New Member - CTurt

We've added a new member to the HardenedBSD team! CTurt will be working with us to research, exploit, and produce patches for kernel-level vulnerabilities. We'll be working on getting these kernel security enhancements upstreamed to FreeBSD after the fixes have been deemed stable in HardenedBSD first.

New development versions.

What's new:
* changed internal data types
* added new KPI to query the current HardenedBSD hardening version (in this case it returns 40)
* the default stack protection from RWX has changed to RW on amd64 architecture, this change is a noop when you have enabled NOEXEC in your kernel config (this is the default)
* fixed etcupdate integration to hbsd-update

Introducing HardenedBSD's New Binary Updater

One feature our users have been asking us ever since we officially launched over a year ago was to provide binary updates for base and kernel. We are excited to announce that we are launching the framework for binary updates today! We still need to tie in the update build script to our continuous integration infrastructure. For now, updates for the hardened/current/master branch of the HardenedBSD repo will be done manually. When we create the next installers/distsets for the HardenedBSD-stable repo, we'll also support updates there. You will notice two new programs, /usr/sbin/hbsd-update and /usr/sbin/hbsd-update-build, which apply and build update packages, respectively. This work was sponsored by G2, Inc, who has an immediate need for binary updates.

Please note that this feature is still experimental. Read on for design documentation.

Introducing secadm 0.3.0-beta-01

Over the last few months, Brian Salcedo has been working on rewriting our secadm tool from scratch. We're excited to announce the first beta release of secadm 0.3.0. User-facing changes in this release include:

  1. secadm set is now secadm load and requires a file path.
  2. secadm list is now secadm show.
    • You can now export the ruleset to different formats with the -f argument! For example, secadm show -f json exports the rules to JSON format.
  3. You can now add/remove rules one at a time with secadm add and secadm del.
  4. You can now enable/disable rules one at a time with secadm enable and secadm disable.
  5. UCL rule language is nearly the same.

Please give this release a try. You can download the tarball here and the GPG signature here. If you find any issues, please email Brian Salcedo (brian.salcedo {at} hardenedbsd.org) and CC Shawn Webb (shawn.webb {at} hardenedbsd.org).

Follow this example for the new UCL syntax:

secadm {
    pax = {
        path = "/usr/local/bin/testpie";
        aslr = false;
    }
}

Update 2015-11-22 21:58 EST: An issue was found with the PAGEEXEC and MPROTECT feature parsing. The version number has been bumped to 0.3.0-beta-02 and the links have been updated accordingly.

New Package Building Server

The folks at Automated Tendencies have graciously decided to provide a better package building server for us. We've got it set up and are running tests on it now. The old server built packages at a rate of around 300 packages per hour. This new one averages around 650-700 per hour. We're extremely grateful for Automated Tendencies. Once things settle down, we may look into setting up more mirrors. So if you've pinged us about running a mirror in the past, we may reach out to you soon.
