More hardening configuration for extra security with FreeBSD 

 

Hardening configuration for extra security with FreeBSD

Thanks came in via Twitter so thanks to this person. This person highlights the default security holes that this BSD has. Maybe OpenBSD would be more appropriate since it was build with security in mind.

This lead to this comparison of OpenBSD being more secure from this 2014 URL

DARPA does machine learning and security

DARPA does machine learning and security

This government agency may have some interesting projects you should know about for trading

These look most interesting with machine learning even:

BERI is a pipelined 64-bit RISC FPGA soft-core processor designed for teaching and research in the hardware-software interface. BERI is implemented in Bluespec, a high-level hardware definition language (HDL) that compiles to efficient C simulation or Verilog descriptions suitable for FPGA implementation. (Bluespec System Verilog)

I would think Raytheon would implement decent security with their projects

 

Probabilistic Programming for Advancing Machine Learning (PPAML)
