Trusted End Node Security (TENS) – (formerly: Lightweight Portable Security (LPS)) is a Linux distribution created by the United States Department of Defense. The main idea is to increase privacy and improve security when using the Internet by US government employees. The system provides an environment free of viruses and spyware, which will not leave any traces of activity on your computer.

– Firefox with Flash and Java plug-ins
– Encryption Wizard-Public – data encryption program
– remote connection client (Citrix, Microsoft or VMware View)
– SSH client
– OpenOffice.org package (Deluxe version)
– Adobe Reader (Deluxe version)

The system uses the Common Access Card for identification in the DoD (Department of Defense) network.

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).
