Linux Kodachi

Last Update: 2018-11-13 23:33 UTC


Linux Kodachi is a Debian-based distribution which can be run from a DVD or USB thumb drive. The distribution filters all network traffic through a VPN and the Tor network, obscuring the user's network location. The distribution attempts to clean up after itself, removing traces of its use from the computer.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 105 (99), 6 months: 69 (153), 3 months: 42 (272), 4 weeks: 33 (383), 1 week: 25 (472)

I would have LOVED for this OS to work but I couldn't even get it to install. Tried installing from different USB drives, different kinds of DVD, and even on 3 different systems. I even tried different download locations for 5.2 and different SSD's but nothing has fixed it. Would get to installing file 31 of 32 and sit for 2 hours at the longest. Another time would say install failed check drive media (or similar)... Live works but I need to install on hard drive for my purposes. I'll check back and see if it's just me or a few others having problems installing. Disappointed/10

I have been putzing around with this OS from early on. Then I thought it was an amazing concept. But the OS had a lot of "issues." The root password for one.

Not now. I downloaded 5.1 and installed it to a usb drive. I used Unetbootin. I first tried the native usb installer in Mint but Kodachi refused to boot. After I got that figured out I was able to boot into Kodachi just fine.

On my tower at home with an ethernet connection everything seemed to for great. However, I didn't get to deep into it to test the really fine points of what this OS may be able to do. But at first blush, the OS functioned very normally.

However I attempted to connect to the internet at MacDonald which has a 'captive' portal as they say. Nope, no going to work. I made a number of attempts all with no luck. The web site says one can use it that way, out in the real world, but it didn't seem to work for me.

So....what this OS really needs is a 'broken' web browser that will connect to ANYTHING! That is what Tails has and used for that it works fine. It just connects. Then one can move on to do what one does.

Adding the option of an encrypted partition on the usb drive would be nice. Tails has it and it works fine. And it is an option to use or not use but it is there if you want it.

Lastly, Kodachi has made excellent progress in a relatively short period of time. Keep up the good work. There is a tremendous need for internet security for users. Everyone with half a brain knows the internet is a very dangerous place. Get secure and stay secure.

The best Linux Security OS.
Equipaggiata con tutto il necessario per mantenere sicurezza e privacy. Comodi i numerosi script per gestire al meglio Tor, VPN e DNS. Ottima, oltre che per un utilizzo in live, anche per essere installata su disco.
