  1. 1. ALL ABOUT “OPENBSD” BSIT 3Y2-3 Members: Elago, Regine A. Dalisay, Yvonne T. Joseph, Denberg C. Tanagras, Roanne Marie S. Tomines, Francis Karl Dale B.
  2. 2. WHAT IS OPEN BSD? • OpenBSD is a Unix-like computer operating system descended from Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD), a Unix derivative developed at the University of California, Berkeley. • It was forked from NetBSD by project leader Theo de Raadt in late 1995, coordinated his home in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. •Produced portable versions of numerous subsystems, most notably PF, OpenSSH and OpenNTPD, which are very widely available as packages in other operating systems. •Emphasizes portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography.
  3. 3. • Developed entirely by volunteers. The project's development environment and developer events are funded through contributions collected by The OpenBSD Foundation. • This project produces a free, multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system. • Freely available from our FTP/HTTP sites or a 3-CDs set. • The current release is OpenBSD 5.4 which was released Nov 1, 2013. • Its website is WHAT IS OPEN BSD?
  4. 4. OPENBSD RUNS ON FOLLOWING PLATFORMS: • Alpha (Digital Alpha-based System) • amd64 (AMD64-based System) • armv7 (ARM based appliances) • hp300 (Hewlett-Packard HP9000 series 300 and 400 workstation) • hppa (Hewlett Packard Percision Architect System) • i386
  5. 5. LOGO Its logo and mascot is a pufferfish named Puffy.
  6. 6. HISTORY • In December 1994, NetBSD co-founder Theo de Raadt was asked to resign from his position as a senior developer and member of the NetBSD core team. • In October 1995, de Raadt founded OpenBSD, a new project forked from NetBSD 1.0. The initial release. • OpenBSD 1.2, was made in July 1996, followed in October of the same year by OpenBSD 2.0. Since then, the project has followed a schedule of a release every six months, each of which is maintained and supported for one year. • In September 2005, the nascent BSD Certification Group performed a usage survey which revealed that 32.8% of BSD users (1420 of 4330 respondents) were using OpenBSD, placing it second of the four major BSD variants, behind FreeBSD with 77% and ahead of NetBSD with 16.3%
  7. 7. • On 25 July 2007, OpenBSD developer Bob Beck announced the formation of the OpenBSD Foundation, a Canadian not-for-profit corporation formed to "act as a single point of contact for persons and organizations requiring a legal entity to deal with when they wish to support OpenBSD." • The latest release, OpenBSD 5.4, appeared on 1 Nov 2013.

  12. 12. FEATURES • OpenBSD includes a number of security features in which developers audit the source code for software bugs and security problems. • As with most other BSD-based operating systems, the OpenBSD kernel and userland programs, and common tools like cat and ps, are developed together in one source code repository. • The OpenBSD project maintains ports for 20 different hardware platforms.
  13. 13. USES • Security OpenBSD's security enhancements, built-in cryptography and the pf packet filter suit it for use in the security industry, for example on firewalls, intrusion- detection systems and VPN gateways.
  14. 14. • Desktop OpenBSD ships with the X window system and is suitable for use on the desktop. Packages for popular desktop tools are available, including desktop environments GNOME, KDE, and Xfce; web browsers Konqueror, Mozilla Firefox and Chromium; and multimedia programs MPlayer, VLC media player and xine. USES
  15. 15. • Server OpenBSD features a full server suite and is easily configured as a mail server, web server, ftp server, DNS server, router, firewall, or NFS file server. USES
  16. 16. VERSIONS The following is a summary of the release history of the OpenBSD operating system: 1.1: October 18, 1995 • OpenBSD CVS repository created by Theo de Raadt. • While the version number used at this stage was 1.1 (cf. the release history of NetBSD, which OpenBSD branched from), OpenBSD 1.1 was not an official OpenBSD release in the sense which this term subsequently came to be used in. 1.2: July 1, 1996 • As before, while this version number was used in the early development of the OS, OpenBSD 1.2 was not an official release in the subsequently applicable sense. • Creation of the intro(9) man page, for documenting kernel internals. • Integration of the update(8) command into the kernel.
  17. 17. 2.0: October 1, 1996 • the first official release of OpenBSD, and also the point at which XFree86 first recognised OpenBSD as separate from NetBSD • initial integration of the FreeBSD ports system • replacement of gawk with the AT&T awk 2.1: June 1, 1997 • replacement of the older sh with pdksh 2.2: December 1, 1997 • addition of the afterboot(8) man page 2.3: May 19, 1998 • Introduced the haloed daemon, or aureola beastie, in head-only form created by Erick Green.

VERSIONS
  22. 22. DISADVANTAGES • It lacks the support for devices that Linux has. The wealth of software available for it isn't as large as Linux, though many Linux applications will work in *BSD out of the box. • It isn't as newbie-friendly as other operating systems, such as Windows, OS X, or Linux distros such as Ubuntu. • OpenBSD has virtual firewalls. Using this is like accepting the risk of using virtual machine. In this case if your virtual machine system is not stronger than OpenBSD, we should not use it. If one can exploit virtual machine he/she can hurt your platform.
