DEFCON 14: SAMAEL and NARC

0 Comments

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…

How do I install Anonym.OS to HD/USB?

1 Comment

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!

Anonym.OS LiveCD

2 Comments

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.

Great Quotes from Happy Users

7 Comments

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.

Nobody:

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!

Student:

Awesome program! I don’t use it for privacy, I use it for the security.

Wow, we’re on Schneier’s blog!

1 Comment

Well, looks like we’re continuing to get good coverage of Anonym.OS; we hit Bruce Schneier’s blog this morning! Since anybody who’s anybody in the security industry knows Bruce, I’m supposing that this alone may generate almost as much traffic as our recent Slashdotting. Thanks for noticing us, Bruce!

Slammed

2 Comments

Well, it’s been a busy three days. I’ve received dozens of emails following our first public beta release of Anonym.OS, and I hope everyone will be patient with me as I try to respond to each email. In the meantime, I can address a few of the more common questions:

1. Where can I download Anonym.OS?

There are currently two download sites — Sourceforge and LinuxTracker

2. Is there an MD5 digest for the ISO?

Don’t know how I missed posting this with the ISO, sorry. :-/ aa3907cbe3220f57e1c1a1bbaec062ef

3. What do I have to do to burn/boot the CD?

You do not have to extract the ISO. Just burn it right from Windows, Mac OS, Linux or BSD and boot right off the CD.

Everything else I haven’t addressed here, I will be addressing in individual email responses, and I will try to compile the more pertinent points into a FAQ that everyone can refer to in the future.

kaos.theory Responds

13 Comments

First of all, I’d like to take a moment to express, on behalf of kaos.theory, how excited and flattered we are by all of the attention that we and Anonym.OS have received. We always thought we were working on a cool project, but we really underestimated the overwhelming response that we’ve had. Scores of terabyte upon terrabytes of data have flowed and the hit counters keep on ticking. It appears that privacy is as big of a concern for a large segment of the population as it is for us.

That being said, there have been a few comments made and viewpoints published that we would like to address while we have the bully pulpit provided by the good folks at digg, Slashdot, Reddit, Wired News, and Ars Technica, among others.

Well, Anonym.OS just got Slashdotted. Guess we’ll see how well Dreamhost stands up to the challenge, eh?
