WiFiBSD – a minimalistic version of FreeBSD based on the 5.x branch. WifiBSD is aimed for wireless routers running on embedded devices such as boards from soekris.com. In addition to the wi driver WifiBSD includes support for Atheros’s 802.11b/g and 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Chipsets. The software is offered as a compact flash image or a small live CD.

WifiBSD was originally based on MiniBSD (also FreeBSD) by Manuel Kasper, but WifiBSD has since evolved beyond the confines of MiniBSD into a distinct project. Rather than being a manual process of reducing FreeBSD by following instruction, developer automate the process with shell scripts. The process of scripting the MiniBSD process has rendered a system much more akin to PicoBSD by Dr. Luigi Rizzo, et’all. WifiBSD is designed to work with current versions of FreeBSD and does not work with anything prior to FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE.

NetBoz Firewall – a FreeBSD based CD-ROM firewall with a web administration interface. NetBoz works over standard FreeBSD services, giving maximum flexibility, ease of use and performance to corporate networks.

It does not use a hard disk, while all the settings are stored on a write-protectable diskette, making it virtually inmune to intrusions and power failures.

System requirements:
– Any 586 type CPU fits (Pentium or better):
* Pentium, Pentium Pro, Pentium II, Pentium III, Pentium 4 and its variants (Celeron) and the
* AMD line ( Am5x86, K5, K6, Athlon and Duron).
– The mother board must have a PCI bus. Its is desirable that it doesn’t have an integrated network card. If it has one and NetBoz is not able to detect it automatically, then it should be necessary to disable it from the BIOS and install an additional PCI network adapter.
– A minimum RAM of 64 MB, while 128 MB are enough for almost all the applications.

foaf (Firewall On A Floppy) – a very small OpenBSD based distribution which provides a firewall on one floppy disk.

This allows you to create a firewall that is based on a floppy (hence the name), and you can build it from a separate source tree. Edit the files in [foaf/config] to configure for your system. Make sure you at least edit [foaf/config/etc/pf.conf] because it has bogus entries for IP addresses, and blocks everything. Right now it is mainly for invisible bridging firewalls, but I (developer) plan to expand it to be a routing firewall.

If your desired network device (or other such device) isn’t supported on the default kernel config (FIREWALL), feel free to add your own. Take out devices that you don’t use.

The project developer is Peter Hessler, and the foaf is released under the MIT License.

BZERK CD – a complete installation of the -current development branch of FreeBSD. No installation required, all you need is a PC with CDRom drive you can boot from and you have a working Unix system. It contains plenty of new features, making it a valuable tool for system rescue administrators.

BZERK CD does not provide a graphical user interface (GUI), it works from a command line only.

It has a lot of new features, making it a valuable rescue tool for system administrators, for example:
– Automatic network detection
– Splash welcome screen
– Netbackup Client
– Tools for Linux filesystems ext2 and ext3

BZERK is making some supplementary customized software and configuration files, making the Bzerk CD useable as a cheap and safe production server, for example:
– ADSL Firewall/router
– Mailserver or MailHUB
– DNS server
– Webserver

FreeBSD LiveCD – a set of tools designed to enable anyone to generate their personally adapted to FreeBSD Live CD. Its begin was in the October 5th of 2001, at the time where FUGSPBR (FreeBSD User Group, SP, Brazil) distributed an ISO image with a fully functional FreeBSD 4.4-STABLE LiveCD, that would allow one to access a number of partition types (since FreeBSD native to Linux and even DOS partitions), build a fully operating Firewall, allow networking flow via NAT, working as router and a number of other issues.

The main subject was to create a tool that would allow us a safe diagnostic method, under emergency environments and specially as a rescue disk where FreeBSD partitions could only be accessed (mounted) externally.

The FreeBSD Project officially distribute a “Live” disk, under most circunstances we needed some more functional tool, that could be run directly from an optic drive (CD) without any other intermediate resource.

FreeBSD LiveCD has been used under many situations, where the most usual are Rescue Disk, Desktop, FreeBSD System demonstration at some computing specific shows, Firewalls, Wireless Bridges, Wired Gateways and, the main issue is that, as you can make a fully custom version, you can use a LiveCD under any environment you wish.

The live system user name is: root (with no password).

MicroBSD – a fork of the UNIX-like BSD operating system descendant OpenBSD 3.0, begun in July 2002. The project’s objective was to produce a free and fully secure, complete system, but with a small footprint. The first phase of its development stopped in 2002. The project was later resumed by a new group of developers, which stopped development again in 2003.

Because of violations of the BSD license the MicroBSD project has been completely removed from the internet, and all MicroBSD users are asked to remove it from their computers.

The old MicroBSD project (hosted at microbsd.com) does not exist anymore, but code from it has been incorporated into the MirOS BSD project. The last version of the old MicroBSD 0.6 project was released in October 2002.

The new MicroBSD project set its goal as trying to continue what the original MicroBSD project began. A new edition of version 0.6 – with cleaned up source code and corrected copyright statements – was released in October 2003. A beta 0.7 version was being derived from OpenBSD 3.4, but the project stalled and all development ceased that November.

MicroBSD was under development by individuals from Bulgaria and was intent on a focus toward security, development of a user interface, easy management and configuration, and the addition of Bulgarian-specific localization.
