This area contains files and data used in recent and ongoing development and test activities.
While most of this information is publicly visible it is so provided without any

The OSF maintains a wide variety of test environments for both regression testing and
new code development. With personnel distributed across 15 time zones this "lights out" facility allows
remote power cycling and access to USB and serial interfaces for the many devices that are not
routinely left powered up and online. Thanks to the donation of some clever gadgets from
one of our FIPS 140-2 validation sponsors,
such as the CM4000 serial console server and the
IP-PDU 9108, this remote management is done easily
and securely using OpenSSL based cryptography.
