Was going through Gentoo Linux Documentation and came across Libata Framework. Couldn’t find much information after a search. So would like to know if any one can throw some light on what is Libata and how it is unique or different from a security standpoint
As I understand it, I think you’re correct, in that they used the term ‘framework’ rather loosely / vaguely / incorrectly. It appears to actually be the libraries / API’s for getting the proper ATA drivers functional, within the kernel.
This is based on / since, even in the context of the Gentoo docs, they were referring to storage drivers, etc. So I just looked on libata, by itself, and that’s the impression I came away with.
Hope it helps.
