Example text

There isn’t one. The management is you. Many commercial operating systems conceal their inner workings, and the only access you get is through the programs, application programming interfaces (APIs), and application binary interfaces (ABIs) they provide. If you want to learn more about how your operating system works, you can’t (unless you reverse-engineer it). When something breaks, you either live with it or pay the vendor to solve the problem. OpenBSD, on the other hand, is completely open. You can view the source code, the compiler, and the resulting binaries.

Html. This includes lists in languages other than English. One unofficial list, run by an OpenBSD developer, is the PF mailing list, for users of the OpenBSD packet filter. This list is for all PF packet filter users, not only OpenBSD, but OpenBSD users dominate the list. If you want to learn more about PF, subscribe to this list. cx/. org looks like the mailing list for you, and you subscribe. If you race ahead and ask all your questions, you’ll immediately accomplish a couple things: You’ll alienate the community, and you’ll be told to shut up and go away; you certainly won’t make friends.

And that brings us to OpenBSD’s most wellknown claim to fame. Security OpenBSD strives to be the most secure operating system in the world. While it can reasonably make that claim today, maintaining that position requires constant effort. Intruders constantly try new ways to penetrate computers, which means that today’s feature might be tomorrow’s security problem. As OpenBSD developers learn of new classes of programming errors and security holes, they scan the entire source tree for that type of problem and make fixes before anyone even knows how these issues might be exploited.
