That’s right, from the 1337 hax0rs that brought you Anonym.OS, kaos.theory/security.research presents S.A.M.A.E.L. (Secure, Anonymous, Megalomaniacal, Autonomous, Encrypting Linux), the natural evolution of our secure, automagicically anonymizing operating system, Anonym.OS into a kick-ass anonymizing server!
In unison, we’re proud to introduce N.A.R.C…
Just found out yesterday (by accident, go figure) that Anonym.OS is nominated to be nominated for the 2006 SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards! Woot!
If you’ve downloaded, used and enjoyed Anonym.OS (or haven’t, but love the idea), please take a few moments to go to the SourceForge page and vote for us in the Security category! Nominations close today, so please take a few minutes to go there now!
Today, although it’s possible, Anonym.OS is not designed for easy installation. Remember, this was our first beta and the primary goal was pushing out a live operating environment that was [mostly] stable and effectively provided strong security, anonymity and encryption out of the box.
Seems we nailed that goal pretty well, so our next step is to address all of the optional but highy desirable features, like:
* Installation to HD/USB
* Automatic mounting of local HD partitions
* More “desktop” tools like office apps, multimedia, etc
These features are being included based on the number of requests we get, so make sure and let us know what you want to see most in future versions of Anonym.OS!

Ruleset by elmore; initially built as a base template forAnonym.OS/BSD LiveCD. (Note: Anonym.OS uses a newer PF ruleset by elmore, not available separately. For the newer ruleset, please download Anonym.OS and extract /etc/pf.conf.
Like sand through the hourglass, so are the vestiges of our privacy. From increased governmental surveilance to corporate content restrictions and data brokers, what you do, where you go, and who you talk to is of more interest to more people every day.
Anonym.OS is an OpenBSD 3.8 Live CD with strong tools for anonymizing and encrypting connections. Standard network applications are provided and configured to take advantage of the tor onion routing network.
Lots been going on behind the curtain lately. Hopefully, in as little as a few short days, I’ll be implementing:
- improved RSS feeds courtesy of FeedBurner
- email syndication courtesy of FeedBlitz
- and a new website with frequently asked questions and answers, prominent download links for Anonym.OS, how-to’s and tutorials, and much, much more!
Stay tuned for details!

I’m happy to say, we’re getting a lot of great feedback about Anonym.OS, as well as a ton of feature requests, many of which are already on our roadmap, which we’ll be posting here soon. In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite quotes:
Steve of NeighborGeek News says:
This project by the kaos.theory security research group, if successful, will be one of the greatest innovations in computer security in a long time.
Anonym.OS — Been waiting for something like this! WOW!
Of course there have always been homegrown solutions to what Anonym.OS offers, however it is *very* nice to have an .ISO based, live non-linux solution (OpenBSD, best OS!).
Anonym.OS is now used exclusively here for all secure communication needs, as well as one of my most reccommended utils.
Keep up the great job!
Awesome program! I don’t use it for privacy, I use it for the security.
