[qubes-users] Re: Qubes 3.2 questions and issues.....

2017-11-05 Thread J. Eppler
Hello,

jumping from Windows directly to Qubes OS is a big step. Congrats for being 
able to make the step. 

> During installation I selected luks encryption, which works fine. But my ssd 
> is encrypted using the bios, so perhaps not using luks would give me better 
> battery life, and cpu performance?

I am not sure how the BIOS is able to encrypt your SSD. However, when it comes 
to encryption I only trust Open Source and LUKS + dm-crypt is Open Source. The 
reason is that others or myself can verify if LUKS + dm-crypt is secure. Of 
course not everybody is an expert in cryptography, but there are some smart 
people who did or do the work for you (or us).
Regarding performance, LUKS + dm-crypt in Qubes OS uses AES (Advanced 
Encryption Standard). CPUs have additional instructions to improve the 
performance of AES in hardware. See 
[AES-NI](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AES_instruction_set) and [Intel® 
Advanced Encryption Standard (Intel® AES) Instructions Set - Rev 
3.01](https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-advanced-encryption-standard-aes-instructions-set/).
 Therefore, your CPU is very energy efficient in doing the encryption and 
decryption operations. In addition, AES is already optimized for modern desktop 
and embedded CPUs. Keep in mind that full disk encryption requires far less 
resources compared to displaying a window on your screen.

I do the same, because I run into the same issues.

Interesting, I cannot confirm that behavior. It must be specific to your device.

I normally download the default templatevm and then create a clone which I 
modify. I then create AppVMs from the cloned/modified template.

Yes, 1500 is the smallest Fedora template. I don't know why 300mb are 
mentioned. I think it refers to the size of the template package.

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Best Laptop For Qubes

2017-07-04 Thread J. Eppler
I have to agree with @cooloutac $ 500 for just the motherboard and a keyboard 
is very expensive. You have to add the price for at least the CPU, power 
supply,  memory, housing (optional), storage, monitor, mouse to be able to 
compare it slightly with a laptop. 

However, the initial question was what is the best or rephrase the question: 
"what laptops work well with Qubes OS"? ThinkPad was mentioned a couple of 
times and Purism. Are there any other brands or options which have not been 
mentioned until now and are working well with Qubes 3.2 and will work properly 
with Qubes 4.0?

[qubes-users] How to Switch Keyboard Layouts?

2017-07-04 Thread J. Eppler
Hello, 

how can I switch keyboard layouts in a AppVM? I tried to use the XCFE menu item 
to switch layouts. However, it only works for Dom0. In addition, I tried to use 
xkb-switch, but without much success. Interesting about xkb-switch is the fact, 
that it shows I use a US layout in the VM, which is surprising because I use a 
QWERTZ (German) layout and it works. I wonder where the keyboard layout 
information are stored.

Back to the keyboard layout switching. I would like to be able to switch my 
keyboard layout multiple times while working in a VM. Does anybody has a 
solution or idea on how to achieve it?

[qubes-users] Re: Maybe a silly question

2017-03-30 Thread J. Eppler
> As Qubes works by means of the principle of security by isolation and every 
> part of the hardware is running in a virtual machine. Does it make any sense 
> to use Kaspersky Security for virtualization over the xen hypervisor  to 
> improve security and antihacker security?

The KasperskyOS uses a hosted hypervisor (type-2 hypervisor). The KasperskyOS 
is based on a reliable proprietary microkernel. They use device emulation or 
where possible paravirtualization. KasperskyOS is able to use hardware 
virtualization extensions, but does not require them [1]. I assume they use an 
mixed approach of binary translation and kernel based virtualization. However, 
everything is proprietary. This is the reason what makes a technical and 
security comparison between KasperksyOS and QubesOS impossible.

However, it is easy to argue why Xen is a good choice as hypervisor for 
security projects such as QubesOS:

- Xen is open source, which means everybody can audit and anylze it
- Xen is used by several large companies in their cloud data center (Amazon 
AWS, Netflix etc.) -> Industrial proven
- Xen was developed and maintained for over a decade and has proven to be 
reasonable secure and flexible.
- Xen itself has a very small code base, which means less code running higher 
privileged CPU modes (Intel VT + AMD-V ring -1, ARM "HYP" mode).

