The post General information on various clock sources such as tsc etc. by intel appeared first on Whonix.
A browser is no safe environment to write stuff such as for example forum posts or e-mails, webmail or IMAP.
The post good read on the linux security wrt to entropy / randomness appeared first on Whonix.
Whonix website, especially downloading and getting started is so super secure that mortal users give up on it. Even friends of mine, who graduated from university and working as engineers are incapable of getting Whonix installed.
My mission to make everyone happy with implementing geeky feature requests like "optional torrent downloads" has failed. Stuff like this really gets small groups of geeks happy, but overall it over complicates the download process.... read more
The post Persistent Tor Entry Guard Relays can make you trackable Across Different Physical Locations appeared first on Whonix.
I am wondering, if something like that would be useful for Qubes OS to ease download and installation.
Something similar has been discussed for Whonix some time ago, although with a different outcome.... read more
The post Selected Papers in Anonymity - Anonymity Bibliography - Selected Papers in Anonymity appeared first on Whonix.
There have been some complaints, that there are too many Whonix packages. Specifically by people auditing or trying to understand Whonix better. I think here is some valid and some invalid criticism. Nowadays seemlingly almost everyone is overworked. Attention spawns are small. However, it should not be expected to be capable to get an overview about a linux distribution in 5 minutes. All I can do is ask to take 30 or 60 minutes to go through the list of Whonix packages one by one. Perhaps just read the quick github description. And if you want to learn more, see their readme files. That should give you a good first overview.... read more

It's been suggested to post Whonix signing key on twitter. Yes. Why not. Good idea. Let's post it to facebook and twitter. Just for additional verification. Needless to say, that relying on key signatures is more secure.

Public for a long time, yet seemingly not found by anyone.
it. Fork it on github. Ideally keep it current.
Test our instructions for replicating whonix.org.
Whonix is an operating system focused on anonymity, privacy and security. It's based on the Tor anonymity network, Debian GNU/Linux and security by isolation. DNS leaks are impossible, and not even malware with root privileges can find out the user's real IP.
Whonix consists of two parts: One solely runs Tor and acts as a gateway, which we call Whonix-Gateway. The other, which we call Whonix-Workstation, is on a completely isolated network. Only connections through Tor are possible.... read more
The new Qubes website is looking great. Check it out!
It's a great inspiration. Whonix's home page also urgently needs a redesign.
The Tor Project is running its first donation campaign ever. I urge our dear users to support them. They are the guardians of the last free space on the web, working tirelessly and passionately to preserve people's rights and even lives around the planet. Without them Whonix wouldn't exist.
Blogging at Whonix blog now got a lot more convenient. It is really fun now.
troubadour is working on a graphical Anon Connection Wizard. It will be a tor-launcher clone. Written in python. It can be used to express if you like to connect to the public Tor network or using Tor bridges.

Either start with fresh templates. I.e. uninstall qubes-template-whonix-gw and qubes-template-whonix-ws. Then, to install, run in dom0:
sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-dom0-unstable qubes-template-whonix-gw qubes-template-whonix-ws
