BFC Computing, LLC is an open-computing consultancy specializing in Internet technologies, including: open source software, Internet standards, digital security, and hardware/software development on server, desktop, mobile, and embedded systems.

When you need expert assistance or advice, BFC Computing can provide you with consultants with more than two decades of experience to rapidly and confidently assist with your technology. We provide on-site support in the Northern New England and Boston-area markets; we provide technology services remotely to clients anywhere.

Aside from the technical bits, we’re really about solving business problems. We focus on understanding the business problem, working with the client to develop a solution, and ensuring that the solution meets their needs.

We can work independently, as subcontractors, as a general contractor, at the direction of internal IT staff, or in a Rent-A-CIO functionality. We can manage a project from requirements to delivery, or just focus on a small part. We’re also available to help with assessments, testing, and second opinions when projects need to be set back on track.

Some of our areas of specialization include:

  • Digital Security (cryptography, TLS, system-hardening, penetration testing, protocol design, post-intrusion forensics, etc.)
  • Embedded and special-purpose systems development
  • Linux/BSD/AIX/Solaris systems configuration, administration, and automation (devops, Puppet, AFS/NFS/ZFS storage, etc.)
  • High-availability / redundancy (fault-resistant systems, clustering, auto-fail-over networks, database replication, etc.)
  • Independent compliance audits and assurance (PCI DSS, HIPAA, FIPS/NIST, etc.)
  • Blockchain-based applications, including cryptocurrencies and smart-contract systems.
  • Public and private cloud deployment and orchestration with local and remote monitoring and auto-recovery options.
  • Open Source Licensing.

We’ve recently moved to a statically-generated website for better security. The old blog posts and downloads have been imported but the comments aren’t yet loaded into Discus. We appreciate all the valuable comments, enhancements, and ideas our readers have posted over the years, so we’ll get those up soon.

There are some extraneous HTML tags in some of the posts that we’ll clean up over time. Watch out for those if you’re copying code. The URL’s are currently unstable as we convert from category-based URL’s to more sensible permalinks.

Thank you for your patience.
