Tails also comes to mind.


One quick note on Whonix vs. Tails:

If malware roots your Tails, then it is game over for your anonymity, as your real IP and MAC are exposed.

With Whonix, the Tor process is further isolated out into a separate machine (virtual or physical), so that root-privileged malware or other misbehaving apps can't just circumvent the Tor connection and get access to your real IP or MAC address.


Put a strong condom on your Tor isolation.


Hat tip to mirimir for the mention of our high security Qubes + Whonix option too. ;)
