I have a virtual machine on which Linux and TBB are installed. What I'm trying to do is to make sure that other applications, such as operating system applications for example, can not 'call home' while I'm doing business. Uses TBB (not to mention malware, etc.).
I am aware of Transparent Proxy configurations that route all traffic via Tor, Whonix, etc. But I'm just talking about stopping tasks such as software update programs, analyzing the use of packages, and so on. certain applications).
I have therefore thought about what follows.
Create your own tor group with:
groupadd -r tbb
Add your current user (me) to this group with:
usermod -g tbb me
Use iptables to only allow traffic from this group like this:
iptables -A OUTPUT -j ACCEPT -m owner --bid-owner to determine iptables -A INPUT -j ACCEPT -m state-state ESTABLISHED iptables -P OUT DROP iptables -P DROP ENTRY ip6tables -P OUT DROP ip6tables -P INPUT DROP ip6tables -P FORWARD DROP
Then start Tor Browser with
sg tbb -c & # 39; ./ start-tor-browser & # 39;
Is this something that could be done or is it going to open security issues that I'm not aware of (maybe something related to NTP)?
