Qubes OS

Last Update: 2018-11-13 10:02 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 "plasma-desktop" package 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.

I don't understand why people comparing Qubes with Tails or another pentesting distros which for sure have different purpose. While pentesting distro is not suitable for everyday use with hundred or even thousand tools for attacking and not for protecting the system itself, which make the attack surface higher/terrible when those tools will be used to against/attack the owner from the bugs of those tools itself! Where Tails is absolutely sit on ram (amnesic system) not general OS, you have to be careful while doing this and that especially if it's related to clearnet stuff.

But Qubes OS is a general OS, suitable for everyday use on different subjects. It's still lack on certain area, but consider the amount it offer for target user, I don't see it outweight their benefits. You can run tails from Qubes. You can use Whonix which connected to tor network. Can use it as a pentesting distro, just install archlinux template (you have to compile it, not available by default on their repos!) and point into Blackarch/Archstrike repository and run it via standalone/appvm or even selected tools from katoolin in debian-10 (testing/buster), and make use of kali repository inside that. Qubes 4 is a bit different from the predecessor R3.2/R3.2.1, appvm run on PVH/HVM mode instead of PV mode in the previous release. I don't see any problem when installing Qubes when your hardware compatibility just about right on Qubes spec requirements.

Qubes showed promise a couple of years ago, but has lost a lot of its initial momentum. It isn't as secure or complete as Tails, or upcoming projects such as subgraph. Installs are still unstable on the whole, and the recent security concerns are worrying.

Downloaded it, set everything to default, installer error, PCI error, 20x times later finally installed, interface error, this error, that error, steep learning curve is understated. To get the masses to ditch windows it has to be user friendly. I have run Arch and have tried a multitude of distros, this one by far the hardest to get my head around.
