Host Security[edit]

Whonix without Physical Isolation[edit]

Affects Standard / Download version (host+VM+VM). Does not affect Whonix with Physical Isolation.

Robert Ransom pointed out: "The main lesson of Bug #6537: Possible timing side-channel in router and Bug #6538: Use bit-twiddling tricks to make choose-by-bandwith algorithm even more was that Tor is not designed to keep various sensitive pieces of information secret from other native-code programs running on the same physical processor."

We believe security software like Whonix needs to remain open source and independent. Would you help sustain and grow the project? Learn more about our 12 year success story and maybe DONATE!