> Is going KasperskyOS to suppose a big concurrency to Qubes?

No, QubesOS has a very high security standard driven by excellent research from 
Invsible Things labs. Furthermore, QubesOS is open source, which means people 
can extend QubesOS for their own use cases. Larger community projects which 
extend QubesOS are Whonix, the Archlinux-Template, the Mirage-Firewall 
Unikernel. In addition there are a couple of smaller projects.

By the way, KasperskyOS is not the only solution. Bromium vSentry for example 
is another endpoint virtualization solution.

[qubes-users] Re: Redox OS

2016-12-19 Thread J. Eppler
Hello,

yes, it would be nice to use RedoxOS as sort of graphical Unikernel VM.

RedoxOS could be used for:
- password managers (isolated password manager VM)
- graphical pgp/certificate management
- IRC/XMPP chatting
- network isolated file storage for confidential files
- disposable VMs

in the future:
- email
- browsing

RedoxOS could be used to provide per-application isolation. However, the 
biggest advantage of RedoxOS is the small memory and storage footprint. RedoxOS 
requires approx. 128 MB storage space and needs less memory than most Linux 
distribution.

I installed it in June on top of Qubes OS and it was running fairly well for 
being a new operating system. It still has some rough edges. 
I especially liked the simplicity of the graphical desktop environment (Orbit).

Re: [qubes-users] Re: [qubes-devel] Re: Announcement: Qubes OS Begins Commercialization and Community Funding Efforts

2016-12-16 Thread J. Eppler
Hello Leeteqxv,

if I understood you correct, what your clientele want's to have is constant 
improvements for Qubes OS. They don't want to compile or test things. 

This is a subscription based model, where people pay the Qubes OS team for 
their ongoing work rather than for an existing product.

Furthermore, I agree with you "memberships-based support services (premium
communities) is a good business model for" Qubes OS.

However, I think that testing new features and introducing new features can be 
done together with the open source community and Qubes OS could offer a LTS 
version for money. LTS version could focus on guaranteeing backports and fixes 
for specific LTS version over a period of 3 or more years, whereas the 
community support will only be offered for a year or till the next version of 
Qubes OS appears.

I think the Qubes OS team should focus on getting paid for their ongoing work 
rather than Qubes OS as a product and the only way to do this is to offer 
monthly or yearly subscriptions for customers and additionally support 
memberships for IT professionals (consultants, IT departments etc.).

Hello,

you can try this:

the command will either start "xterm" or simply return an error message.
You can replace "xterm" with "gnome-terminal" or any other program you want to 
start.

Qubes is a desktop operating system. If you want to use the Qubes technology on 
a server install Xen. 

If you want to have a graphical management interface for your Xen server than 
you can use:

- XenServer (Citrix)
- Xen Orchestra (web based)
- VirtManager

or what ever else you like. 

Xen is widely used in the server world. Amazon, Netflix, IBM softlayer etc. use 
Xen as part of their cloud infrastructure.

Second if the instructions are not helpful have a look at the source code. 
Qubes has a builder framework. The building process, for templates and Dom0, is 
done in a chroot environment. At least as I understand it.

Re: [qubes-users] WHERE is VT-D implemented..?

WHERE is VT-D implemented..?

Intel VT-d is a hardware virtualization feature and it is implemented in 
hardware.

Xen uses Intel VT-d. Xen does not call it Intel VT-d, instead Xen uses the more 
general term IOMMU (I/O MMU). 

For the rest look at Zrubi's answer.

[qubes-users] Re: Why is there no built-in nvidia driver support? aka GTX 980 issues

2016-09-15 Thread J. Eppler
So my big question is: why does Qubes OS not have built-in GPU support? why is 
it working better on integrated graphics?

