OSNews, Generic OSes "Whonix is a project to build an operating system that will offer the maximum privacy and anonymity possible straight out of the box. Its creator, 'Adrelanos', says the aim is to make it as hard as possible for privacy-conscious users to make missteps when it comes to remaining anonymous. 'It also provides loads of documentation and possibilities for interested users to make it even more secure,' he says." We've already covered Whonix before.

VMs still borrow services from the host environment (see the example posted below).


...but so does OpenVZ (and LXC), even more so than Virtualbox since they are on the OS-level. Wouldn't they be even easier to break out of? Also, OpenVZ is a ginormous 3rd party kernel patch and I'm not sure how great that is for security ;)

That said, I do agree that OpenVZ/LXC would probably be a more efficient solution for this use case.
