LiPoSe (Lightweight Portable Security) is a liveCD distro that the USAF
makes. It appears they customize it for different gov groups. They
finally released the source code, too.

But no Tor or other anonymizing tech, last time I checked, just secure
VPN to DOD network using their PKI. So maybe it is LiPoSe, if they need
dissidents to login to GIG. :-)

Does reference give any more details about the anonymizing tech, or
other software it includes?
