I want to announce to the list that a new release of tor-ramdisk is out.
Tor-ramdisk is an i686 or x86_64 uClibc-based micro Linux distribution
whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that
maximizes security and privacy. Security is enhanced by hardening the
kernel and binaries, and privacy is enhanced by forcing logging to be
off at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to
minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory,
no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file
and the private RSA key, which may be exported/imported by FTP or SCP.
Tor was updated to 0.2.6.7 and the kernel was updated to 3.19.3 +
Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.19.3-2.extras. All other components remain
the same as in the previous release.
