pfsense 2.2 enters beta – We found the top motherboard for it

After many months of development, pfsense 2.2-BETA is finally here. pfsense is an excellent router/ firewall distribution based off of FreeBSD. Personally, I use pfsense on a daily basis and have been using pfsense 2.2-ALPHA for many months now. The move from pfsense 2.1 to 2.2 may sound trivial, but it has absolutely huge implications for the distribution.

Getty Encryption is hard. When NSA leaker Edward Snowden wanted to communicate with journalist Glenn Greenwald via encrypted email, Greenwald couldn’t figure out the venerable crypto program PGP even after Snowden made a 12-minute tutorial video. Nadim Kobeissi wants to bulldoze that steep learning curve. At the HOPE hacker conference in New York later this month he’ll release a beta version of an all-purpose file encryption program called miniLock, a free and open-source browser plugin designed to let even Luddites encrypt and decrypt files with practically uncrackable cryptographic protection in seconds. “The tagline is that this is file encryption that does more with less,” says Kobeissi, a 23-year old coder, activist and security consultant.
