OPNsense is a specialist operating system for firewalls and routers. OPNsense has historically been based on HardenedBSD which offered some extra security features. However, HardenedBSD has a relatively small userbase and development team which has made supporting the operating system more difficult. The OPNsense team has decided to switch to FreeBSD as their upstream base. "With FreeBSD 13 released and the gaining interest for security, we think it is now time to change our strategy a bit and focus our efforts further on FreeBSD to help improve security as much as we can. In time there is a risk that HardenedBSD additions are less compatible with new FreeBSD security features. For this reason we are aiming to incorporate FreeBSD 13.x into OPNsense 22.1 in January 2022."
