64249[Fwd: Free DoD Encryption Wizard and free LPS Linux Live distro (was: ... Oracle Java 7 "upgrade" fiasco)]
- Apr 14 7:04 PMFYI. FWIW I've been announcing LPS here in the linux group for
every release since the first one. Both it and the Encryption
Wizard are free and definitely worth your while.
If you're a masochist and can tolerate getting your hands all
dirty navigating Yahoo NEO, you can search this group's messages
archives for articles I've posted citing the URLs to screenshots
at my website regarding LPS -- "LPS" would be in the "Subject:"

from the DoD there's a new release of the Lightweight Portable
Security LIVE Linux distro which is good for secure use at any
WiFi spot and elsewhere for home banking and much more; you'd
probably want the DeLuxe version for the extra features:
noting the entire Live distro loads into RAM and the CD can be
removed immediately after loading the LPS system.
FWIW, I've been using the LPS Live Linux distro since it was
first released; the latest version was released yesterday, Monday.
The info page about LPS is here:
Note it's free as is the DoD's free Encryption Wizard which is
Java-based for cross-platform use noting the manual and software
have been recently updated in 2014:

http://spi.dod.mil/docs/ewmanual.pdf manual, 2.4MB
That's from the USAF Research Labs at Wright-Patterson AFB. The
Wizard functions on all of *BSD, Linux, MacOS X, Solaris, UNIX and
Windows using Java.
FWIW, the "spi" in the above URLs stands for the Software Protection
Initiative of December 2001:
