FreeBSD 11.0 is finally out! Were you impatient and did you download your upgrade right away?
I’m writing to you from my hotel room in Orlando, Florida. Beautiful weather is outside my window, Hurricane Matthew hasn’t reached this city. I hope you all are safe where you are and that you enjoy this autumn, whether it’s cold and rainy or warm and sunny. We also have Halloween coming very soon. What do you think about this American tradition?
Issue-wise, let’s begin with “Serverless Approach to Security Automation” by Renan Dias. Grab some coffee and fix your corrupted server with us.
Moving on to the FreeBSD Corner. Here you will find an article by Mike Tancsa, “Loading an OpenSSH Hostkey From a Hardware Token on FreeBSD”. What if someone steals a copy of your private key? What if someone breaks into your host and makes off with your hostkey? Find the solution with this article.
Next we will hop right into “Install Windows 10 using VNC on FreeBSD 11 and Above” by Trent Thompson. You have been asking us about more articles about bhyve - here it is.
We have also been asked about more articles on OpenBSD. We hope “OpenBSD 6.0: Why and How” by Derek Sivers will be interesting for you.
If you are a fan of Docker and debugging, we have you covered with Miguel Tavares’ article in “How to Connect Pycharm to Debug a Remote Docker Container Using the Containers Remote Interpreter in BSD”.
At the end of this issue, you will find an interview with Emile Heitor, CTO and Co-owner of NBS System, and Head of the Research & Expertise Department at Oceanet Technology as well as Rob’s Column.
We hope you enjoy this issue and have a nice and sunny October.

Serverless Approach to Security Automation
by Renan Dias
Everyone is talking about DevOps (Development and Operations). Some people say DevOps is the job of a single man, some other people say DevOps is rather a culture and is about the collaboration between the development team and the operations team. The truth is that, regardless of the conflicting ideas, everyone agrees that one of DevOps’ main goals is automation. Software release automation, right? Well, not quite. There are a lot of things that can be automated: software release, infrastructure provisioning, testing, benchmarking and security, to name a few. Now, did you notice the last thing on this list? Security.
Loading an OpenSSH Hostkey From a Hardware Token on FreeBSD
by Mike Tancsa
I had a requirement for creating an sftp server that needs strong client and host authentication. The host needs to know it’s an authorized client connection, and the client needs to know it’s really the host it’s connecting to. SSH and public key crypto is great for this, but what if someone steals a copy of your private key? What if someone breaks into your host and makes off with your hostkey? Until you detect the compromise and revoke and regenerate keys, you run the risk of a man in the middle attack, among other things.
Installing Windows 10 using VNC on FreeBSD 11 and Above
by Trent Thompson
This October of 2016 will be a special month for FreeBSD virtualization. Not only will the most recent release of FreeBSD be ready, but it will have been a year since UEFI booting in bhyve was announced via the FreeBSD-Virtualization Mailing List. At the time, bhyve did not have the ability to allow for any type of graphical console, outside of something run on the guest OS like RDP, VNC, or SPICE. Instead, bhyve used a serial console as a means to communicate with the guest operating system.
OpenBSD 6.0: Why and How
by Derek Sivers
The only operating system I use on my computers is not Mac, not Windows, and not even Linux. It's OpenBSD, and I love it so much.
Since OpenBSD 6.0 was released today, I figured I should say a little something about why I love it, and how you can try it.
How to Connect Pycharm to Debug a Remote Docker Container Using the Containers Remote Interpreter in BSD
by Miguel Tavares
For a little background on my activity, I’ve been working with Python and Stackless Python on Django MVC’s on several BSD servers and using PyCharm as Python IDE to develop on.
