Surprised I didn’t see this here already, but I thought readers might be interested in knowing OpenBSD and pf were part of the foundation for the network at DEFCON. While this in and of itself is not surprising, of interest though is the use of a quad-core Xeon to power the OpenBSD box—as those of us who religiously read henning@’s misc@ posts know pf is actually being somewhat hindered by the beastly SMP CPU…DEFCON has been using OpenBSD for a long time.
