The Lightweight Portable Security was designed by the US Air Force for ultra secure communications via LIve CD. It's a small download, although larger than most Puppy relases. There are base & deluxe (Adobe Reader & Libre Office) options, plus the same options for non-PAE enabled computers (very older models).

 

On 15 June 2011: LPS-Remote Access was certified by AFNIC to connect to the GIG for general telecommuting use.

 

On 17, March 2014 a new version was released to the general public. There is usually a new version released each year, though there are no set release schedules. However each release included an upgraded Firefox & multiple security additions. There is also an encryption wizard, even for home users.

 

Guidance is plentiful on the site.

 

For best possible security, as noted on the page, it's best to reboot before making transactions if one has been browsing and/or has visited risky sites. Any possibly infections will be cleared & you'll begin with a clean OS.

I have used this for around 2 years & perform many transactions with this fantastic OS.

I just checked the download links, all 4 of them, they worked fine for me. Did you click the link(s) followed by 11 April 2014?

 

As to whether they work outside of the US, I can't say. Maybe other members can comment on that, but I've never had issues with downloading or using the OS, except once trying to boot one designed for PAE on an unsupported (non-PAE) machine,

 

No, the NSA won't spy on you, unless they're tailing you anyway. There are some sublinks that requires priviledge to access, but this is a public release, as indicated in it's name. Earlier today, I tested it out on the same SD card that I had Puppy on, using Universal USB Installer. I also logged onto the forum today to respond to a post using the portable OS.

Viewed that, I cannot see why it wouldn't load, unless it's locked to US distribution only. Did you try previous versions?

 

I liked the ending though :-) Cool....

Yes, they're the same & has been for years. The site only updates the versions, not the page in it's entirety. It's been the same since 2011.
