Lightweight Portable Security (LPS) is a Linux LiveCD developed and publicly distributed by the United States Department of Defense’s Software Protection Initiative that is designed to serve as a Secure End Node.
It can run on on almost any Intel-based computer (PC or Mac). LPS boots only in RAM, creating a pristine, non-persistent, end node.
It is capable using Common Access Card (CAC) software for authentication into DoD networks.
LPS-Public turns an untrusted system (such as a home computer) into a trusted network client. No trace of work activity (or malware) can be written to the local computer hard drive.
As of September 2011 (version 1.2.5), the LPS public distribution includes a smart card-enabled Firefox browser supporting DoD's CAC and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards, a PDF and text viewer, Java, a file browser, remote desktop software (Citrix, Microsoft or VMware View), an SSH client, the public edition of Encryption Wizard and the ability to use USB flash drives.
A Public Deluxe version is available that adds OpenOffice and Adobe Reader software.
