      During LinuxTag 2004 the German Federal Office for Information Security
      (BSI) and the company credativ unveiled the Linux Government Desktop.
      The Linux Goverment Desktop has been developed within the scope of the
      project ERPOSS which evaluates Open Source Software in government
      environments.

      Composed entirely of free software the distribution is available as a
      Live CD as well as an Install CD Edition. While it's based on Debian
      Stable (Woody) the CD contains KDE 3.2.2, Mozilla and a special themed
      version of OpenOffice 1.1.1 which integrates seamlessly with KDE.

      One of the highlights brought by the Government Desktop is the fact that
      it saves the whole data on encrypted filesystems. Furthermore KMail is
      preconfigured to send and receive encrypted e-mail (GnuPG and S/MIME)
      and to make use of all kinds of authority certificates. The package is
      completed by integrated spam and virus protection and a
      preconfigured Personal Firewall.

      The Live CD enables the user to run the Linux Operating System without
      installing anything. Alternatively, the Install CD provides ways to
      circumvent tedious and long winded installation procedures.
