OpenBSD by Bryan Linton

OpenBSD is a free *nix-like operating system that focuses on security, correctness and developer freedom. With only two remote holes in the default install in over 10 years, OpenBSD has a reputation of being one of the most secure operating systems in common use.

This talk will present a basic overview of what OpenBSD is, and will heavily emphasize what its strengths are. It will also cover the various methods OpenBSD uses to remain secure.

With OpenBSD 5.1 arriving May 1st, we will also discuss some of its new features and improvements.

Many of us will go to the The Lucky Lab Northwest Beer Hall at 1945 NW Quimby after the presentation.
