BSD systems don't use runlevels or a subdirectory structure containing scripts for each runlevel. Instead, a single configuration file, /etc/rc.conf, is used to determine which services start at boot time. Additionally, this file contains security settings that can be implemented at boot time. Some of these include:

• Disabling the operating system being revealed in motd

• Setting the securelevel

• Loading a firewall ruleset

The available configuration settings vary by BSD and are detailed in rc.conf(5) on FreeBSD and NetBSD and rc.conf(8) on OpenBSD.
