Thanks for that, it works great. 
Is there someplace where I can read docs specific to qubes 4.0?

Take a look at qvm-pool tool. It allows you to create additional storage
pools, for example on a secondary disk (here mounted on /mnt/external).
For example:

qvm-pool -a ext file -o dir_path=/mnt/external

("ext" is freely chosen name)

Then, you can create new VMs there:

qvm-create -P ext -l red some-vm

If you want to migrate VMs between pools, it isn't directly possible.
But you can clone VM to a different storage pool (see qvm-clone).

More on this will be in a separate article.

For reference, pasting qvm-pool help here:

[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-pool --help
usage: qvm-pool [-h] [--verbose] [--quiet] [-o options]
[-l | -i POOLNAME | -a NAME DRIVER | -r NAME | 
--help-drivers]

Manages Qubes pools and their options

optional arguments:
  -h, --helpshow this help message and exit
  --verbose, -v increase verbosity
  --quiet, -q   decrease verbosity
  -o optionscomma-separated list of driver options
  -l, --listlist all pools and exit (default action)
  -i POOLNAME, --info POOLNAME
print pool info and exit
  -a NAME DRIVER, --add NAME DRIVER
add pool
  -r NAME, --remove NAME
remove pool
  --help-driverslist all drivers with their options and exit

[user@dom0 ~]$ qvm-pool --help-drivers
DRIVEROPTIONS
file  revisions_to_keep, dir_path
linux-kernel  dir_path
lvm_thin  volume_group, thin_pool, revisions_to_keep

If you want to store some templates there, and/or a lot of VMs, I
recommend "lvm_thin" driver (you need to create LVM volume group, then
thin pool manually). But for just few VMs, "file" driver should be
enough.

A work-around: changing the netVM of whonix-gw to sys-firewall allows
whonix-gw to start without the qrexec issue. Then shutting it down and
using the correct netVM that is sys-whonix everything works.

You can convert the disk to raw format and then try to use it in a qube.
Something like 'qvm-img convert -S -O raw  '
Then configure a new qube and use the new raw img as root.img
The chances of this working are dependent on what OS is involved - some
wont boot given a substantial hardware change, some may require
relicensing.

[qubes-users] Qubes Live Images

2017-10-16 Thread Unman
I had some enforced spare time last week and dusted off some old Live
images for r3.2. They need tidying up but are usable now.

There are two iso images, suitable for burning to DVD or USB.
Both use Debian templates.
The smaller (2GB) is pretty vanilla, with some additional non-free
drivers for wifi adapters.
The larger (2.4GB) has a TorVM, and Tor Browser in an online qube.
There are restrictive iptables on sys-net and TorVM, and MAC spoofing
set on sys-net. The offline qube has libre office and veracrypt
installed.

The menu system is simple, and wont update if you create new qubes.
You'll need to use 'qvm-run -a  ', or practice working with
the mysteries of xdg menus.

Both images will run(sort of) in 4GB RAM - 8 is better.

If you use DVD then get used to the sound of the disc thrashing. The
faster DVD drive you have the better. (That said they work reasonably well
on an old MacBook with 8GB RAM.) You also need patience - generally it
seems better to start new qubes discretely.

Running from USB is fine. If you have ample RAM you'll forget it's a
live system, unless you hammer the (limited) free disk space.

Both images are available from http://qubes.3isec.org - hashes and
signatures to check included.

I hope to have updated versions ready for 4.0-rc2, along with a tidy build
system, and (maybe) an installer.

Cheers

I've found the way to do it in this document:

It works fine.

Also, there was an error in this libvirt.rst document, it states that it looks

Hi,
I have similar error. In my case this error sometimes probably causes restart 
of computer.

