Kodachi Linux icon An Open Source VPN server security management Linux operating system that uses GNOME

Kodachi Linux is an open source and free distribution of Linux based on the award winning Debian GNU/Linux operating system and built around the modern GNOME desktop environment. It is an anonymous, secure and anti forensic OS.

Distributed as a 64-bit Live DVD

This custom Debian-based operating system can be downloaded from its official homepage or via Softpedia (see download link above) as a single Live DVD ISO image that has been engineered to support only 64-bit (x86_64) hardware platforms.

In order to use it, users must burn the ISO image onto a blank DVD disc using any CD/DVD burning software, or write it on a USB flash drive of 4G or higher capacity in order to boot it from the BIOS of a computer.

Boot options

The boot menu is quite complex and will allow the user to run the live environment with default boot options, with the nosmp and noapic options, with the smp and noapic options, with splash screen, or in failsafe mode.

In addition, you can drop to a shell prompt, perform a system memory diagnostic test, as well as to boot an existing operating system that is installed on the first disk drive.

Slick desktop environment powered by GNOME 3

Kodachi Linux’s desktop environment is pretty slick, powered by GNOME 3, as it uses no panels, but only a dock (application launcher) located on the bottom edge of the screen, as well as a bunch of system monitoring widgets.

From the dock you can start, stop or restart the VPN (Virtual Private Network) service incorporated into the distribution, as well as to connect to a Tor network that is more appropriate to your current location.

Bottom line

Using GNOME (with GNOME Shell) as its default desktop environment, Kodachi Linux provides a secure, anonymous and anti-forensic operating system that features a VPN connection, a Tor connection, and a DNScrypt service.
