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.

"OS' such as OpenBSD, are not real UNIX because they do not provide completely compatible API implementations, or do not even implement specific parts of the standard!"

Not being certified does not mean it's not compliant.

"but partial compliance is only "good enough" -- it isn't enough to call them "compliant."

The certified commercial *nixes aren't 100% compliant either.
