OpenBSD is widely used as the basis for critical DNS servers, routers, firewalls, and more. With this book, you'll learn the intricacies of the platform, the technical details behind certain design decisions, and best practices. This edition has been updated for OpenBSD 5.3, including new coverage of OpenBSD's boot system, security features like W^X and ProPolice, and advanced networking techniques. You'll also learn how to: manage network traffic with VLANs, trunks, IPv6, and the PF packet filter; make software management quick and effective using the ports and packages system; give users only the access they need with groups, sudo, and chroots; configure OpenBSD's secure implementations of SNMP, DHCP, NTP, hardware sensors, and more; and customize the installation and upgrade processes for your network and hardware, or build a custom OpenBSD release.
