Just remember if you have your router locked down with MAC Address filtering to turn off the MAC address spoofing or you'll not be able to get onto the interweb. I was playing around with a Live USB of TAILS the other day and the XP Look was really cool. Even had the little IE icon for your Iceweasel browser, LOL. I'll probably keep a Live USB around for those times when I want to get onto the interweb in Public to see what's going on but don't want to risk my laptop's security.No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.

Anything that uses TOR should -never- be considered to be a security tool. If you're not talking SSL (i.e. using an encrypted channel) to talk to another party, then you're potentially exposing your credentials to multiple proxied connections - i.e. your data is passing, readably, through more hands not fewer. And even for SSL stuff, if the keys in use aren't strong enough, then your data packets could be cracked open.
It comes with some handy security encryption tools - but if you're running from a LiveCD, you can't save any keys of your own back to media (so if you want to do this, use a Live USB - and keep copies of the keys somewhere secure).
Don't misunderstand me here, though - I think this is a quality piece of kit. As far as anonymity goes it's probably as good as it gets. 100% of NSA leakers hiding in Russia cannot be wrong.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
