Hi everyone, We have just released Tin Hat 20080830. For those unfamiliar with Tin Hat, it is a linux distribution derived from hardened Gentoo which aims to provide a very secure, stable and fast Desktop environment that lives purely in RAM. This release includes bugfixes/updates to keep Tin Hat in sync with Gentoo, including updating the hardened kernel to the latest stable version: 2.6.25-hardened-r4. We've also added support for Bluetooth as well as *some* wireless adaptors --- the realtek rtl8187 works well, but the belkin rt2500usb, rt73usb, rt2x00usb chips do not. Tin Hat now supports RAID, LVM, FUSE and EncFS filesystems. Recall that while Tin Hat runs purely in RAM, it does allow mounting of encrypted hard drives. This support has now been extended to RAID and/or LVM volumes. Home page: http://opensource.dyc.edu/tinhat Freshmeat: http://freshmeat.net/projects/tinhat Anthony G.
