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.

Choosing the right router for each client
Max's Fanno Creek Brew Pub

Choosing the right router for each client

Routers, we've all got them. We install them. How do we choose the right one? How do we balance security and price for different clients? Routers have many features which are useful in some situations but worthless in others. How do we match our client needs to the right router?

Christian Martin will lead a discussion of the various features of the routers we install and how well they work. We will discuss which routers actually have particular features and how difficult it is to use them. We hope to utilize the experiences of everyone in attendance. Members who have knowledge of Asus, Meraki, Netgear, SonicWall, Ubiquiti, and Uplevel Systems routers will share their experiences to get things started.

We will cover:
+ Maintenance and updating How is it managed, frequency of updates, are updates automated
+ Remote Access What options are available; VPN Client (IPSec, L2TP, SSL), Site-to-site
+ Advanced features DPI, DPI SSL, Content Filtering, configurable ports, QoS, VLANs
+ Performance Real-world throughput you can expect with and without advanced features enabled

If you will help us by sharing your experience with some routers, please come prepared with the model number, so we correctly identify the router with the features we talk about.
