FAQ | OpenBSD VPS
What is OpenBSD Used for?
OpenBSD is thought of as the most secure UNIX-like operating system by many security professionals, as a result of the never-ending comprehensive source code audit. OpenBSD integrates cutting-edge security technology suitable for building firewalls and private network services in a distributed environment. It attempts to minimize the need for customization and tweaking. For the vast majority of users, OpenBSD just works on their hardware for their application. [OpenBSD.org]
Is OpenBSD the most Secure OS?
The OpenBSD operating system focuses on security and the development of security features. According to author Michael W. Lucas, OpenBSD "is widely regarded as the most secure operating system available anywhere, under any licensing terms."
[Wikipedia - OpenBSD]
What is the Difference Between FreeBSD and OpenBSD?
If you're building a system with a heavy focus on security then OpenBSD is the better choice as it has a ton of security mitigations build into the operating system. Also, OpenBSD and a great number of its applications go under very critical security auditing.
This doesn't mean that FreeBSD isn't suited to run as a firewall or a secure server, but FreeBSD doesn’t go as far as OpenBSD does in terms of security. However, this also means that OpenBSD is often slower than FreeBSD with regard to issues that get affected by its mitigation techniques.
If you need access to a large amount of third party applications, then FreeBSD has more than four times as many applications in the ports and packages system than OpenBSD does. [UnixSheikh]
Why Use BSD over Linux?
- Why Use BSD over Linux? OpenBSD is security-centered.
- BSD is more than just a kernel. It’s a big cohesive package of OS kernel, and applications for the end-user.
- BSD packages are more trustworthy.
- BSD’s slower change means better long-term stability.
- Linux is too cluttered.
- BSD supports ZFS.
- BSD’s licensing is much, much simpler than GPL. [itsfoss]
