Original OSNews Interviews Robert Watson is a member of the FreeBSD Project's core and security-officer teams, and founder of the TrustedBSD Project. For his day job, he is a Research Scientist in the network security research group at NAI Labs, studying operating and network security issues. His primary contributions on the FreeBSD Project come in the form of security enhancements to the system; the TrustedBSD feature set arriving in FreeBSD 5.0 will include file system access control lists, mandatory access control, and support for fine-grained privileges. DARPA is now funding a FreeBSD security research and development project at NAI Labs, and they also sub-contract to a number of independent developers in the FreeBSD community to complete that work.

Yes, could not agree more.

Have been using FreeBSD since 1995. It has come a long way.
It is nice to see government funding as a recognition of all
the FreeBSD developers who have given their time and efforts
into making FreeBSD.
Best Wishes,
