Liberte Linux--Encrypted CommunicationSubmitted by rp4pres on Mon, 01/07/2013 - 00:38
Liberté Linux is a secure, reliable, lightweight and easy to use Gentoo-based LiveUSB/SD/CD Linux distribution with the primary purpose of enabling anyone to communicate safely and covertly in hostile environments. Whether you are a privacy advocate, a dissident, or a sleeper agent, you are equally likely to find Liberté Linux useful as a mission-critical communication aid.
Liberté Linux is not a generic live Linux distribution with anonymity features. Its primary focus is to let you communicate, stealthily and securely, with other people in a hostile environment. Here, hostile environment is one where someone resourceful seeks to find out your identity because of something you do. You might be a dissident in an oppressive Islamic regime, perhaps, or an anti-government cell coordinator in China. A highly-ranked mole in the US intelligence service, passing information to his handler in the Belarusian embassy. Or, a whistle-blower in an international petroleum corporation. All these possibilities have something in common: high technological capacity of the authority in place, and willingness to use this capacity to find out who you are in order to stop you. Of course, you might just consider using Liberté because you dislike the idea of a bureaucrat somewhere deciding whether something you do online is legitimate or not. You are welcome.
I'm already jumping through about 20 hoops to get here.. Yes, I believe my government had a hand in 9/11 and numerous other atrocities perpetuated against this nations people.....sooooo, If I believe those things, the next logical conclusion is, that they'd fuck me up too. I decided some time ago, not to take the chance..
Anyway, this fits on a usb, uses encryption and is live straight from the usb key.. You can boot into it on almost any computer directly from the key, encrypt all of your data, which never leaves the realm of that usb.
Your computer doesn't even need a hard drive to run it.
This would be useful for many Liberty minded endeavors, in my opinion. Check it out!
