What is Whonix-Workstation ™?
Whonix-Workstation ™ Overview
Whonix-Workstation ™ is software. After installation of Whonix ™, Whonix-Workstation ™ will be connected to Whonix-Gateway ™. The latter runs Tor processes and acts as a gateway, while the former runs user applications on a completely isolated network.
Whonix-Workstation ™ is the place where all user applications like Tor Browser should be launched. This also ensures applications will utilize the Tor network because only Tor connections are permitted.
Whonix ™ also provides stream isolation for many pre-installed or custom-installed applications when they are used simultaneously in Whonix-Workstation ™. For example, Tor Browser, Hexchat, Thunderbird and several other applications use a dedicated Tor SocksPort, preventing identity (pseudonym) correlation that may otherwise occur when the same Tor circuit and exit relay are used.
