Trusted End Node Security


Last Update: 2023-01-30 01:13 UTC



Trusted End Node Security (TENS), previously called Lightweight Portable Security (LPS), is a Linux-based live CD with a goal of allowing users to work on a computer without the risk of exposing their credentials and private data to malware, key loggers and other Internet-era ills. It includes a minimal set of applications and utilities, such as the Firefox web browser or an encryption wizard for encrypting and decrypting personal files. The live CD is a product produced by the United States of America's Department of Defence and is part of that organization's Software Protection Initiative.

Actually the TENS could be installed on HD/SSD which makes life a lot easier.

Unfortunate that the development has ended, it's a loss for the public.

I've used this in several 32 bit versions and like the concept. But I often use lower powered computers which like simple Linux systems, eg TinyCore. I thought this might be the same being deliberately 'simplified' but unfortunately it always took ages to load so using as a 'quick and dirty' way of doing a few fast tasks on the internet was hardly feasible.
