Question Linux distro with Keepass + Truecrypt? For a secure banking terminal...


Hi,
Besides messing around with upgrading my TiVo, I'm completely new to Linux so I apologize in advance for my noob question:

Basically I'm looking for a LiveCD that I can use as a secure banking terminal.
It would need Keepass (to access my password file), Truecrypt (to access encrypted documents) and Firefox to surf to the banking sites.

Does such a thing exist?
I like the idea of a LiveCD to avoid trojans / keyloggers / etc.

Thanks for any help you can provide...

Well your question really sparked my curiousity, there are ways to install truecrypt on a live CD, but I think I found something better for you:

read this story:
http://www.wired.com/science/discove.../2006/01/70017

and you can download the live CD over here:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/anonym-os/

I think this is as security heavy as you will get.

hopefully this helps.

Thanks for your reply, izquierdista. i didn't know about that project. I also found one called Incognito, which uses Tor+ Privoxy, etc. It has Truecrypt in it, but not KeepassX.

seems pretty cool...

Did you get incognito to work?
Where did you download it from?


I am interested in installing it on a USB drive but when I followed the instructions on their page about running the CD and then pressing the button to install it on my USB drive, it did installl but I didnt know how to boot off my USB drive,

the version i used came from the website of Pat Double (who maintains the distro) located here:

http://www.patdouble.com/index.php?o...d=11&Itemid=18

Although, I only used the LiveCD and haven't tried installing it to a USB drive yet (my next step). I'll let you know if I get that working....
