The AnonOS Projects are a plan to build a live Linux distribution custom-built for anons, with all the software they need. More than that, it is to make a kit that will teach newfags everything that has to be known during raids, such as using tools, gathering dox, making programs and generally succeeding in life. Also, we want to create a linux distro optimized for those who want to stay anonymous, such as protestors, or whistleblowers.
First of all, staying anonymous is extremely easy, yet the consequences for failing to maintain it will end in ruined lives. Also, newfags need to learn all the methods that 4chan & /b/ has used in their assaults, so we do not have to reinvent the wheel every single time. Plus leaving information, programs and browser history scattered around the computer will be problematic when everything needs to be wiped in less than 30 seconds.
If everything relating to Anonymous was stored in a seperate, bootable drive, the data could be easily taken care of in an instant. With such a kit, newfags would be much safer, more efficient, and will understand the ropes much more quickly. This project will also stretch far beyond Anonymous. Oppressed people need a way to stay safe from tracking and bypass censorship, and our tools may be quite influential in future protests.
With the same tools used to make desktop Linux, we could make an mirror system that utilizes the power of virtual appliances to create a “Load-and-forget” network, which could be useful in making a Beowulf computer cluster for large-scale computations, or a truly decentralized Wikileaks mirror system. (see Flavors of AnonOS, under “Atemoya” for more)
AnonOS is based on Fedora Linux, due to it's superior configurability, large range of support, and high security compared to Ubuntu. We also decided on Fedora because it uses "kickstart" configuration files to create live media, allowing developers to make the system just by declaring packages and using shell scripts in a tiny text file.
And with kickstarts, custom spins could be built by importing a stable kickstart and adding a few lines. This can provide instant localization when needed, and specific operations could add their own programs when needed.
For more info on kickstarts, and making a liveCD from them, go to developing.
How to help
If you find a bug, open a new ticket above and describe your problem.
If you have any software that you think are good, place a suggestion at Software, and we'll add them in the release.
If you want to actually develop, learn about fossil first: http://www.fossil-scm.org/index.html/doc/tip/www/quickstart.wiki
Then clone our development repo and make the changes you want in your local repo. Describe your changes to the maintainer at email@example.com . The maintainer will then assign you an account.
