Contributed by tbert on from the geriatric-dropbears dept.

This week on BSDNow, the hosts have an interview with Damien Miller (djm@) of OpenSSH fame. He talks about the recent scrubbing of the default crypto options in OpenSSH, the reasons behind the move to ChaCha20 and the problems with CBC-mode ciphers, the issue of obsolete OpenSSH releases in the wild, code refactoring for the purpose of automated testing, and a list of ideas for future improvements.

Additionally, they have the usual roundup of the week's happenings in all things BSD.
