[tor-talk] tor-ramdisk 20120601 released
I want to announce to the list that a new release of tor-ramdisk is out.
Tor-ramdisk is an i686, x86_64 or MIPS uClibc-based micro Linux
distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an
environment that maximizes security and privacy. Security is enhanced by
hardening the kernel and binaries, and privacy is enhanced by forcing
logging to be off 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 or SCP.
This release incorporates major changes from upstream to all components
of tor-ramdisk: tor was updated to 0.2.2.36, libevent to 2.0.18, openssh
to 6.0p1, busybox to 1.20.0, uclibc to 0.9.33.2 and the kernel was
updated to 3.2.11 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.2.11-1.extras. The
MIPS port also incorporated these changes, but only for this
architecture was libevent update to 2.0.19 and the kernel to 3.2.5.
