HardenedBSD - SoldierX's First BSD Distribution

I've been extremely busy these past few weeks to bring SoldierX a slice of awesomeness. Early on in the ASLR project, SoldierX graciously donated a sparc64 and later a BeagleBone Black. We've been able to identify a few (still outstanding) issues on ARM with our ASLR implementation. Our implementation would not be as stable, robust, or feature-complete today if it weren't for SoldierX's sponsorship and donations. It is with tremendous excitement that today I'm announcing the launch of the HardenedBSD project.

The HardenedBSD project aims to enhance FreeBSD's security by adding many exploit mitigation technologies and upstreaming those enhancements directly to FreeBSD. You can think of HardenedBSD as more of a staging area for bleeding-edge development of exploit mitigation, hardening, and other security-related technologies for FreeBSD. Once ASLR is feature complete and fully upstreamed (including integration with the Ports tree), I'll port certain security features from the Grsecurity Linux kernel hardening patch.

Please keep in mind that we're still in the early stages of getting everything set up. I'm building our first official package repo as we speak (with more than 20,000 packages, it takes a lot of time). Please give it a spin.
