People who are concerned about their privacy often use security-focused operating systems such as Qubes OS or Tails. However, when using these systems people might worry about whether the operating system itself has been compromised or whether its developers have been contacted by government agents to spy on their users. One guard against this sort of thing is called a canary - a document which, if changed, signals something has happened without explicitly stating what has happened as may be requires by non-disclosure agreements. The Qubes project has such a canary document which is periodically updated to let users know the project's status. "No warrants have ever been served to us with regard to the Qubes OS Project (e.g. to hand out the private signing keys or to introduce backdoors). We plan to publish the next of these canary statements in the first fourteen days of December 2021. Special note should be taken if no new canary is published by that time or if the list of statements changes without plausible explanation." The full document can be found on the project's news page.
