Abstract

The idea behind QubesOS is known as security by compartmentalization. You create different Qubes (VMs or domains) to compartmentalize your digital data. So that even if one of the VMs is compromised, the attacker will not be able to access data stored in other VMs.

This talk will introduce QubesOS, discuss the internal and working principals. We will also see how various day to day things can be handled safely in Qubes.

Outline
