Stephanie security add-ons for OpenBSD 3.6 released

Stephanie for OpenBSD 3.6 is released. The stephanie(7) man page says: "Stephanie for OpenBSD 3.6 adds some features, mostly security related, to the OpenBSD kernel." Features include: System trust list, Trusted path execution, Vexec: Binary integrity, Process privacy, and Userland privacy.

The new version has a mostly rewritten Vexec using hash tables to store data, more privacy features (with hooks for netstat, w, who, last, and finger), and trustcheck(2) syscall removed (use sysctl instead).
