BSD Certification Group Takes Initiative

Today, the BSD Certification Group officially announces their website and
group focused in the creation of BSD certification. The public website is
at http://www.bsdcertification.org/.

A number of BSD developers, systems administrators and advocates have 
come together to begin the first steps in the creation of a standard 
BSD certification. Today marks the official launch of their public 
website at http://www.bsdcertification.org/.

The BSDs, including FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and DragonflyBSD, are 
mature operating systems based on the original Unix developed at 
University of Berkeley, California.  BSD powers global Internet service 
provider infrastructures, and BSD userland applications are familiar to 
those running Apple's OS X operating system.  BSD tools like OpenSSH are 
used to securely access remote systems, and many TCP/IP stacks are derived 
from BSD.

"While some may feel that a BSD certification would just replicate the
problems that other certifications have created, namely lack of experience
masked by a piece of paper, the committee is convinced that with the
proper preparation and testing criteria, a tiered BSD certification process 
can demonstrate real-world proficiency as well as provide a goal for those 
just beginning their systems and network administration career," said 
Dru Lavigne, networking and Unix instructor and the chair for the group.

The BSD Certification Group looks to bring together the BSD projects, 
important vendors, educational institutions and beyond to work to make 
this project a success.

The group invites all who are interested to subscribe to the public BSD 
certification mailing list at http://lists.nycbug.org/mailman/listinfo/bsdcert.
