This is a repost of what WhonixQubes ( https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=269 ) posted on various mailing lists ( https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,392.msg3667.html#msg3667 ).
With the help of several kind people in the Whonix & Qubes communities, I
have successfully integrated the Qubes + Whonix operating systems
For those who would prefer Whonix as an alternative to TorVM in Qubes,
this option is now available to you.
This initial Qubes + Whonix configuration is achived using current versions:
– Qubes R2rc2 & Whonix 8.2
Qubes + Whonix currently exists as a customized dual HVM configuration:
– Whonix-Gateway HVM + Whonix-Workstation HVM
A simple networking setup for Qubes + Whonix would look like:
– NetVM <- FirewallVM <- Whonix-Gateway <- Whonix-Workstation
Where, for example, the Whonix-Gateway conceptually replaces TorVM as your
Tor ProxyVM, and Whonix-Workstation conceptually replaces your standard
You can get the Qubes + Whonix step-by-step instructions and more info here:
All suggestions and feedback are welcome!
I look forward to helping make Qubes + Whonix integration even tighter and
more seamless throughout the future.
If you’re interested in the future growth of the Qubes + Whonix platform,
then please join in with us to actively further this goal.
For example, when ProxyVM support is added to the Qubes Debian Template,
we can take Qubes + Whonix beyond the current HVM limitation and utilize a
naitive ProxyVM + AppVM setup for Whonix.
Thank you again to everyone who helped me bring the first known successful
Qubes + Whonix configuration to the world…
Patrick, Joanna, Marek, Jason, Axon, cprise, and everyone else who has
helped! Thank you!
P.S. Qubes + Whonix 9 support is coming soon!
