Using KNOPPIX just to surf online? Is it secure?
Posted on 2006-04-29
1. Also, about security, what are the benefits of KNOPPIX security wise if I just want to go surf the Internet? It doesnt leave traces or anything in the cache? I think thats what I heard...But I want to confirm this. I heard from somebody that if you load KNOPPIX CD just browse the Internet, is more secure? I heard it doesnt leave any cache or cookie traces one after ejecting KNOPPIX...
2. Now the how to use part of KNOPPIX....
Suppose I have Windows 2000, And I load Knoppix CD into the CD drive and it boots up, then everytime I have to set my Internet connection up everytime I load the Knoppix CD just to surf the net?? If thats the case, than thats a hassle. But its more secure though.Thats what I like about it..And If I dont want the KNOPPIX CD anymore running in the CD drive, how can I eject it or shut the PC down if I dont want to go back to Windows again? Or, if I want to go back to Windows, then how will I eject the CD and then go back to Windows again? Do I need to eject the KNOPPIX CD before rebooting back into Windows or what?
And what if I want to shutdown the computer completely? Should i just eject the CD first and then shutdown? Is there a shutdown command in KNOPPIX? If there is, should I do the command AND then eject the CD right away and the PC will turn off?
