!!!! FBI built backdoors into openBSD encryption !!!!
My NDA with the FBI has recently expired, and I wanted to make you aware of the fact that the FBI implemented a number of backdoors and side channel key leaking mechanisms into the OCF, for the express purpose of monitoring the site to site VPN encryption system implemented by EOUSA, the parent organization to the FBI. Jason Wright and several other developers were responsible for those backdoors, and you would be well advised to review any and all code commits by Wright as well as the other developers he worked with originating from NETSEC.

Re: !!!! FBI built backdoors into openBSD encryption !!!!
IF THIS IS FOUND TO BE TRUE, this is pretty big


In an e-mail sent to BSD project leader Theo de Raadt, former NETSEC CTO Gregory Perry has claimed that NETSEC developers helped the FBI plant "a number of backdoors" in the OpenBSD cryptographic framework approximately a decade ago.

Perry says that his nondisclosure agreement with the FBI has expired, allowing him to finally bring the issue to the attention of OpenBSD developers. Perry also suggests that knowledge of the FBI's backdoors played a role in DARPA's decision to withdraw millions of dollars of grant funding from OpenBSD in 2003.

Re: !!!! FBI built backdoors into openBSD encryption !!!!
people are claiming this to be possibly false, but why else would theo raadt come out with such an email that could possibly devistate the public image of his operating system? Im pretty sure the OpenBSD team is taking this seriously and want everyone to audit their code ASAP

Re: !!!! FBI built backdoors into openBSD encryption !!!!
IPsec is a suite of protocols for securing IP communications by authenticating and encrypting each packet of a communication session. There are also protocols for establishing mutual authentication between agents at the beginning of the session and negotiation of cryptographic keys to be used during the session.

"Since we had the first IPSEC stack available for free, large parts of the code are now found in many other projects/products. Over 10 years, the IPSEC code has gone through many changes and fixes, so it is unclear what the true impact of these allegations are," De Raadt wrote.

FreeBSD, NetBSD and DragonFly BSD integrated IPSec and IPv6 code from the KAME project; OpenBSD integrated just IPv6 code rather than both (having developed their own IPSec stack). Linux also integrated code from the project in its native IPSec implementation.


thank god for vim!!!!


but the question remains, if the FBI got their hands in the openBSD IPSEC project 10 years ago........what else have they gotten their hands into?!?!?!???
