Interesting set of slides showing what lengths OpenBSD does on top of their code auditing efforts they put into securing their operating system.
Very impressive and looks like it would make over flow buffers exploits a thing of the past, and badly written programs get exposed quickly as part of the process.
Stuff like this is why OpenBSD has the best security record of any OS available to the average person. They are a bit behind in terms of new software and hardware support, and SMP support is near non-existent. But if you need a secure machine it's hard to go wrong with OpenBSD.
Got something to add? Send me email.
