    Re: HardenedBSD since it’s mentioned above.

    Linked above is an interesting comparison of all BSD security features.

    Looks like HardenedBSD might be more secure than OpenBSD.

    I would like to point out that any such comparison, by its very nature, will be skewed in favour of whomever has produced it – otherwise, there is simply no point in doing such a thing and one might simply point the reader towards an unbiased comparison done by an independent 3rd-party.

    There are quite a few cherry-picked features from HardenedBSD, for which an exact equivalent might either not exist or a different solution is being used elsewhere. At the same time, other security enhancements and exploit mitigations have been omitted from said comparison –

    Just to be clear, I have nothing against HardenedBSD – I wish FreeBSD just adopted more (all?) of the enhancements, the former project has done.
