If you are using a system that is not secure enough, anyone can access your system and exploit your data, such as photos, videos, files, crypto wallets and sensitive financial information.
All of our activities typically happen on a single device and this causes us to worry about whether it’s safe to click on a link or install an app, since being hacked imperils our entire digital existence.
Linux systems offer fantastic privacy and security as compared to other OS, like Mac or Windows.
So, if you want high security and privacy, you can use the Linux distros that are best for personal use.
We are happy to introduced one more distribution today, which can be proudly added to the hall of fame next to Operating systems as Qubes OS, Tails and Whonix.
Several different kinds of secure Linux distros exist and they can be separated depends on the based environments they used. Some are using Android, other used Fedora or Debian.
Kodachi Linux is the new member of this family. Kodachi is a live operating system that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card.
It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to:
- Use the Internet anonymously.
- All connections to the Internet are forced to go through the VPN then Tor network with DNS encryption.
- Leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly.
- Use state-of-the-art cryptographic and privacy tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.
This OS also includes a lot of tools privacy you will really appreciate, such as:
- Demonsaw (encrypted communication)
- KeePassX (password manager)
- Tox (peer-to-peer instant-messaging)
- OnionShare (sharing tool for use over Onion networks)
- VeraCrypt (encryption)
- zuluCrypt (encryption)
- OpenSnitch (firewall)
- Syncthing (file sharing)
- GnuNet (network protocol stack for building secure, distributed applications)
- i2p (anonymous network layer for peer-to-peer communication)
- Deny Hosts (deny by IP address)
- Noisy Crawler (random HTTP/DNS traffic noise in the background)
- Torified Shell (so you can even run commands through Tor)
As another interesting feature we want to bring your attention to NUKE:
Kodachi Nuke is a self destructing LUKSs partition you can use it on Kodachi only if Kodachi is installed and encrypted. Simply what it does it will encrypt your Kodachi with its own keys so you will have two passwords the one you entered during Kodachi encrypted installation and the new nuke password you will have to enter after running the Nuke script.
You will continue to use your first Kodachi password but once you are forced to open the system all you have to do is enter the nuke password and system will be completely destroyed ! no way to decrypt it even with your first password. So basically with nuke password you are commanding Kodachi to kill it self by destroying the encryption headers.
Kodachi is new operating systems that places the security of its users above all else. It is free and open-source software, because the fundamental operating system that constitutes the core infrastructure of our digital lives must be free and open-source in order to be trustworthy.
You can download and try Kodachi from the official website HERE
