BitKey – Bitcoin Swiss Army Knife in a verifiably secure self-contained Live CD/USB. Supports air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. Makes offline cold storage (slightly more) practical. BitKey is a bootable system image based on Debian containing everything you need to perform highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions. You don’t need to install it to a hard drive because it runs live from RAM.

The idea was to see if we could use the TurnKey GNU/Linux build system to create a self-contained read-only CD/USB stick with everything you need to perform Bitcoin transactions with as much security as you wanted – including highly secure air-gapped Bitcoin transactions.

AnthillaOS – a Gentoo based appliance operating system. It can be used to build a normal, standalone appliance, or can be used to build structured and/or destructured Clusters in High Availability and Fault Tolerance.

Anthilla OS aims to be a complete Linux System image to serve HA and FT services distributed and replicated (virtualized or not) with a primary focus on bypass the real problem of any “System” (System in general sense),the drift towards chaos.

This, simply Using and without structural modification or package forks or custom developments, we want to use a normal Linux (recompiled Gentoo, with Genkernel kernel images, like System Rescue CD, or Sabayon) System, as custom Linux embedded System readonly as possible, separating configurations, and Data leaving System image untouched.

Using heavily Systemd and looking to CoreOS and Android, CyanogenMod, or Network Appliances Custom application can be added (we suggest, as additional image) on the Boot Volume BootExt and loaded at boot with some pluggable runlevel (thanks systemd)

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.
