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!

Where is netstat?

Honestly, this one really gets us as well. Turns out to be a kernel issue, and yes, we’re working on it, but in the meantime, we made sure to include “lsof,” from which you can still determine listening ports and their associated processes, albeit a little bit more of an roundabout process. Nonetheless, lsof is a wicked cool tool, so check it out.

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.

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!

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.

How to build a STABLE OpenBSD Install CD from source

2 Comments

Ever needed a personal STABLE OpenBSD install CD? Sure, we all have especially those tranny loving grannies.

It’s important to note that there are no official full CD install ISO’s of OpenBSD available for download, which is on purpose. Please respect Theo’s wishes and his copyright to the filesystem layout and be sure to order your official install CDs and support the project.

This howto assumes that you already have OpenBSD Installed with the needed development tools. It also assumes that all of the commands below are run as root. Not all commands need to be run as root, but in the interest of simplifying this howto I assume you either know when to use sudo or you’ve su’ed to root before any of the steps below.

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!
