Description:

What is TAINTED KERNEL and what needs to be done to run CA Access Control without the TAINTED KERNEL flag?

Solution:

Any kernel code that is built from non-open source or free software is tagged as tainted.

From a CA Access Control standpoint there is nothing that can be done to change it, as the OS is the source.
