Tails - Live operating system which preserves privacy and anonymity

  •        101

Tails is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly. Tails relies on the Tor anonymity network to protect your privacy online. It encrypt and sign your emails and documents using the de facto standard OpenPGP either from Tails email client, text editor or file browser.

Tails - Live Operating System supports Privacy and Anonymity


Tails 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 and circumvent censorship. All connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network. It leaves no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly. It uses cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.

Minix - Operating System by Andrew S. Tanenbaum


MINIX 3 is a free, open-source, operating system designed to be highly reliable, flexible, and secure. It is based on a tiny microkernel running in kernel mode with the rest of the operating system running as a collection of isolated, protected, processes in user mode.

tock - A secure embedded operating system for Cortex-M based microcontrollers


Tock is an embedded operating system designed for running multiple concurrent, mutually distrustful applications on Cortex-M based embedded platforms. Tock's design centers around protection, both from potentially malicious applications and from device drivers. Tock uses two mechanisms to protect different components of the operating system. First, the kernel and device drivers are written in Rust, a systems programming language that provides compile-time memory safety, type safety and strict aliasing. Tock uses Rust to protect the kernel (e.g. the scheduler and hardware abstraction layer) from platform specific device drivers as well as isolate device drivers from each other. Second, Tock uses memory protection units to isolate applications from each other and the kernel. Tock is documented in the doc folder. Read through the guides there to learn about the overview and design of Tock, its implementation, and much more.

Manjaro - User-friendly Linux Distribution


Manjaro is a user-friendly Linux distribution based on the independently developed Arch operating system. Arch itself is renowned for being an exceptionally fast, powerful, and lightweight distribution that provides access to the very latest cutting edge – and bleeding edge – software. However, Arch is also aimed at more experienced or technically-minded users. Manjaro provides all the benefits of the Arch operating system combined with a focus on user-friendliness and accessibility.

redox - Redox: A Rust Operating System


Redox is an operating system written in Rust, a language with focus on safety and high performance. Redox, following the microkernel design, aims to be secure, usable, and free. Redox is inspired by previous kernels and operating systems, such as SeL4, MINIX, Plan 9, and BSD. Redox is not just a kernel, it's a full-featured Operating System, providing packages (memory allocator, file system, display manager, core utilities, etc.) that together make up a functional and convenient operating system. You can loosely think of it as the GNU or BSD ecosystem, but in a memory safe language and with modern technology. See this list for overview of the ecosystem.

RaspberryMatic - :house: A lightweight, Linux/buildroot-based distribution for running a HomeMatic CCU on single board computers (SBC) like the RaspberryPi, Tinkerboard, etc


The RaspberryMatic project is a collaborate effort to provide a lightweight, Linux/buildroot-based HomeMatic compatible distribution for embedded devices like the RaspberryPi or Tinkerboard. It is based on the Open-Central-Control-Unit-SDK (OCCU) provided by eQ-3 as part of the HomeMatic home automation platform. The RaspberryMatic distribution is provided as a full operating system image that can be flashed and then used in a RaspberryPi/Tinkerboard as the main operating system for controlling all HomeMatic compatible devices with full compatibility to a CCU device directly sold by eQ-3. As the RaspberryMatic project is an open source based project everyone is invited to contribute to this project. Please note, however, that functionality within the corresponding eQ-3 OCCU binaries can not be modified as the main HomeMatic services (rfd, ReGaHSS, HMServer, etc.) are provided in binary format by the OCCU project and not compiled from sources. Nevertheless, if you are a talented developer and want to contribute to the success of RaspberryMatic feel free to send over pull requests or report issues / enhancement requests.
