kha0S Linux - Better Living Through Extreme Paranoia

Jun 30, 1999, 14:51 (5 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Dave Whitinger)

From the kha0s website:

It is the desire of those involved in the development of kha0S to produce the most secure Linux distribution possible. This is not to say that the major distros are inherently insecure. However, we cannot help but notice the limited attention these distributions have paid to the issue of strong cryptography. kha0S was born to fill this gap.

kha0S has no delusions of grandeur. We do not seek to garner huge portions of the Linux market share (we shudder to think that there is such a thing), nor do we exist to point out the failings of other Linux distributions.

Due to U.S. restrictions on the export of cryptographic material, 0.99-pre4 is not available at ftp.kha0s.org. We are working with an attorney in order to determine if and how we will be able to distribute kha0s from the Unitied States.
