CT on OpenBSD 6.8


We test Lab CodeTyphon 7.30 on OpenBSD 6.8

OpenBSD project produces a free, multi-platform BSD 4.4-based UNIX-like operating system.
Its efforts emphasize portability, standardisation, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography.
The project also develops the widely-used and popular OpenSSH (OpenBSD Secure Shell) software, which provides encrypted communication sessions over a computer network using the SSH protocol.

OpenBSD is one of our LAB Reference OSes
