Chapter 7. Installing Whonix

In the last chapter, we focused on installing Tails and accessing the Deep Web with it. Whonix is designed for advanced security and privacy. It's a heavily reconfigured Linux Debian that runs inside multiple virtual machines, providing a substantial layer of protection from malware and IP address leaks.

Whonix is the only operating system designed to be run inside a VM and paired with Tor.

In this chapter, we'll learn how to install and use Whonix to browse the Deep Web.

We will discuss the following topics:

  • What Whonix is
  • Whonix installation and pre-requisites
