SIGINT: Ubuntu Privacy Remix
The Ubuntu Privacy Remix (UPR) project is presenting the second beta version of its live CD, at SIGINT 09, a conference organized in Cologne by the Chaos Computer Club (CCC). The conference is debating the topics of monitoring and political interference. The Ubuntu Privacy Remix (UPR) is based on a modified version of Ubuntu 9.04, the most popular Linux distribution.
UPR is intended to give personal data the best possible protection against unwanted intruders and to help people, particularly those with little technical savvy, to defend themselves effectively against monitoring, for example by blocking the installation of the "Bundestrojaner" (Federal Trojan) intelligence-gathering software planned by the German government.
