It could boot from CDROM or USB flash drive. The configuration could be saved in floppy or USB pen drive as the CDROM is read only. It has IPTables / Netfilter support connection tracking for firewalls. It does have facilty to create customized version of the Linux to suit your needs. User could add packages on their own preference.

Most of the code is complied using GCC. Kernel level security like chroot restrictions is provided by GRSecurity. Since graphical support is not available, the system requirement is very less. It could run loads of server related applications.
