Lightweight Portable Security – a Linux live distribution developed by the United States Department of Defense’s Software Protection Initiative that is designed to serve as a secure end node.

LPS runs in live mode and boots only in RAM, and supports DoD-approved Common Access Card (CAC) readers, as required for authenticating users on DoD networks. LPS is designed to run from read-only media and without any persistent storage. Any malware that might infect a computer can only run within that session.

It features a minimal set of applications such as Firefox web browser and an encryption wizard for encrypting and decrypting personal files, on the top of Xfce desktop environment.

LPS-Public is a safe, general-purpose solution for using web-based applications and accessing CAC and PIV-enabled web pages.
LPS-Public Deluxe includes the open-source LibreOffice software suite, and Adobe Reader.

Lightweight Portable Security has been re-named in 2017 to Trusted End Node Security (TENS).
