More info about alleged OpenBDD FBI backdoors

Posted on Thursday, December 16 2010 @ 13:43:36 CET by

More information has been published regarding Gregory Perry's allegations that the FBI implemented hidden backdoors into OpenBSD's IPSEC stack.
He claims that 10 years ago, several developers were paid by the FBI to implement hidden backdoors into OpenBSD's IPSEC stack. This has prompted a lot of speculation about the allegations' validity, and less than 24 hours later, it has descended into one person's word against that of others. Update: Jason Wright, too, denies all the allegations. "I will state clearly that I did not add backdoors to the OpenBSD operating system or the OpenBSD crypto framework (OCF). [...] It is a baseless accusation the reason for which I cannot understand."

Gregory Perry gave some additional background information to Robert McMillan, stating he did not intend for De Raadt to make the email public - although he doesn't seem to object to it. The background he provides is incredibly detailed (too much to summarise - just read it yourself), which certainly does seem to lend some credibility to his claims. Then again, in this day and age, information is easy to come by.
