Anonym.OS LiveCD
Download via Sourceforge or LinuxTracker
Like sand through the hourglass, so are the vestiges of our privacy. From increased governmental surveilance to corporate content restrictions and data brokers, what you do, where you go, and who you talk to is of more interest to more people every day.

Anonym.OS is an OpenBSD 3.8 Live CD with strong tools for anonymizing and encrypting connections. Standard network applications are provided and configured to take advantage of the tor onion routing network.

Anonym.OS was first suggested by dr.kaos at Interzone 4 in Atlanta, March of 2005. Nearly a year and a lot of marathon coding sessions later, it's a reality and was released by elmore, fade, arcon, dr.kaos, digunix, atlas and beth of kaos.theory at Shmoocon 2006.

Building an Anonym.OS
Presentation by dr.kaos at Interz0ne IV, Atlanta GA, March 12, 2005

This talk discussed the process of hardening and reconfiguring a host to ensure that all ingress traffic is silently dropped/denied, and that all egress traffic is transparently encrypted and/or anonymized -- optimally both -- from a machine to its final destination.

Through this process, a host machine can be introduced to an arbitrary network (hotel broadband, WiFi hotspot, client network, etc.) without leaving any discernible fingerprints or telltale footprints. The talk focused primarily on Linux and BSD systems (incl. Mac OS X), though there was some limited discussion about acomplishing the same goals, to the greatest degree possible, on Windows as well.
