I tried to follow the recommendation to " Increase Protection from Malicious Entry Guards: One Guard per Application" from : /wiki/Tor_Entry_Guards
So I did follow the steps to create some new Whonix-GWs from : /wiki/Multiple_Whonix-Gateway
Then I linked my different WSs to the different GWs. Everything went well, everything seems to be working so far.
Then only not clear part is the difference between the Originial sys-whonix GW and my newly created GWs.
I can see the original one being less heavy on disk storage (like ~30mb less) than every other one, even they’re (of course) all build from the same template. I guess some packages were removed on the original, and maybe some extra config was done on it too.
So the questions are :
- Why is there a difference between the already created sys-whonix and the newly generated ones ?
- What are the differences ?
- Should I continue to create the dedicated GWs from the template VM or should I clone the original sys-whonix GW then regenerate the tor state file inside ?
I saw topics about multiple GWs being addressed in the past and I used them to answer other questions but I didn’t find answers to theses questions.
I apologize if I didn’t follow some rules or posted in wrong section.
