Moved all discussion duplicated in this forum thread exclusively here:
New wiki page:
4 posts were split to a new topic: Debian bullseye port
I gather Kicksecure doesn’t have an official logo yet?
How about a News post requesting interested designers come up with one and they can be attributed as the designer forever more? The post can be modeled on the one where you asked for Whonix logo redesign ideas.
Also, I think you mentioned recently that you were slowing down with Tor releases in Whonix. However, the latest Tor stable is now up to 4.6.6 (or thereabouts), so I wonder if that decision will be reviewed?
new wiki page:
I am wondering if it’s better to wait until the kicksecure.com domain is ready. It’s done but hidden behind http simple authentication. Otherwise that would confuse search engines.
Rewriting the whole wiki though to remove anonymity aspects and make it security only is a big effort and progress is slow unfortunately.
What I’d like to avoid is anyone confusing Whonix vs Kicksecure.
Could you review Account and Mobile Security: Difference between revisions - Whonix please? @HulaHoop
1. OK, so:
- Linux Hardening Guide | Madaidan's Insecurities is done (full page awaiting publication)
- Linux Hardening Guide | Madaidan's Insecurities is done (ripped off bits and pieces for AppArmor entry etc.)
So that leads us to Chapter 4 Sandboxing:
I think we should create a standalone page (full licensing) for this one, but with a focus on systemd sandboxing. The other stuff can be for the introduction i.e. sandbox escapes etc.
We can also reference your addition to the security hardening checklist: ~krathalan/systemd-sandboxing - sourcehut git
Does this apply to both Whonix VMs and host, or just the host? (I presume it applies to Whonix also.)
If you agree, I’ll go ahead and create and populate that page.
This section is very confusing:
Users have to do all this then attempt to install GNUnet? Or the other way around? It needs a basic explanation upfront why this (chroot) is required (or not if optional and they want to take the risk).
What about if I want to run the latest version from the GNUnet website, see:
Once I know, we can add instructions for always downloading and verifying the latest versions from here (14.1 at the time of writing):
With this key:
So we should show instructions for these as the example:
I also presume all of this is happening in Whonix-WS, and just the installation steps in Whonix-WS-15 template VM in Qubes-Whonix (obviously we’d recommend a separate template and AppVM for this purpose).
I suggest to slow down with importing contents from madaidan until licensing is sorted out.
A post was merged into an existing topic: Locking down your SSH Server and Client
You’re right. It was a brief brainstorm about an idea to make a more censorship robust notification system and it doesn’t belong on here, but on the permanent take-down threat ticket. As for the mmdebstrap steps below it, i have no idea how those got here (weren’t added by me I think) or how they help in installing the thing itself.
I was never able to get it to work and still don’t know why.
A post was split to a new topic: Tor Browser getClientRects fingerprinting
2 posts were merged into an existing topic: very hard to notice Phishing Scam - Firefox / Tor Browser URL not showing real Domain Name - Homograph attack (Punycode)
Could you review Full Disk Encryption: Difference between revisions - Whonix please? @HulaHoop
Should I move very hard to notice Phishing Scam - Firefox / Tor Browser URL not showing real Domain Name - Homograph attack (Punycode) from news to development forums? Same URL would remain functional.
Not in news forums disadvantage: someone really digging through news wouldn’t find it. Otherwise burried since posts in news forums aren’t bumped for new replies. But perhaps is OK if this moves to documentation instead.
If in development forums advantage: the thread gets bumped, more visible.
