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.

TinyBSD – a set of tools and shell scripts, part of the FreeBSD base system (/usr/src/tools/tools), designed to make the development of embedded systems based on FreeBSD as easy as possible. The TinyBSD script can be used on FreeBSD 5.x, 6.x and 7.x and 8-CURRENT to created a mini FreeBSD version.

The project is financed by Google Summer of Code 2008. The successor of NanoBSD, largely based on its code, supported by the FreeBSD team. It is available in the FreeBSD CVS repository. It allows you to reduce the system to about 30Mb. The same as its prototype allows you to customize the system kernel and ports – not packages (pkg) as in NanoBSD. It contains six pre-defined configurations, such as Wireless Acess Point, VPN, Firewall, bridge, wrap, default, and minimal.

The latest TinyBSD 8.2 Image was built on a 8.2-STABLE system. This is a general purpose TinyBSD image file designed to be written to a 40 – 42MB CF card. It is intended to act as a Wireless or Wired router/firewall.

Developers of the TinyBSD project are Jean Milanez Melo and Patrick Tracanelli.

ClosedBSD – a FreeBSD derived firewall distribution bootable from a cdrom, compact flash, or floppy diskette. It features a complete curses based user interface for managing your network interfaces and firewall rulesets. ClosedBSD includes a powerful ncurses-based configuration manager, allowing the user to easily customize the firewall and NAT settings using a simple interface.

One of the advantages of ClosedBSD is, it can be run directly from a floppy or CD-ROM without need of a hard drive. It can also run on relatively old hardware; the floppy disk version requires an IBM-compatible PC with 8MB of RAM, while the CD-ROM version requires 32MB of RAM.

The latest versions are the 1.0B for floppy disk and 1.0-RC1 for CD.

Its binaries (executables) are freeware, that is, released for use at no cost. Distributed under the terms of the BSD License, which is a free software license. The source code is not, so it’s not free software, its source code is not available to anyone who wants to improve it.

The project developer is Joshua Bergeron.
