The upcoming release of FreeBSD 6.2 includes the new Security Event Auditing system, that “permits the selective and fine-grained logging of security-relevant system events for the purposes of post-mortem analysis, intrusion detection, and run-time monitoring analysis.” Federico Biancuzzi interviewed Robert Watson, founder of the TrustedBSD project, and discussed the advantages and potential it brings. Elsewhere, SCTP has been added to FreeBSD. Stream Control Transmission Protocol is a reliable message oriented transport protocol which provides network fault tolerance.

Every release gets better and bette and I’m afraid if they continue like this, they will wipe out all other contenders for the best OS ever:-)
This is a feature (Auditing) I would like to put in production on my server with confidential data.
Especially the fact that I could pipe this log to another machine would be helpfull.
But I’m really paranoid as I’m currently evaluating gbde and geli but that’s another matter.
Anyhow, this brings another dimension to this all and I can’t wait to play with it and try it out when 6.2 comes out
