Qubes OS

Last Update: 2018-03-29 00:04 UTC


Qubes OS is a security-oriented, Fedora-based desktop Linux distribution whose main concept is "security by isolation" by using domains implemented as lightweight Xen virtual machines. It attempts to combine two contradictory goals: how to make the isolation between domains as strong as possible, mainly due to clever architecture that minimises the amount of trusted code, and how to make this isolation as seamless and easy as possible.

Table Notes and Explanations
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kde-workspace" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Finally got a chance to install Qubes 4.0. Well done Qubes team!! Does everything a reasonably secure OS should do. It also makes it easy to know which window is what by the use of the window border coloring scheme.

Please be aware the installation time is a little more than many might be use to, and IMHO the use of SSD(s) is a must. Distro is about 4.5 GB currently, and it all gets installed. I used 16 GB RAM, and multiple SSDs in a mod’d ThinkPad T430 with i7 @2.9 GHz.

The biggest learning curves I believe for most users will be the shift+ctrl+(c or v) to cut and past between various dom & vm, along with remembering the isolation between USB and the rest of the vms. Which will take about 10 minutes of use to get use to.

Please keep in mind this is a reasonable secure OS, so review the HCL on the Qubes-OS.org site, since it is not designed to support a huge variety of external devices and you don’t install items or sw for the most part, into Dom0. Rather the installation is into the vm templates.

Take an hour or two and do a search of the videos on the OS from Joanna Rutkowska to really get a good understanding of the security design principles of Qubes.

All in all, it’s quite impressive release, and my new daily driver. Kudos to the entire Qubes team!

Just started using it about a week ago. Configuring it was a lot harder than it needed to be because the documentation, while not bad, is all over the place and a bit out of date. It doesn't seem to support my USB to HDMI interface (for my second monitor), but it does support my USB to Ethernet adapter. I have one HDMI monitor going (with the built-in port in my laptop), so that's good. I was able to set up a separate VM for USB devices and found a way to mount individual flash drives on individual VMs (by command-line, unfortunately, since the desktop widget doesn't seem to work right). Audio works both internally and through the HDMI port. It's pretty slick and (so far) Debian and Fedora updates can be done within the Xen desktop interface - a neat trick. I've only installed 2 packages (on Debian) so far: Signal - success and Evolution - failure (weird missing folder errors. Not a great success rate, but we'll see. Definitely not for the faint of heart setting it up, but if you're persistent and have a fairly recent machine, you can probably make it work. If security is your goal, this is the Lamborghini of operating systems and, if properly configured, is pretty easy to use. Nice. (Tips: Leave the network setting blank in the template VMs but if you can't get the templates to update, put qubes-updates-proxy in the Services tab of the sys-net VM. Also, use "qvm-block attach sys-usb: to mount a flash drive to a VM).

I've been using Qubes for about 18 months, on a laptop and a desktop machine, booting each from separate 64Gb usb sticks. Installation proved trouble free with the desktop but the Nvidia card on the laptop caused some problems. Fortunately the Qubes documentation provided a workaround for these.

The system is used exclusively for secure internet access and I do feel the set-up is significantly more secure than using a multi-use (ie. one used for general browsing, email access etc.) Windows or Linux machine. I particularly like the disposable VMs, which I find very useful.

For specific, secure use, I haven't found anything better.
