Anyone with appropriate skills may contribute, with commit rights being awarded on merit and De Raadt acting as coordinator. Maintenance patches for supported releases may be applied manually or by updating the system against the patch branch of the CVS repository for that release. The generic OpenBSD kernel provided by default is strongly recommended for end users, in contrast to operating systems that recommend user kernel customization. Ports are generally not subject to the same continuous auditing as the base system due to lack of manpower. Binary packages are built centrally from the ports tree for each architecture.

CyberCop Sting is a component of the CyberCop intrusion protection software family which also includes CyberCop Monitor, a real-time intrusion detection application that monitors critical systems and networks for signs of attack and CyberCop Scanner, a network vulnerability scanner. CyberCop Sting allows IS managers to silently monitor suspicious activity on their corporate network and identify potential problems.

It operates by creating a series of fictitious corporate systems on a specially outfitted server that combines moderate security protection with sophisticated monitoring technology.

Each virtual network device has a real IP address and can receive and send genuine-looking packets from and to the larger network environment.

Each virtual network node can also run simulated daemons, such as finger and FTP, to further emulate the activity of a genuine system and avoid suspicion by would-be intruders. Network Associates, Inc. CyberCop Sting provides a number of benefits for security administrators, including: Detection of suspicious activity inside network; Log files serve to alert administrators to potential attackers prying into reserved areas.

Virtual decoy network can contain multiple "hosts" without the expense and maintenance that real systems require. CyberCop Sting logs snooper activity immediately, so collection of information about potential attackers can occur before they leave.

CyberCop Sting requires very little file space but creates a sophisticated virtual network. The suite also includes features such as AutoUpdate, modular construction, and Active Security integration to provide product integrity.
