"OpenBSD announced... the launch of OpenBSD 2.6, the first computer operating system to integrate the free open source OpenSSH secure communication tools in the base system. Already regarded by many security experts as the most secure OS on the Internet, OpenBSD now comes even closer to being "Secure by Default".

""We've been trying for over two years to build a free version of SSH to ship with the system" says Theo de Raadt, OpenBSD project leader. "We now have a complete, secure and stable system to work from..."

"In addition to OpenSSH, OpenBSD integrates a full complement of strong cryptographic algorithms to further enhance the security of the operating system. The OS is published in Canada and all crypto development is done outside the USA to avoid the US government's export prohibitions.

"Based on UC Berkeley's 4.4BSD-Lite, OpenBSD 2.6 was developed by a team of Internet volunteers."
