PALO ALTO, Calif. – November 1, 2023 – TuxCare, a global innovator in enterprise-grade cybersecurity for Linux, today announced it now offers Extended Lifecycle Support (ELS) for CentOS Stream 8, which reaches end of life on May 31, 2024.

The TuxCare ELS offering for CentOS Stream 8 includes:


  • Patches for high and critical-risk vulnerabilities (with a CVSS score of 7 or higher) to ensure the security and compliance of CentOS Stream 8 systems beyond the EOL date
  • Support for a comprehensive list of essential server packages enabling maximum OS security
  • Flexibility to support custom packages requested by customers
  • Qualified errata advisories to track security updates, selected bug fixes, and affected packages across all architectures
  • OVAL patch definitions to allow verification of the CentOS Stream system update status using OpenSCAP or other OVAL-compatible tools


“We are pleased to serve as the go-to source for organizations that need to ensure their CentOS-certified applications remain secure, stable and fully operational until they are ready to move on,” said Michael Canavan, Chief Revenue Officer at TuxCare. “We make sure the process is simple and cost effective.”
