"The US Federal Bureau of Investigation implemented a
number of backdoors in the open cryptographic framework used in
OpenBSD, according to a former developer of the operating system.
"Gregory Perry wrote to OpenBSD project chief Theo de Raadt a
few days back, explaining that he was revealing this information
now because he could - his non-disclosure agreement with the FBI
""I wanted to make you aware of the fact that the FBI
implemented a number of backdoors and side channel key leaking
mechanisms into the OCF, for the express purpose of monitoring the
site to site VPN encryption system implemented by EOUSA, the parent
organization (sic) to the FBI," Perry wrote."
