Minimalistic Debian GNU/Linux live system without access to internal disks
Disklessian is a Debian GNU/Linux based live system with
Xfce desktop. Access to internal disks is disabled in the
The license for Disklessian is exactly the same license as used for Debian GNU/Linux itself, see http://www.debian.org.
Disklessian is mainly intended for online banking.
Disabling any access to internal disks in the kernel prevents malicious software probably present on the internal hard disks from starting.
I do not provide a binary image. The
disklessian-date.tar.gz archive contains scripts and data
files you need to build an image.
I would not use a binary image provided by a relatively unknown publisher for online banking, so you shouldn't.
From 2008 til 2016 the Heise-Verlag — a german
computer magazines publisher — provided c’t Bankix, a GNU/Linux live
system for online banking based on Ubuntu.
Unfortunately c’t Bankix is no longer supported, but the kernel patch to disable access to internal disk drives was published.
While working on DKtoolian I got some experience in building
Debian based live systems. So I decided to create Disklessian as a
partial replacement for c’t Bankix.
Disklessian only supports online banking in the web browser, no financial applications were added.
It's a Debian GNU/Linux with Xfce desktop, access to internal disk drives is disabled.
This project does not provide live system images, it provides
the instructions, scripts and data files to build an image.
I would not use a binary image from a relatively unknown publisher for online banking, so you shouldn't.
Instead visit a Debian GNU/Linux user nearby and ask her/him to produce a live system image for you.
Other people with good reputation — i.e. computer magazines publishers — are invited to download and review the scripts and data files, build and provide localized Disklessian images to the public.
Building a Disklessian live system requires some time, as we compile a kernel and build a live system.
