Mastering FreeBSD and OpenBSD Security

Contributed by dhartmei on from the vaults-for-fuzzy-slippers dept.

O'Reilly announces that Mastering FreeBSD and OpenBSD Security by Yanek Korff, Paco Hope, and Bruce Potter will be available in April (and can be pre-ordered now). The first chapter is available now as PDF. This is the book that was previously listed with a different title and publisher on Amazon (see Yanek's comment there). Glad to hear it's finally published, the first chapter looks very promising .

      Hard to get the book? Just order it of Amazon? what's hard about that? Sure it's hard now since it's not released but I guess that isn't what you ment? Looks like a nice book, gonna wait for comments and if it get's good reviews i'll order it.

        Personally, I'll be ordering it regardless of good/bad reviews. So long as it has the word OpenBSD on the cover, I'm going to add it to my collection of other OpenBSD & FreeBSD related books.

    ahhh, finally an oreilly book for Obsd! it definitely looks like a good book - mostly based on the title. The sample first chapter starts off like most other security books though. I was hoping to dive right past the /basics/...i will probably end up buying it though, seeing how those just happen to be the only two unices i use/recommend/implement anymore.

      i will buy this. btw, oreilly put out 'bsd hacks' a while ago and that had some specific openbsd configuration info about pf in it if i recall correctly. good cheer, xhrl

    in other news, stories submitted by evild get lost somewhere... but never fear daniel has us all covered. =] im sure he posted this before he got around to reading all the various submissions but its still funny. we all love you daniel.

    1. By Daniel Hartmeier ( on

      Yes, this was submitted multiple times. All submissions were helpful, I just didn't credit any of them in particular (as that list would have been longer than the article itself ;). Sorry about that, your submission was appreciated.

        i guess i wasnt the only one going to amazon once a week to see when the fucking book would be available. its a year and a half late, but at least its going to have newer stuff in it. i just hope its more advanced than secure architectures and absolute openbsd.

    What!? No animals on the cover? What kind of definitive guide can possibly have bipeds on the cover!? :)
