  • TODO

Sensitive user data is protected by state-of-the-art cryptographic tools.

  • For example; kernel hardening, strong linux user account separation and numerous misc security settings
  • DNS spoofing results in traffic being diverted to the attacker's computer (or any other computer)
  • This is a security-focused general purpose memory allocator providing the malloc API along with various extensions. It provides substantial hardening against heap corruption vulnerabilities.
  • Currently only helps using shared folders with VirtualBox. Other virtualizers -- such as KVM shared folder setup -- might be possible in the future
  • See when Full Disk Encryption can -- and can not --protect your data.
