Publisher Comments:

About the Book Topic OpenBSD is designed to be the world's most secure operating system. Established in 1996, there are an estimated 2 million users to date. Many companies and government agencies use OpenBSD to secure their networks. It's not an easy operating system to use, but it is quite powerful with a knowledgeable administrator. Book Description Assuming a reasonable knowledge of basic UNIX commands, design, and permissions, Absolute OpenBSD is written for experienced UNIX users who want to add OpenBSD to their repertoire. It's a straightforward, practical, and complete guide to mastering this powerful and complex operating system. The book takes readers through the intricacies of the platform, teaching them how to manage the system with friendly explanations, background information, troubleshooting suggestions, and copious examples.

Book News Annotation:

Lucas introduces experienced UNIX system administrators to the general management of the OpenBSD operating system. OpenBSD is the most popular of the BSD operating systems (the Berkeley Software Distribution of UNIX), but it has had no printed documentation until this book. Lucas has been working with operating systems based on BSD since the late 1980s. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
