MOFO Linux is an operating system optimized for defeating all major methods of internet censorship and surveillance used by governments, corporations, schools, and internet service providers. It is a tool created to empower people for exercising their inalienable rights to privacy, freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly, in accordance with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The system contains office, multimedia, and internet applications enabling you to read, write, watch, or listen to any media from anywhere with an internet connection.

MOFO Linux is designed for easy usage on home PCs, laptops, and any computers installed in internet cafes around the world. Use MOFO Linux to break free of authoritarian powers intending to control the flow of information or "own the truth." As of version 4.0, MOFO Linux is built upon an Ubuntu base, with all of the latest software for productivity and entertainment.

MOFO Linux has Encrypted DNS, OpenVPN, Softether, Tor, and I2P installed to provide anonymous and secure access to the internet. The system is designed for running from a bootable USB stick or "frugal install" on a hard drive / SSD. Browsing history and usage tracks are destroyed on shutdown.

Usage and installation options are many. MOFO Linux can be used as a boot disc, installed to USB or SD flash memory, or installed on a hard drive in a manner similar to other live Linux distros. A suggestion for easy portability is to install MOFO Linux to a flash drive using the included installer, UNETBOOTIN, or DD copy method." Use it as a pocket operating system, which will boot and run well on nearly every PC one is likely to encounter.

SYSTEM PASSWORDS

As of version 4.0, MOFO Linux is configured with one default user account, with the ability to switch to root. There are no passwords in the default MOFO Linux distro. You may create your own password, if desired, but it is not necessary for typical usage.

L2TP/IPsec VPN IN MOFO LINUX

Due to the removal of Openswan and dependencies from the Ubuntu repositories, L2TP/IPSec is not an available VPN. Strongswan is installed, providing IPSEC VPN connectivity.

SOFTETHER VPN

Softether is the newest VPN protocol available in MOFO Linux. It is capable of fast broadband data transfers, uses strong encryption, but is highly targeted by censorship authorities. Client software for Linux is still sparse, but MOFO Linux includes the official client with connectivity through manually entered shell commands.

LANTERN (Domain Fronting Proxy)

Lantern works well in restricted internet environments. Simply find "Lantern" in the Dash application search (the top icon on the desktop launcher). Start Lantern and it will automatically connect to remote servers and provide fast, unrestricted internet access through Firefox.

OPENVPN IS WELL SUPPORTED IN MOFO LINUX

To use an Open VPN service with MOFO Linux, follow these steps:

TOR, I2P, CJDNS DARKNET / ANONYMOUS NETWORKING

I2P is a new robust privacy and anonymity network. It is configured as a proxy, but does several other complex tasks to conceal identity and browsing activity. Tor is an older network, with a well developed infrastructure providing anonymity to internet users. For Tor, use the "Tor Browser" application, found on the launcher or by entering "Tor" in the Dash search field. For I2P, use the "I2P Controller" application, found by entering "I2P" in the Dash search field. These networks contain internally reachable, anonymized sites as well as exit nodes to the open internet.

The Tor Browser, Tor Messenger, and OnionShare applications are fully configured for routing through Tor. If you are in China or other countries which block encryption, use the Tor bridges and pluggable transports to defeat the blockage.

Cjdns is a global, decentralised, encrypted mesh networking protocol. Hyperboria is the largest of many networks using cjdns offering a vast volume of cyberspace separate from the main internet. It is extremely difficult to surveil or censor.

FILE SYSTEM ENCRYPTION: VERACRYPT, ZULUCRYPT, and ECRYPTFS

Veracrypt is the top multi-platform software for VERY STRONG file system encryption forked from Truecrypt. It has great features and performance - able to encrypt drives and directories, even hiding them from detection. It is compatible with Linux, Windows and Mac systems, so encrypted files may be created or accessed on just about any computer. Zulucrypt is a native Linux application for file and volume encryption also forked from Truecrypt.

Ecryptfs is an encrypted filesystem with support built into the Linux Kernel. It is fast, strong, and efficient enough to keep users' files safe from unwanted access. Use it to encrypt folders or whole drives which will hold sensitive data. Ecryptfs is the principal means of encrypting the home directory and other storage volumes in Linux.

It is suggested that users run MOFO Linux from a flash drive and keep a separate flashdrive partition for encrypted files. Another option is to use a separate drive and encrypt its entire contents, accessing it through Veracrypt. Doing that, it is possible to carry a large volume of data which is quite difficult to detect and even more difficult to decrypt. In theory, a well-arranged encrypted volume should be secure for centuries. Be careful to create strong passwords. Do not allow any secret keys to be compromised.

MULTMEDIA with ENHANCED AUDIO

The very good Ubuntu multimedia apps are enhanced with built-in audio equalization, compression, and limiting for extra punch in home theater / office presentation environments. Extra radio stations have been added to Rhythmbox for access to news, music, and political programming.

ENGLISH, ARABIC, AND CHINESE LANGUAGE SUPPORT

MOFO Linux 4.0 and above continues with language options introduced in MOFO Linux 3.0. MOFO defaults to English on startup, but Chinese and Arabic system languages may be selected from the Settings application. Multilanguage keyboard input is always available. To change the system language, select it in "Language support", then LOG OUT and LOG BACK IN without turning off the computer. The new language will then be activated.

Firefox may be switched between Chinese, Arabic, or English languages at any time by using the Tools -> Languages menu.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

MOFO Linux wishes to acknowledge and thank the developers creating Ubuntu Linux, the base system upon which MOFO Linux is built. Ubuntu provides incredibly smooth operation, fast perfomance, and a pleasant user interface quite suitable for building customized systems. The developers of the many cryptographic / VPN systems used by MOFO Linux get a nod too! Without OpenVPN, Tor, RSA, SSL, and other goodies, the world would be a much less free and more dangerous place.


Good Luck And Hang Tough,
