July 17-20, 2000 in Monterey, California


Secure by Default

Theo de Raadt, OpenBSD

Track: BSD
Date: Thursday, July 20
Time: 2:30pm - 3:00pm

As security issues start gaining greater importance, the default configuration of a user's operating system is becoming more critical. By describing the OpenBSD group's work in this area, Theo will attempt to explain how careful choice of default behaviour leads to systems which are more secure for the user right after install and also educates the user about system behaviour so that more secure decisions are made during re-configuration.
