OWL Cybersecurity Releases Tor-Pi-do Version 1.0.1 for Raspberry Pi 3

Denver-based cybersecurity company contributes to open-source Linux distro

DENVER--()--OWL Cybersecurity, a Denver-based cybersecurity company offering what it believes to be the world’s largest commercially available database of dark net content, today announced the release of Tor-Pi-do Version 1.0.1 for Raspberry Pi 3. Tor-Pi-do Version 1.0.1 is a Linux distribution, also known as a distro, which enables the anonymous use of Tor with Mozilla Firefox on the Raspberry Pi 3.

“The Raspberry Pi is an ideal device to leverage in an educational setting, and Justin’s work will allow a wider audience to explore the idea of internet anonymity.”

This Linux distro brings together tools that enable secure Tor use on the Raspberry Pi 3, the most recent version of a series of credit card-sized, single-board computers developed to promote the teaching of basic computer science and computing in poor or developing nations. The idea for Tor-Pi-do Version 1.0.1 arose when the OWL Cybersecurity team needed an easy way to provide IT support during a workshop in which they would be taking more than a dozen IT executives onto Tor, free software that enables anonymous communication over the internet.

“We are incredibly excited by the release of Tor-Pi-do,” said Andrew Lewman, OWL Cybersecurity Board Member. “The Raspberry Pi is an ideal device to leverage in an educational setting, and Justin’s work will allow a wider audience to explore the idea of internet anonymity.”

Justin Whitehead, OWL Cybersecurity Red Team lead, led the Tor-Pi-do project.

On Tor-Pi-do Version 1.0.1, DuckDuckGo is the default landing page for the browser, providing a starting point from which users can further explore Tor. Additionally, Wicd, an open-source network manager, is included to provide a simple interface from which users can connect to wired or wireless networks with a wide variety of settings.

This project is open-source, and OWL Cybersecurity encourages others to study, collaborate and improve upon the software.
