'''NetBSD''' is an open source [[Unix]]-like [[operating system]] derived from the original University of California Berkeley's 4.3BSD release via the Networking/2 and 386BSD releases. It is available on many platforms.
  
'''Serpent''' [[encryption]] algorithm designed by Ross Anderson, Eli Biham and Lars Knudsen as a candidate for the Advanced Encryption Standard [[AES]] competition, where it got second place with 59 votes ([[Rijndael]] got 86 votes, and was selected by [[NIST]] as the [[AES]]).
 
  
Serpent uses a block size of 128 bits and supports a key size of 128, 192 or 256 bits.

Serpent and Rijndael are somewhat similar. The main difference is that Rijndael has fewer rounds (10, 12 or 14 (depending on key size) compared to 32 for Serpent), hence it is faster. Arguably, Serpent is more secure.
