I'm getting in touch to let you know that Tactical Tech has just released a new section on Security in-a-Box of six digital security tool guides specifically for **Linux**:

Security in-a-Box is a joint project of Tactical Tech and Front Line Defenders which provides practical help and information on digital security, published in 17 languages and reaching over 2 million people every year.

The six new Linux tool guides offer in-depth step-by-step help in installing and running six of the most essential open-source digital security tools, including the Tor Browser, Thunderbird with Enigmail for encrypted email and the Firefox browser with privacy Add-ons:

-  Tor Browser for online anonymity & censorship circumvention:

- Thunderbird, Enigmail and OpenPGP for secure emails:

- VeraCrypt for secure file storage:

- Jitsi and OTR for encrypted instant messaging and VoIP calls:

- Firefox add-ons for secure browsing:

- KeePassX for secure passwords:

The new guides add to our existing 25 tool guides for Windows, Android and social media, as well as 11 in-depth tactics covering all aspects of digital security.

As an essential resource for digital security trainers, consultants as well as anyone interested in digital security, we're delighted to release these guides for the leading secure, open-source alternative operating system to Windows.

If you could share this news on your website and with your networks, we'd be very grateful.

We'd be happy to answer any questions you may have.

We'd also welcome any feedback on the new Linux guides or any other aspect of Security in-a-Box.

Many thanks and look forward to hearing from you,
