OpenBSD OpenBSD strives to be the most secure UNIX derivation. Design principles, such as code auditing, extensive use of encryption, and careful configuration choices, combine to ensure OpenBSD's secure by default philosophy holds true. This article gives you a close look at the operating system so secure that it was once banned for use in a DEF CON competition, where crackers go after each other's systems.

Correctness matters

While the OpenBSD team appears to be most concerned with security, much of that is a natural byproduct of a struggle towards correctness. That's the beauty of OpenBSD -- not merely that it is secure, but that it is designed to be clean, comprehensible, and correct from the ground up. That includes drivers -- no binary blobs here.

Others could take a hint.
