I will be talking about the OpenBSD operating system. OpenBSD is a Unix-like operating system and aims to be the number one in the industry for security. INFN CSIRT has based it's core services such as Incident management and incident response, mail services over encrypted storage. More in general OpenBSD is used at INFN for implementing VPN solutions.

I will cover the description of the OpenBSD security features, OS installation and basic usage in this hands-on tutorial.
