Trustix

For a wile I have been planning on writing a “Trustix Vs. OpenBSD security” article for a few security portals.

I finaly got around to starting it this weekend by installing Trustix on a test box.

I must now say that I am calling off the article. Trustix may or may not be secure. I didnt get that far. It is honestly one of the most buggy Operating Systems I have had the displesure of working with in recent years.

It can be as secure as it wants. If its unusable it doesnt matter. 🙂

Seriosly though, It looks like a striped down redhat 7.3 down to the pre X redhat installer. They chucked in a couple different packages (The OpenBSD ftpdaemon, snort and a few others) hacked some of the daemons to tighten them up a bit and called it good.

Thanks but I ‘ll stick with OpenBSD when mission critical security is at stake.
