Security Paranoid OS

Submitted Apr 11, 2019

In the wake of one data breach after another, and in this age of surveillance, security has become serious business. The trust on the big giants like Facebook, Google, etc has diminished over the years. Security has been a huge concern in the recent times for many of us, and a lot of them have grown a valid paranoia around security and privacy. The term “valid” signfies just not be a paranoid but to be methodical in your action.

And, there could be no better place to start than your OS itself. There has been a growing list of OS targeted towards security. We gather to discuss our ideas and concerns on this topic, discuss our methods, how we compartmentalize applications to fight vulnerabilties.

In the wake of one data breach after another, and in this age of surveillance, security has become serious business. The trust on the big giants like Facebook, Google, etc has diminished over the years. Security has been a huge concern in the recent times for many of us, and a lot of them have grown a valid paranoia around security and privacy. The term “valid” signfies just not be a paranoid but to be methodical in your action.

As we grow dependent more and more on internet-based services, the more vunerable are we becoming to exploits, and you can easily notice how in the recent times the exploits has affected a large number of people.

And, there could be no better place to start than your OS itself. There has been a growing list of OS targeted towards security. There are bunch of options these days, like TailOS, QubeOS, Silverblue, Whonix etc each behaving a bit differently but trying to acheive the same goal, Security & Privacy

We gather to discuss our ideas and concerns on this topic, discuss our methods, how we compartmentalize applications to fight vulnerabilties.
