Halon Security's security router (SR) is a network operating system and software distribution based on OpenBSD[1], with the main differentiator being the single, revision-managed, clear-text configuration file with soft re-configuration (atomic commits) editable from CLI and web[2] interfaces, and documented security architecture.

In general, it's a routing platform with security and VPN features. It aims to be a replacement for proprietary solutions like Cisco IOS[3] and Juniper Junos[4]. You can download it for free from http://dl.halon.se/vsr/ and run it from (for example) a USB stick in a x86 computer (anything from the affordable ALIX[5] to high end systems with 10GE cards), or as a virtual machine.
