Qubes OS: A Linux Distro For Security And Virtualization
We like to think that there is a Linux distribution for everything. There is a distribution for browsing the web, one for playing video games, one for privacy, and there is one for security – Qubes OS.
Based on the virtualization software Xen, Qubes OS composed of several light-weight virtual machines, each is isolated from the admin system and is dedicated to a special task, such as working, Internet browsing, personal activities, etc. The security comes from this virtualization process: each virtual machine comes with its own web browser, file system, etc., making sure that the different parts of your life are separated from each other, and therefore unreachable in case of breach. It is also very easy to create your own VMs, making the experience perfectly suited for your needs.
