Moin sacerdos_daemonis,

My intention with creating this [and NetBSD] Topic, was to published here only those documents, books.. that are publicly available for download.

But Yes, If you wish You can also add here - for notice reason - also those that are "listed" on bookstore shelves

Salut!
Marcin

I guess since people are interested, I also did a MIPS on OpenBSD talk back in 2013 (audio and slides):

As I replay to a long thread OpenBSD projects http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-misc&m=141980851122724&w=2

Ingo has just assembled the most incredible list of OpenBSD related projects.

http://mdocml.bsd.lv/openbsd_projects.html

As he noted it is really difficult to draw a line what is or what is not OpenBSD related. For example I don't see nvi even though developers practically forked nvi version 1.79 which is shipped with BSDs and created OpenBSD fork clean of bugs and lots of obsolete code. It will be available for 5.7 release.

nvi has been part of OpenBSD since the very first commit of OpenBSD (literally: see http://cvsweb.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cv....bin/vi/README and scroll all the way to the bottom). Nvi 1.79 was imported on July 27, 1997 (17 years, 5 months ago according to the CVS logs).

Yes, there has been some work done on vi(1) recently. Namely, ansification (a diff that I personally reviewed), removal of the Perl API that was broken for years, and removal of portability goo we don't need. But it's still a mess. Personally I would love to build a new, modern vi from scratch but ENOTIME. I wouldn't call this in any way an OpenBSD project. All the BSDs have made extensive changes to their import of nvi. I like what FreeBSD has done with theirs. But it's still kludge on a program from the early 90s (and older).

This is really exaggerating things. It was a handful of commits making nice but basically trivial changes. It’s not a fork. Actually it nudges things a little closer to FreeBSD nvi (but not close enough).

Out there, in the vast space of Internet, there is a good presentation about network stack virtualization in OpenBSD, presented in 2009 by Claudio Jeker at Slackathon; Schizophrenic Firewalls - virtualized network stack and other crazyness in OpenBSD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfyyBI7JHQI - as usual, youtube-dl is good choice to preserve it. Slides: http://www.openbsd.org/papers/f2k9-vrf/
And the article written also by C. Jeker in 2008, OpenBSD network stack internals: http://www.openbsd.org/papers/asiabsdcon08-network.pdf that is related to VRF (virtual routing and forwarding) and Label Distribution Protocol, which distributes MPLS label mappings between routers <-- and to MPLS I found also text written by him; Demystifying MPLS The MPLS framework in OpenBSD: https://2011.eurobsdcon.org/papers/jeker/MPLS.pdf

Results of a 2006 statistical study done by Andy Ozment and Stuart Schechter, MIT, Milk or Wine: Does Software Security Improve with Age? that reported an overall vulnerability density in OpenBSD distributions from version 2.3 till 3.7, presented at 15th USENIX Security Symposium in 2006:
