    Tuesday Nov 24 | Python

    It allows devices like the RaspberryPi, Beaglebone, or any machine with a TPM, Entropy Key, or other hardware random number generator onboard to act as a NetRNG server, providing high quality random data to other machines on the network. Virtual machines can potentially benefit the most from NetRNG, as they typically suffer from poor quality local entropy sources due to their running environment.

  3. u2k15: stsp@ on hackathon shirts, setup, UTF-8 and moreRead the original story

    Thursday Nov 12 | OpenBSD Journal

    OpenBSD hackathons without travel are pretty weird. Taking the train or bus to the hackroom in 30 minutes from home was quite a change from the usual 24+ hour trips around the planet.


  4. u2k15: jung@ on asmc(4), ports work, EFI testingRead the original story

    Monday Nov 9 | OpenBSD Journal

    The next report from the 2k15 hackathon comes from Joerg Jung , chronicling among other things the introduction of asmc : Arriving at u2k15 I had a rather large refactoring patch for asmc in my tree, which required some more tests. After finishing these I committed the changes, which fixed timing issues avoiding excessive tsleep() s and also fixed some 'comm collsion' errors.

    Sep 1, 2015 | OpenBSD Journal

    Contributed by pitrh on Tue Sep 1 19:27:21 2015 from the 4,000 holes in OpenSSL dept. The song is available in mp3 and ogg formats, with lyrics mainly about the LibreSSL story , but as the song notes point out, The pattern of LibreSSL development is a pattern that has repeated itself many times in OpenBSD -- a decision is made by a few people to do something, followed by action, and letting the world share it if they like it .

    Sep 1, 2015 | Everything Sysadmin

    Greg Lehey wrote an excellent review of The Practice of System and Network Administration in the new issue of The FreeBSD journal . Even though the book isn't FreeBSD-specific, I'm glad FJ was drawn to reviewing the book.

    Aug 11, 2015 | OpenBSD Journal

    This was my first OpenBSD Hackathon and it was a very pleasant and productive experience for me. I went to Calgary with two specific goals in mind.

  13. c2k15: pirofti@ on Octeon architecture progressRead the original story

    Jul 31, 2015 | OpenBSD Journal

    I arrived in Calgary with two projects in mind: writing an ACPI WMI driver and adding Flash driver support for the Octeon D-Link DSR-500 machine. This was obviously naive of me as I have not even started working on the former and barely managed to finish the later.


  14. Suhosin: How to harden your PHP web applicationRead the original story w/Photo

    May 22, 2015 | Network World

    PHP is a hugely popular programming language but poor coding can make your server as secure as a wet paper bag ... Suhosin is the solution The number of Internet servers that run the PHP language is incredible: According to Netcraft , as of January, 2012, something around 244,000,000 web sites were running PHP and according to a May, 2015, survey by W3Techs "PHP is used by 81.9% of all websites whose server-side programming language we know." Bottom line: PHP rules.
