"OpenBSD 2.7 improves support for high end system boards, SCSI controllers, ethernet interfaces, and adds gigabit ethernet drivers and IPv6 networking."

"OpenBSD announces release 2.7 of the "Secure by Default" operating system for Internet servers and workstations. OpenBSD 2.7 significantly enhances the built-in strong cryptography with the OpenSSH suite to support the SSH 1 and 2 secure communication protocols and drivers for hardware accelerators for IPSec VPNs."

"OpenBSD's principal goal of security and stability is NETSEC's basis for using it as foundation of our managed security solution," stated Todd Waskelis, NETSEC Vice President. "We've even funded the development efforts of the hardware crypto support in OpenBSD 2.7, which allows us to deliver high bandwidth VPN connections cost-effectively to our clients, and as a bonus, anyone can do it themselves since the code is free."
