Running on almost twenty different architectures, and easily portable to others, NetBSD gained its reputation as the most portable operating system on the planet. While that may indicate high quality code, the ever demanding networked world cares about more than just that. Over the past year, NetBSD evolved quite a bit in various areas. This paper, however, will focus on those aspects relating to security. This paper was written and structured to present a full overview of the recent security enhancements in NetBSD in an easily readable and balanced form that will satisfy new, intermediate, and experienced users. References were sprinkled across the text to provide more information to those who want more detail, while preserving the continuity.

Can't really make my mind on your NetBSD presentation, to be frank. Could use more reference!
