Tin Hat is a Linux distribution derived from hardened Gentoo. It aims to provide a very secure, stable, and fast desktop environment that lives purely in RAM. Tin Hat boots from CD, or optionally USB pen drive, but it is not a LiveCD in that it does not mount any file system from the boot device. Rather, Tin Hat employs a massive squashfs image which expands into tmpfs upon booting. This makes for long boot times, but remarkable speeds during human-computer interaction.
Krypt is a simple application that sits in the system tray and provides easy access to the list of volumes encrypted with LUKS. It is possible to quickly decrypt, encrypt back, mount, and umount such devices. It also monitors HAL activity, and responds by showing a pop-up with password prompt. When the password is provided, KDE's media manager kicks in and does its job. Passwords for volumes can be stored either in a configuration file or in KDE Wallet.
Javeau is a small tool meant to provide an easy way to create and use encrypted directories, using strong cryptography and a simple interface. It works under Java 6. Data stored in these folders are encrypted and safe (using 256 bit encryption); they can be accessed only by the user (by providing the password used to create the folder), and their integrity is checked to prevent data tampering. The application sports a convenient file-manager-like interface, is very fast and small, and is completely cross-platform: you can access your encrypted storage everywhere you can run a Java 6 VM.
Pidgin-paranoia is a plugin for Pidgin (formerly known as Gaim) that provides information-theoretically secure encrypted conversations using one-time pads. Because the plugin uses a one-time pad where the secret key has the same length as the message and the key is only used once, the encryption is information-theoretically secure. This means that from the encrypted messages the contents of the messages are not revealed. In short: If you use truly random numbers to generate the key files, and if you keep them perfectly secret, one-time pads can not be broken.
