OPNsense is a FreeBSD-based specialist operating system designed for firewalls and routers. The project’s latest release is OPNsense 22.1 is based on FreeBSD 13 and improves boot speed while removing older, insecure cryptography components. “22.1, nicknamed “Observant Owl”, features the upgrade to FreeBSD 13, switch to logging supporting RFC 5424 with severity filtering, improved tunable sysctl value integration, faster boot sequence and interface initiation and dynamic IPv6 host alias support amongst others. On the flip side major operating system changes bear risk for regression and feature removal, e.g. no longer supporting insecure cryptography in the kernel for IPsec and switching the Realtek vendor driver back to its FreeBSD counterpart which does not yet support the newer 2.5G models. Circular logging support has also been removed.” Additional information and a complete list of changes can be found in the project’s release announcement.
