Release » Refractux GNU/Linux

================================

Refractux GNU/Linux is a "Devuan" "Refracta" pulseaudio free derivative that focuses on

providing common applications and services that most users will need instead of trying to provide for more specialized uses. It provides a basic desktop with simple applications that are easy to use.

The default install includes internet, graphic, multimedia, office software, various system tools and utilities

along with some "easy to use gui scripts" that i did in my spare time and a touched basic dark theme/icons.

Hundreds more applications are available from a trusted source and can be quickly and easily installed.

Re: Release » Refractux GNU/Linux

Interesting spin, seems you have packed in some programs that are not in the stable or testing repos.
For instance finalcrypt. The website for that program doesnt even have https enabled and the program uses java.
https://github.com/ron-from-nl/FinalCrypt

FinalCrypt - The No¹ One-Time Pad Encryption

Why FinalCrypt ?

    Today's cyber espionage comes from hidden spyware waiting for you to unlock your drive. Disk Encryption no longer protects!
    Even when you're logged on, unopened files have to remain encrypted. Only File Encryption stops spyware reading your files.
    Also most crypto software uses broken AES or asymmetric crypto soon broken by The Shor's Algorithm with Quantum Computers.
    Today's global cyber espionage can only be stopped by One-Time Pad File Encryption. That's why FinalCrypt.

Is AES broken ?

im not a security professional but after reading part of this:
https://crypto.stackexchange.com/questi … is-cracked
i decided to add finalcrypt in the distribution

Re: Release » Refractux GNU/Linux

neither am i.

Another unique approach to file encryption in this link from stackoverflow using perl6.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/540 … 4#54093334

and or shell level.

https://github.com/S2-/sshenc.sh/

& this is a good one time pad shell script: https://snippets.bentasker.co.uk/page-1 … -BASH.html

They were just some examples to think about.

There is also https://packages.debian.org/buster/otp

Generator for One Time Pads or Passwords
otp creates key and password lists for verification and security purposes in a variety of formats. Keys can be of any length, consist of digits or letters (capital or lower case), and alphabetic passwords can either be entirely random (most secure) or obey the digraph statistics of English text (easier to remember when transcribing, but less secure).

For computer applications, for example one-time login passwords, otp can create a file containing the MD5 signature of each of the generated keys. This permits the computer to verify keys without the need to store the keys in plaintext.

That was an interesting read. So doubling the key size may effectively block quantum attacks.

Re: Release » Refractux GNU/Linux

Just wanted to report here as well. I tried this version "Refractux", and like I have mentioned with Devuan and also Refracta OS, I couldn't get neither my Ethernet nor WiFI working on this OS with my newer AMD system. I did get a reply on the Devuan thread about the issue and that it's apparently a known issue. Just wanted to report here as well after I tried this one without success. Thank you!

That CPU and the wireless & internet cards are only supported by the kernel version in the beowulf-backports repository. The wireless card also needs the backported iwlwifi firmware package and the ethernet card probably needs the backported Realtek firmware package.

These are known issues and the package versions in the main beowulf repositories will never be bumped because that's not how Devuan works but thank you for your report :-)

Thank you BoneZ

Based on "Head_on_a_Stick" reply, i did a little patch that you can use to try solve your problem after install ["Refractux X 2020" iso + patch 01 + patch 02]

Re: Release » Refractux GNU/Linux

Very intresting! FYI another encryption tool is Tomb https://github.com/dyne/Tomb best GUI for it is this https://github.com/dyne/Tomb/tree/master/extras/gtomb but there is also Zulucrypt that supports a bunch of other encryption file formats. Let me know how goes and if you have suggestions how to improve!

Re: Release » Refractux GNU/Linux

This needs to be fixed, at least in "Devuan" derivatives section, where you need to update/edit the info to avoid waste of space in the topic.
