Tor-ramdisk is an i686 uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Security is enhanced by employing a monolithically compiled GRSEC/PAX patched kernel and hardened system tools. Privacy is enhanced by turning off logging at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key which may be exported/imported by FTP. x86 version.
Changes: Tor was updated to 0.2.2.37, BusyBox to 1.20.1, and the kernel to 3.4.2 plus Gentoo’s hardened-patches-3.4.2-2.extras. The MIPS port also incorporated these changes, but for this architecture the kernel was kept at vanilla 3.2.5.
