HardenedBSD completes Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) feature
Without ASLR, applications are loaded into memory in a deterministic manner. An attacker who knows where a vulnerability lies in memory can reliably exploit that vulnerability to manipulate the application into doing the attacker's bidding. ASLR removes the determinism, making it so that even if an attacker knows that a vulnerability exists, he doesn't know where that vulnerability lies in memory.

This is just too cool for words. I have been watching this since HP first made credible announcements back is 2012. I wonder what happened with their efforts with Intel and Micron coming out in front, though I know Micron started working on this about the same time as HP.

This is going to have a huge impact on technology over the next three years. I fully expect that three years from now that top tier mobile devices will be 'instant on' when you power them up. That includes laptops and tablets as well as phones. Five years from now, all devices will be instant on. There will be no 'boot time' after that.
Intel Corp. and Micron Technology Inc. have launched a new class of non-volatile memory that they call 3D Xpoint and which the companies said would be available as samples later this year for special customers.

"Some damage to our theories of physics is an acceptable payoff if we get a working space drive," concludes the Wired article.
Later today, July 27, German scientists will present new experimental results on the controversial, "impossible" EM Drive, at the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics' Propulsion and Energy Forum in Orlando. The presentation is titled "Direct Thrust Measurements of an EmDrive and Evaluation of Possible Side-Effects." Presenter Martin Tajmar is a professor and chair for Space Systems at the Dresden University of Technology, interest...

Instead of killing someone who has committed a terrible crime, should we instead alter their brain?

#Netflix   is video on demand service, that already competes with old-style broadcasting or cable television. More than 40 million people watch video over the Internet in HD quality and even higher. Why did Netflix decide to build their own CDN instead of outsourcing? Why did open source technologies namely  #FreeBSD   and #NGINX    were chosen? How do Netflix and Nginx, Inc. collaborate in building software for the CDN?
