"This book works in tandem with the OpenBSD's manual pages. As a
result, it will help many users grow and get the most from the
system."--Theo de Raadt, OpenBSD project leader.
"The OpenBSD system intimidates many administrators who would
benefit from using it. This book lets people start much higher up
on the curve. Secure Architectures with OpenBSD not only presents
the hows, but also shows some of the whys that only insiders
know.""--Mike Frantzen, NFR Security "
""Secure Architectures with OpenBSD" explains all of the tasks
an administrator has to know about to successfully maintain an
OpenBSD server. It helps the reader save time by condensing the
vast amount of information available in man pages into a compact
form, reducing unneeded information, and explaining other things in
much more detail and prose than a man page can afford.""--Daniel
Hartmeier, the OpenBSD Project "
"This book will become the de facto text for OpenBSD
administration. Unix and BSD books abound, but none cover OpenBSD
with the clarity and expertise of Palmer and Nazario. They explain
the optimal way to configure and administer your OpenBSD machines,
with a keen eye to security at all stages.""--Brian Hatch, coauthor
of "Hacking Exposed Linux "and" Building Linux Virtual Private
Descended from BSD, OpenBSD is a popular choice for those who
demand stability and security from their operating system. No code
goes into OpenBSD without first undergoing a rigorous security
check, making it a terrific choice for Web servers, VPNs, and
"Secure Architectures with OpenBSD" is the insider's guide to
building secure systems using OpenBSD. Written by Brandon Palmer
and Jose Nazario, thisbook is a how-to for system and network
administrators who need to move to a more secure operating system
and a reference for seasoned OpenBSD users who want to fully
exploit every feature of the system.
After getting readers started with OpenBSD, the authors explain
system configuration and administration, then explore more exotic
hardware and advanced topics. Every chapter of the book addresses
the issue of security because security is integrated into almost
every facet of OpenBSD. Examples appear throughout the book, and
the authors provide source code and system details unavailable
anywhere else. This goes well beyond the basics and gives readers
information they will need long after they have installed the
system. Key topic coverage includes: Installation and upgrade
detailsBasic system usage in OpenBSD versus other Unix
systemsThird-party software via packages and the ports treeSMTP
services in OpenBSDWeb services with ApacheUsing OpenBSD as a
firewallOpenBSD as a Kerberos V client and serverUse of
IpsecConfiguration and use of IPv6Network intrusion detection
"Secure Architectures with OpenBSD" takes you inside OpenBSD,
giving you the insights and expertise no system manual can provide.
The companion Web site tracks advances and changes made to the
operating system, and it contains updates to the book and working
