OpenCON 2005 OpenBSD Slides

The OpenCON 2005 OpenBSD Slides are now available and linked to from When ever the OpenBSD people get together and present on security it’s worth ten minutes of the admins day to have a look for the new ideas, after all they’ll often appear ever where else over the next year.

The highlights of this batch include an overview of how the congestion indicator works and allows you to log in even when getting DoSed, the changes to the ports and package tools (which are moving to Perl!) and the whole of Theos Exploit Mitigation Techniques slides. Especially the Stackgap slide.

PS: MagicPoint needs to output HTML with access-keys defined. It’d make the slides a lot easier to read…
