Hi whonix,

I must admit I’ve not paid too much attention to it. On closer inspection it sounds interesting, do you do a live CD or is actually installing it in a VM a requirement?

If you’re asking whether Whonix supports a live mode, the answer is yes. You can access the live mode as a boot option from the grub menu:

Whonix Live Mode

If you are referring to a live ISO, similar to a live USB then the answer is also Yes, we do. However, it’s not available with our current .iso as it’s still under development. Instead, you can start with Debian, transform it into Kicksecure (another Whonix project which focuses solely on security and is used as a host). Once that’s done, Kicksecure provides a live mode, which permits live mode usage on a USB.

Subsequently, you can install any hypervisor of your preference inside the Kicksecure USB. (Remember to disable the live mode when doing this.) After installation, you can then install Whonix within the hypervisor and re-enable the live mode.

Ok, thanks for that I’ll take a look :slight_smile:
