About

OpenBSD is a BSD variant with a strong emphasis on security.

Philosophy

The OpenBSD project emphasizes security and has long been a proponent of cryptography. OpenSSH, the most common implementation of SSH, is produced by the OpenBSD project.

Other goals of the OpenBSD project include freeness, transparency (all development work is public), and standard compliance.
