Invisible Internet Project (I2P)
i2p is an implementation of an anonymous, de-centralized network. Over a single layer, applications transmit anonymous and secure messages to one other. All communications are encrypted end-to-end, and 4 layers of encryption surround the sending and receiving of messages. Every client application uses its own i2p router to establish a number of in-bound and out-bound tunnels to other applications, and these peers pass messages to/from the client. Each peer on the i2p network selects the length of his tunnels; The longer the tunnel, the greater the anonymity but the higher the latency and the lower the throughput. Hence, there is a trade-off between anonymity and high(er) latency AND low(er) throughput. Initially - when a client attempts to contact its peers, a distributed hash table (DHT) containing the details of connected peers, is queried, but no further queries are required to establish subsequent connections. So, the i2p queries - for bringing about connections - differ both from Tor's hidden services and clearnet DNS.
i2p is rumored to have a higher network latency but to be more capable of preserving a user's anonymity than Tor's hidden services. However - regarding the latter point, there is fierce dispute. On i2p, peers communicate over many protocols, including http, IRC and BitTorrent. Finally, i2p domains are assigned the pseudo (non-routable) Top Level Domain (TLD) of .i2p, and to connect to them, a proxy is required.
Tor Anonymous Browser
Tor protects privacy in communications via a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents anybody watching Internet connections from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the visited sites from learning your physical location. Tor works with web browsers, instant messaging programs, remote login clients, and many other TCP-based applications.
Tor Anonymous Chat
TorChat is a peer to peer instant messenger with a completely decentralized design, built on top of Tor's location hidden services, providing strong anonymity while being very easy to use Top most relevant feature TorChat claims, above from text messaging and file sending, rest on the difficulty someone would experiment trying to find out where you are communicating from In the condition someone might be observing you and sniff your internet traffic connection, the person will have a high degree of difficulty in finding out: - Where your contacts are located - To whom you are sending or receiving from - What you send or receive, as everything is end-to-end encrypted
BleachBit deletes unnecessary files to free valuable disk space, maintain privacy, and remove junk. It removes cache, Internet history, temporary files, cookies, and broken shortcuts. It handles cleaning of Adobe Reader, Bash, Beagle, Epiphany, Firefox, Flash, GIMP, Google Earth, Java, KDE, OpenOffice.org, Opera, RealPlayer, rpmbuild, Second Life Viewer, VIM, XChat, and more. Beyond simply erasing junk files, BleachBit wipes free disk space (to hide previously deleted files for privacy and to improve compression of images), vacuums Firefox databases (to improve performance without deleting data), and securely shreds arbitrary files.
PGP eMail Encryption for Thunderbird
The OpenPGP extension for Thunderbird called Enigmail allows users to access the features provided by the popular GnuPG software from within Thunderbird. Enigmail is capable of signing, authenticating, encrypting and decrypting email. Additionally, it supports both the inline PGP format, as well as the PGP/MIME format as described in RFC 3156.
Clam AntiVirus is an anti-virus toolkit for Unix. The main purpose of this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning). The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon in the clamav-daemon package, a command-line scanner in the clamav package, and a tool for automatic updating via the Internet in the clamav-freshclam package. The programs are based on libclamav6, which can be used by other software.
This package contains the command line interface. Features:
- built-in support for various archive formats, including Zip, Tar, Gzip, Bzip2, OLE2, Cabinet, CHM, BinHex, SIS and others; - built-in support for almost all mail file formats; - built-in support for ELF executables and Portable Executable files compressed with UPX, FSG, Petite, NsPack, wwpack32, MEW, Upack and obfuscated with SUE, Y0da Cryptor and others; - built-in support for popular document formats including Microsoft Office and Mac Office files, HTML, RTF and PDF.
For scanning to work, a virus database is needed.
There are two options for getting it:
- clamav-freshclam: updates the database from Internet. This is recommended with Internet access. - clamav-data: for users without Internet access. The package is not updated once installed. The clamav-getfiles package allows creating custom packages from an Internet-connected computer.

JonDonym (the name is derived from John Doe and Anonymous) protects your privacy on the internet and makes truely anonymous websurfing possible. It consists of the following components:
* Mixes: Anonymizing intermediaries (proxies) which multiply encrypt, mix and forward data streams of several users.
* Mix Cascades: Chains of Mixes run by various independent operators. They typically consist of three Mixes: one first Mix (IN) which receives requests from the users, one middle Mix (MIDDLE) which only forwards traffic to other Mixes, and a last Mix (OUT) which sends the real outgoing requests to internet resources.
* InfoService: A separate service which provides information about the available mixes and mix cascades, thenumber of users currently using the mix cascades, and their current workload.
* JonDo: Client program installed on the user's computer. Its primary use is to establish encrypted connections to anonymising Mix Cascades.
In this form, the system protects from observation by
* the visited web server
* your internet access provider (internet cafe, WLAN, AOL, T-Online, ...)
* other eavesdroppers on the connections (ECHELON,...)
* any data retention (by international distribution)
* the JonDonym service itself.

Plex Media Center
Plex is a media player system and software suite comprising many player applications for 10-foot user interfaces, and an associated media server that organizes personal media stored on local devices. It organizes audio (music) and visual (photos and videos) content from personal media libraries and streams it to mobile devices, smart TVs, and streaming boxes. Plex is available for Windows, Android, Linux, OS X, and FreeBSD. Additionally, Integrated Plex Channels provide users with access to a growing number of online content providers, such as YouTube, Vimeo, TED Talks, and CNN, among others. Plex also provides integration for cloud services including Bitcasa, Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive.
Plex's front-end media player, Plex Media Player (formerly Plex Home Theater), allows the user to manage and play music, photos, and videos from a local or remote computer running Plex Media Server. Additionally, the integrated Plex Online service provides the user with a growing list of community-driven plugins for online content including Netflix, Hulu, and CNN video.
Plex Media Center (previous version) and Plex Home Theater was originally based on Kodi (formerly XBMC); Plex Media Center's source code was initially forked from Kodi on May 21, 2008, when it was still called "XBMC". This fork continued to be used as a front-end media player on Linux for Plex's media server back-end media host component until Plex fully replaced it with a proprietary version in October 2015. Plex Media Server is a combination of (mostly) proprietary software, unlike the initial free front-end that was based on XBMC open source software.
