Whonix aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity by helping you use your applications anonymously. A web browser, IRC client, word processor, and more come pre-configured with security in mind.
It is a complete operating system, designed to be used inside a host operating system. It is Free Software and based on Tor, Debian GNU/Linux, and security by isolation.
Whonix consists of two parts: One solely runs Tor and acts as a gateway, which we call Whonix-Gateway. The other, which we call Whonix-Workstation, is on a completely isolated network. This is security by isolation, and it averts many threats posed by malware, misbehaving applications, and user error. Only connections through Tor are possible. More Info »
