HyperbolaBSD: Az FSF által elfogadott Hyperbola GNU/Linux forkolja az OpenBSD-t


Az FSF által elfogadott Hyperbola GNU/Linux projekt bejelentette, hogy forkolja az OpenBSD-t, létrehozva a HyperbolaBSD-t.

Due to the Linux kernel rapidly proceeding down an unstable path, we are planning on implementing a completely new OS derived from several BSD implementations.

This was not an easy decision to make, but we wish to use our time and resources to create a viable alternative to the current operating system trends which are actively seeking to undermine user choice and freedom.

This will not be a "distro", but a hard fork of the OpenBSD kernel and userspace including new code written under GPLv3 and LGPLv3 to replace GPL-incompatible parts and non-free ones.

U2F támogatás az OpenSSH HEAD ágában


As of this morning, OpenSSH now has experimental U2F/FIDO support, [...] If you're not familiar with U2F, this is an open standard for making inexpensive hardware security tokens. These are easily the cheapest way for users to get a hardware-backed keypair and there is a good range of vendors who sell them including Yubico, Feitian, Thetis and Kensington. Hardware-backed keys offer the benefit of being considerably more difficult to steal - an attacker typically has to steal the physical token (or at least persistent access to it) in order to steal the key.

A kínai Smartisan az OpenBSD legnagyobb szponzora 2019-ben is (eddig)


2016 és 2017 után idén is a kínai Smartisan lett az OpenBSD projekt első Iridium szintű szponzora. A szórakoztató elektronikával és online szolgáltatásokkal foglalkozó vállalat 380 ezer kanadai dollárral (~ 81 millió forint) járul hozzá az OpenBSD projekt idei működéséhez. Ez minden idők legnagyobb adománya, amit a The OpenBSD Foundation kapott.