Integrated graphics cards are mostly Intel based. Intel is one of the top 
contributors to Linux and provides free and open source drivers for their 
integrated GPU's. 

Nvidia is one of the worst companies [1] when it comes to Linux open source 
graphics drivers. On the other hand, Nvidia provides well supported proprietary 
driver.

However, including binary drivers in an open source operating system is always 
difficult and raises security problems, since it is impossible to audit the 
source code of the proprietary driver. Who knows what the proprietary driver 
really does?

Another problem is the switching mechanism between integrated and discrete GPU 
in Laptops, Nvidia did never provide any source code or driver for that. The 
open source community had to fill that gap. 

I personally would like to see a powerful open source Noveau driver for Nvidia 
cards which outperforms Nvidia's proprietary driver.

Re: [qubes-users] AMD Zen Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV)

2016-08-20 Thread J. Eppler
Hello, 

till now the argument of Qubes OS was that there are no laptops with AMD CPU's 
or APU's which Qubes OS can run on. 

Qubes OS primary focus is on laptops and than on workstations. 

Qubes OS uses Xen to isolate "qubes" (vms) from each other. Xen can run on AMD, 
Intel, ARM and other platforms. Therefor Qubes itself is not dependent on the 
hardware itself. Qubes depends on certain virtualization extensions like Second 
Level Address Translation (SLAT), CPU virtualization extension and 
IO-Virtualization (IOMMU). AMD has all those virtualization features. So, in 
theory Qubes OS could run on AMD chips.

The problem till now was that AMD was not producing any hardware which was able 
to compete with Intel's quasi mono pole. This changed with this weeks AMD Zen 
announcement. The next question is: when does AMD Zen CPU's will appear in 
laptops? 

The next question is, will AMD offer SEV support for consumer CPU's?

[qubes-users] Re: New qubes user question/issue: firewall VM consuming unexpected amount of RAM

2016-06-18 Thread J. Eppler
Hello, 

all VM's in Qubes consume a large amount of memory by default. You can 
restrict your firewall VM to 1 GB or less. 
You can restrict the memory consummtion under 'Right click -> VM Settings 
-> Advanced' to Max. Memory ~1024 MB or less. 

There is also a Unikernel solution. Unikernels are special purpose 
operating systems. Thomas Leonard created a Unikernel firewall for Qubes OS 
which runs perfectly fine with 30 MB of RAM. 

You will find resources on how to do it here:

This menu is not visible in Qubes OS, but you can make it visible by 
setting the mark in "Right click -> VM Settings -> Run in Debug Mode".

I read in the specs that the HP EliteBook 850G1 has an SSD drive, so 
Windows should start in
60 seconds. This is the time for the qrexec service. It sometimes helps to 
increase the time to 
for example 120 or 300 seconds.

For example:

qvm-prefs lab-win7 -s qrexec_timeout 120

Re: [qubes-users] Re: Windows 7 virtual graphics card

2016-06-09 Thread J. Eppler
Hello,

the Windows 7 standard VGA driver allows you to use such high values, but 
this was not my question.
My question was if Windows 7 itself does support 4K displays by default. I 
don't think it is a nice experience
to use Windows less than 10 with an 4K display with only 15" screen size.

Best regards
  J. Eppler

[qubes-users] Re: How to install clean template?

2016-06-09 Thread J. Eppler
Hello, 

yes, I normally clone one of the default VM's in the Qubes Manager. Which 
opens a popup dialog to name your cloned template. 

For example: fedora-23 -> clone to fedora-23-dev

Afterwards I tweak the templates for my development needs.

For example: Install my IDE, git etc.

At the last step I create new App VM's which are based on my development 
qube. I name them mostly after the project or programming language.

For example:
java-dev
work-projectname-dev
...

Sometimes it is better to create a standalone VM for development. 

Best regards
  J. Eppler

Hello, 

is a resolution of 2560*1400 and 300 dpi supported by Windows 7? 
As far as I know it is difficult to use with Windows 7.

Hello, 

Mike Patton is right. Instead of blaming other people afterwards you should 
have asked
before you do something.
