Linux "Lightweight Portable Security (LPS), created by USA's Department of Defense, is a small Linux live CD focusing on privacy and security, for this reason, it boots from a CD and executes from RAM, providing a web browser, a file manager and some interesing tools. LPS-Public turns an untrusted system into a trusted network client." Complete with backdoor so they can spy on all of us I'm sure!1!!

Wow, "encryption tool" screenshot is the most funniest and hilarious thing I've seen by far in this US DoD context, really. USA would *never* allow their services or citizens to encrypt files with unbreakable algorithm. Instead, they provide them with tool that they can control, with the cipher they can decrypt ... what a coincident!


The encryption tool is actually called eWizard. The free version uses 128-bit AES which is "technically" breakable but still computationally infeasible. In addition to just a passphrase or keyfile, it can also use the certificates and keys stored in a user's smart-card for the encryption keys.
