The CryptoNAS project wants to bring data encryption to the masses. It provides two packages: CryptoNAS-Server and CryptoNAS-CD. The CryptoNAS-Server package adds hard disk encryption to a file server (running Samba, NFS, DAV, etc.) without annoying its users. The CryptoNAS-CD is targeted at users who want to set up an encrypting file server without bothering about complicated administration issues.
btfs can be used as /init for constructing a run-time environment before running the real init. It supports extracting compressed (*.cgz, *.cbz2) and uncompressed (*.co) cpios located on a compile-defined directory (/). Also, it creates a tmpfs filesystem as the new root, if / isn't one already and the purpose of the initramfs isn't for starting a system in another location (disk, network, etc.). That will allow for the data on / to be swapped to disk when swap devices are activated later.
VoiceBuntu (formerly Ubunterisk) is an Ubuntu-based live CD that uses Asterisk and VoiceOne to provide VoIP service without any system installation process. VoiceOne is a Web-based GUI for the Asterisk PBX. Ubunterisk can be used as a phone client as well as a PBX server. Ubunterisk can be administered either remotely or by accessing its local GUI. A capser-rw filesystem is used to store the system's data persistently.
