  • TODO

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

  1. For example; kernel hardening, strong linux user account separation and numerous misc security settings
  2. DNS spoofing results in traffic being diverted to the attacker's computer (or any other computer)
  3. 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.
  4. Currently only helps using shared folders with VirtualBox. Other virtualizers -- such as KVM shared folder setup -- might be possible in the future
  5. See when Full Disk Encryption can -- and can not --protect your data.
