PfSense has just released updated hardware requirements for future versions of the companies software. For those not in the know, pfSense is an open source firewall computer software distribution that is built upon FreeBSD. Instead of specialized and costly equipment, pfSense is installed on a physical computer or a virtual machine to make a dedicated firewall for a network. PfSense can also be used to create a DHCP server, DNS server, Router, or VPN endpoint. Personally, I like to set it up with Snort and supplement my Yara addiction.
