The First Ever LibreSSL Status Report (the first 30 days)

Contributed by pitrh on from the flensing-in-progress dept.

The BSDCan conference in Ottawa, Canada was the venue for the first ever formal status summary for the LibreSSL project.

Head code flenser Bob Beck (beck@) gave a presentation that is well worth your time reading and when the recording turns up, check that out too.

For now, most easily found via the BSDCan website, sure to be on every major news outlet soon.

Update: The actual presentation is now available here.

Update 2: Jason Tubnor's video shows it as it really happened. Enjoy!

    Maybe this report could be handy to choose to drop/keep ciphers or if to use them.

    Long story short: Researchers have solved one aspect of the discrete logarithm problem.

      >Yes, I am extremely annoyed at the misquoting of my presentation, and my slides, by the person who wrote this summary for Slashdot. As I said in the talk, and in the slides, the Linux Foundation has not *yet* committed to support us. Discussions with them are ongoing. Saying that they have somehow "Ignored" us is both slanderous and wrong, and shows exactly what is wrong with Slashdot when they let garbage like this go up. If you have some sort of beef with the Linux Foundation, please take it up on your own time, and use your own name. Don't use mine, or LibreSSL's.

    Excellent presentation, even if I watched from 0230 to 0400 local due to insomnia. Thanks.
