.com/wiki/Debian). On other distributions, you can copy the [configuration files from Kicksecure](https://github.com/Kicksecure/security-misc/tree/master/usr/lib/sysctl.d) into `/etc/sysctl.d/` (but note that these configurations do not disable unprivileged user namespaces).

There are a few things in this config to keep in mind:
- Bluetooth is disabled. Comment out the `install bluetooth` and `install btusb` lines to use Bluetooth.
- Thunderbolt is disabled. Comment out the `install thunderbolt` line to use Thunderbolt devices.
- The `cdrom` and `sr_mod` modules are merely _blacklisted_ (can still be loaded at runtime with `modprobe`). If you have no intention to ever use CD&#8209;ROM devices, they should be _disabled_ by *un*commenting the respective `install` lines. ([More about how this works on the ArchWiki](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Kernel_module#Using_files_in_/etc/modprobe.d/_2))
- Apple filesystems are disabled. While generally fine on non&#8209;Apple systems, if you are using an Apple device you **must** check the filesystem of your EFI partition and comment out the relevant `install` line, otherwise your Linux install will not boot. For example, comment out the `install hfsplus` line if your ESP filesystem is HFS+.
