Apartheid Linux – a minimal anti-forensic live CD, based on a stripped down version of Debian Jessie with the light and nimble LXDE desktop environment. Built for privacy, Apartheid comes with a working and properly configured version of the Tor Browser. Since the OS is run from RAM, no trace of Tor usage is found on the computer, and no data can of course be written to the CD.

Apartheid Linux can be installed to the hard drive using the «refractainstaller» tool. It can also be installed to a USB stick.

Apartheid Linux is compatible with Debian, and can be turned into a regular Debian install. The biggest difference is that Apartheid comes pre-configured and supports more hardware.

The first version of Apartheid Linux was based on PCLinuxOS, the latest ones on Debian.
