Lightweight Portable Security 1.3.6
LPS-Public Deluxe ISO image, version 1.3.6Lightweight Portable Security (LPS), created by USA's Department of Defense, is a small Linux live CD focusing on privacy and security while using online services.
Lightweight Portable Security (LPS) is a Linux-based live CD with a goal of allowing users to work on a computer without the risk of exposing their credentials and private data to malware, key loggers and other Internet-era ills. It includes a minimal set of applications and utilities, such as the Firefox web browser or an encryption wizard for encrypting and decrypting personal files. The live CD is a product produced by the United States of America's Department of Defense and is part of that organization's Software Protection Initiative.
This version is the same as the LPS-Public edition, but also includes OpenOffice and Adobe Reader software.
Using a USB flash stick to save files you have downloaded:
After inserting a USB flash stick into a running session of LPS, it will be automatically mounted to /mnt/usbdevices. Most likely, your flash stick will appear at /mnt/usbdevices/sda1. Look for the icon on the desktop after the device is mounted or use the file browser to access the device. LPS supports FAT, FAT32, and NTFS formatted devices.
Note: If you booted from a USB flash stick, do not use this device to store data.
Creating your own LPS on USB Flash Stick using Windows:
Do not boot LPS; simply insert the LPS CD and open it under Windows Explorer. The LPS CD should contain a directory called "InstallToUSB". Connect a USB flash stick to your computer and note its drive letter. Next, run the "USBInstall.bat" script. Follow the prompts and it should install LPS to the flash stick.
Special notes for creating your own LPS on USB:
The installation script can format the USB stick. This is highly recommended, but note that it destroys any data previously on the drive.
The format utility requires admin rights.
This process only works with Windows computers.
