We have a requirement for an in-depth paper on the BSD Family Operating Systems (Free/Open/NetBSD/Darwin). The paper should be done in parts (part 1, part 2, part 3, etc), and must be at least 5 written pages in length per part. We are anticipating this being a 25-35 page paper. We would like the bidders to submit a 1.5 - 3 written page tutorial on this topic so we may evaluate the bidder’s writing style (this submission may be used as part 1 of the total paper. We are really looking for a writer (preferrably a native english speaker) that will gear this paper toward beginners in the information technology and information assurance/security field. We would like to see this paper cover the similarities and the differences between each of the BSD Operating Systems, security features, common uses, and system hardening/system modifying/fine tuning the BSD family OSs are a must. Writers that can also add in-depth look at the differences between the BSD & Linux kernel will be given special consideration. Screenshots, diagrams, cited references are an absolute must, and will not be counted towards the total page length of the submitted document.
