HulaHoop added a comment to T530: CPU-induced latency Covert Channel Countermeasures.

When an implementation is decided, let's decide if we can include this in security-misc for use on Linux hosts and Kicksecure. We would need some way in detecting the active NIC since on wireless systems wlan0 is the interface of choice and not eth0

HulaHoop added a comment to T530: CPU-induced latency Covert Channel Countermeasures.

tc-netem is a utility that is part of the iproute2 package in Debian. It leverages functionality already built into Linux and userspace utilities to simulate networks including packet delays and loss.

marmarek added a comment to T709: port Whonix package build process to Qubes package build process.

To build a package with qubes-builder, you need to add Makefile.builder file with just one line: DEBIAN_BUILD_DIRS := debian. This will tell qubes-builder that given repository contains Debian package.
Alternatively, if that would be too much of a problem, it should be easy to add an option that do auto detection (probably just looks for debian directory).

Patrick changed the status of T678: tb-updater onion mirros downloads support from Open to testing-in-next-build-required.

With TPO infrastructure using onions, its now a good idea to switch tb-updater to check for version info and downloads to these more secure mirrors.
