Conference Schedule - BSDCan 2022

Building a Large-Scale Threat Intelligence System with OpenBSD

Date: 2022-06-04
Time: 10:30 - 11:15
Room: Stream 1
Level: Intermediate
All times are Ottawa / New York (UTC-4).

In this talk I describe a threat intelligence system that leverages thousands of OpenBSD firewalls deployed at businesses across a wide range of industries. The data is collected, processed, and analyzed to create tactical threat intelligence feeds that are then automatically disseminated back to all the firewalls to defend against Internet threats. The talk discusses why OpenBSD was selected as the platform of choice and how its features are used to achieve the objectives of this system, as well as challenges and lessons learned.
