Beyond BIOS – BSD 2014

Dear Readers,

You are going to read the "Beyond BIOS" issue from BSD magazine. You have the chance to learn how to prepare to install an EFI environment on an Intel-based computer, how to perform the installation and how to manage the computer once it’s up and running. What is more, our experts will teach you with moderate experience in any Unix-like system to install and deploy a quality office server with common applications and services. Finally, you may find interest in the "Debugging and Troubleshooting: Fun, Profit and Go Home Earlier" tutorial provided by Carlos Antonio Neira Bustos.  Carlos is going to represent a real life situation where debugging skills will save us time, headaches and possibly to find a solution using a minimal amount of effort.
We  would like to express my gratitude to our experts who contributed to this publication and invite others to cooperate with our magazine.

INSIDE

Beyond BIOS, The Extended Firmware Interface (EFI)
José B. Alós
Jose describes the overall features and principles of EFI, including why you might want to use it, how EFI boots and what types of boot loaders you might use with it to enable non-Windows 8 OSes to boot on an EFI computer. The next three parts of this series will describe how to prepare to install an EFI environment on an Intel-based computer, how to perform the installation and how to manage the computer once it’s up and running.
Debugging and Troubleshooting: Fun, Profit and Go Home Earlier.
Carlos Antonio Neira Bustos
Debugging/Troubleshooting is a really useful skill when you are working on maintaining legacy applications doing some small incremental changes to an old code base, where the code has been touched by so many hands over the years and it is really becoming a mess. So, management has decided that the code works as-is and you are not allowed to change it all over “the right way (tm)”.
In this tutorial, Carlos is going to represent a real life situation where debugging skills will save us time, headaches and possibly find a solution using the minimal amount of effort.
Deploying an Office Server In FreeBSD, With File Sharing and E-mail
Ivan Voras
The goal of this tutorial is to teach users with moderate experience in any Unix-like system to install and deploy a quality office server with common applications and services. To ensure this, the tutorials of the workshop will cover not only how something is done but also why it's done. And this will also be reflected in the final test.
Return Oriented Programming
Juanma Menéndez
Juanma, in this article, presents how easy a hacker can exploit a stack overflow in an NX bit protected system and the other protections that we must not neglect as well such as compiler options and Address Space Layer Randomization (ASLR). Only when these protections are working together,  we must think about a hardened programming environment.

Your download links are broken in Firefox 31.0 at the moment. Just thought you should know.

Can’t download issue (mouse-over highlights, but no download link!), can’t log-in, so tried lost password – it doesn’t recognise user name I registered with (last month) or my eMail address (but I get emails for promotions, and “BSD News: The August BSD Issue is Out!”)?

Nicely fixed. The eager to cite and otherwise sentimental may wish for not only awesome epub metadata but also filenames longer than the momentary BSD_epub.epub e.g. BSDmag_org-2014-08-4semane.epub and then remind everyone of the HTTP file comment protocol (…SPDY then…) that somehow lets one pack in -UEFI-Intel DebugRoom LAN HardenedByContract and citations the authors were pleased to see so far (obviously not there at first!)