But if it had been already installed  previously, you should add the option

In my case the command did not work in one step, I had to divide it in two

sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community
qubes-template-whonix-ws



sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community

Re: AW: Re: [qubes-users] AW: Idea for (resonable secure) cloud-storage usage with Qubes

2017-10-16 Thread David Hobach

Hi again,

On 10/15/2017 08:37 PM, '[799]' via qubes-users wrote:

I think you have some misconceptions here
- the main one being why people tend to use
Qubes OS: Segregation of data to application-
specific domains, i.e. impact of a domain
compromise is limited.


You are right, regarding why people use Qubes.
But depending on specific workflows there is a need to either work with cloud 
storage for collaboration or to switch the OS completely for this use case.


Ok, that's something I can understand. So far I was under the impression 
that all of your VMs were using that cloud backed storage.



Think about a (cloud based or on premise) storage service which is used by 
several people.
My goal is to work 100% in Qubes and I think that splitting access of data and 
local storage offers a better security than having the data synced and stored 
in one AppVM.
And I tried to build something that makes it easier to access data from various 
VMs in an easy way (knowing that it is less secure than using qvm-copy-to-vm).
But using some scripts we can reduce the attack surface on nfs in such a way, 
that we only enable NFS/open ports when access is needed.
I can't see how this approach is less secure than using one VM for 
syncing/storing/accessing the data?


The point here is that it's not much more secure neither. In fact you 
might even introduce unwanted mistakes (mistakenly opening ports to one 
of your other VMs e.g.), which ultimately could lead to the compromise 
to one of your other VMs.


Attacking a nfs implementation shouldn't be too hard for a dedicated 
attacker, i.e. you can bet that a compromise of any of your 
nfs-connected VMs would lead to a compromise of _at least_ all of your 
nfs connected VMs. Which is equal or worse than what you had without 
that idea.


So the standard attack path would be:
other OS --> nfs-client VM --> other nfs VMs


Your idea however makes your Qubes
installation vulnerable to: - Any attacks
originating from that OS ("files should still be
accessible/decryption from other Operating
systems")


True, but wouldn't this mean that the AppVM which is working as NFS Client must 
be compromised before NFS is attacked?


Yes, also holds for the standard Qubes OS model though (you running your 
nfs client in the same domain where you have your nfs data).



Nfs-based attacks (basically all your AppVMs
using nfs will be vulnerable to all nfs
vulnerabilities


NFS access to the server is allowed on a per VM basis (firewall allow per IP), 
shouldn't this be enough to reduce NFS attack surface?


No. Protocol & implementation vulnerabilities exist.


encfs based attacks which people can even
find on wikipedia.


Yes true, it is a shame, that we still don't have a multiplatform open source 
encryption standard that could maybe also be adapted by cloud storage providers.
But as mentioned the idea could also be implemented with other encryption 
solutions like CryFS, ...


I don't know that one.

Anyway file-based encryption suffers from revealing meta data such as 
file access timestamps, number of files, work activity, maybe even 
folder structures.


Volume-based encryption doesn't tend to have these issues. The 
containers of the truecrypt successor should also be supported by 
cryptsetup if I recall correctly.


Assuming the other OS is Qubes OS you could do one encrypted 
voloume/container per Qubes domain and do an implementation as follows:

- mount the remote fs in some "distributor" appVM, e.g. using sshfs
- use qvm-block from dom0 to attach the encrypted containers from the 
distributor VM to the respective target domains
- decrypt the containers in the respective domains using keys that can 
only be found there


That implementation still suffers from parsing attacks on cryptsetup, 
but the others should be identical to attacking Qubes OS itself.


It might be possible to mitigate potential cryptsetup issues by writing 
an own qrexec service, but that should be left to the pros...


The performance should be roughly as good as reading & writing from a 
network backend is in general.


For non-Qubes OS systems I don't see the point of separating domains 
though. The other OS doesn't do it neither.

I removed some templates and everything worked again. It seems there is
only a limited space allocated to templates and when this space fills up,
then it messes with the general space available in the system at /dev/dm-1
eating up all available space.
