This page title is too complex and cannot be easily posted in forums. Could you please move this page to give it a better page name?

Reading thru whonix. org/wiki/KVM, there’s the note:
„Read and apply the [Pre-Installation Security Advice](whonix. org/wiki/Pre_Install_Advice)“ which leads to an outdated page, which links to another page, but the Pre-Installation isn’t there either. As you’ve already covered here that some pages are outdated, a new guide from tempest would come in handy and/or update the wiki here.
Where I can imagine an own wiki page from tempest would be a good thing, as he walks thru all necessary steps from scratch to finish - maybe especially for new users.


this will be coming. i’m converting chapters into wiki text at the moment.

Also not sure we should go into privacy by policy based advice anyhow. Previous (existing point):

JonDonym [archive] notes:

Due to the US PATRIOT Act (especially p. 215ff) and the fourth amendment to the FISA Amendments Act it is possible for US authorities to eavesdrop on the communication of non US citizens without a warrant. According to the US authorities it is enough that the servers are located in the US.

Lots of countries have similar programs. It might be hard to find any that don’t have these. Seems pretty difficult to keep track and reason about since there are ~ 200 countries and hard to keep track about each of these.

The fourteen eyes are irrelevant. Just because those governments share data with each other, doesn’t mean they’re going to force the email provider to.


I think it’s worthless advice and we must only recommend things on a technical basis and assume if surveillance is possible then it is happening.

Offtopic: Is there a better looking vector icon for Thunderbird we can use? This one is absolutely hideous.
