Septor

Last Update: 2019-05-22 08:21 UTC


Septor is a Linux distribution which provides users with a pre-configured computing environment for surfing the Internet anonymously. It is based on Debian's "Testing" branch and it uses Privoxy, a privacy-enhancing proxy, together with the Tor anonymity network to modify web page data and HTTP headers before the page is rendered by the browser. The distribution uses KDE Plasma as the preferred desktop environment and it also includes a launcher for downloading the latest Tor Browser, OnionShare for anonymous file sharing, and Ricochet for anonymous instant messaging.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 125 (75), 6 months: 81 (150), 3 months: 99 (121), 4 weeks: 114 (115), 1 week: 102 (113)

Average visitor rating: 7.84/10 from 25 review(s).

Clean, simple, easy to use right out of the box/usb stick. comes with a slew of very useful tools to keep your stuff private along with a great privacy help tool ( it tells you if various parts of your computer/net etc are secure and offers some hints on what to do you get your score up to 10/10)

First thing I did was get rid of Tor Browser and installed a normal stand-alone new Firefox, which works well. Every thing else works great. Smooths out the Debian install, which I never got to run correctly. Septor is the smallest full linux I have, it is almost 2 gigs smaller than Manjaro with the same main apps.

It's Debian with TBB installed and the desktop wallpaper changed. Why not just use Debian and install TBB yourself? If it's supposed to be for the anonymous minded (that's what TBB is aimed at) why on earth have email programs? You could, of course, use email accounts that don't have your personal information, but it's still odd. Why can't people that fork Debian (or whatever else) and claim to have created a 'useful' security distribution realise that most people want a thing that is as small as possible, boots without fail and is real quick. GIMP? Why? LibreOffice? Why? Huge slow DE? Why? Perhaps most laughable is a privacy distro that uses Facebook! This is yet another distribution created by a teenager in their bedroom who obviously has no idea about any of the complex issues involved in remaining as anonymous as it is even possible to in today's internet. Giving people the (false) impression that using Tor makes them safe is dangerously misleading. Tor always selects the fastest nodes, which are always running at speeds that only governments could afford to run, and have been running for years. If the entry and/or exiut node are controlled by the government your privacy immediately disappears. It would appear that the developer doesn't even realise that. Lastly, what's with all the one line self reviews in this list, each of which says it's the best thing ever and gives it 10 out of 10. Dodgy design and dodgy behaviour by a single teenage 'developer'.
