what do you put on the usb that replaces the functionality of a ledger
Literally in the pic
but it wipes the data everytime you start it up
You can create an encrypted persistence volume on the drive and decrypt it with a pass phrase on booting
ngmi newfag. put tails down. u talk like u want security but no you're a moronic homosexual.
use it to create seed. write seed down. never use persistent storage
Meh fag I mean the luks encryption isn’t really crackable in any reasonable timeframe plus you can always use hidden volumes for plausible deniability. You have to store the seed somewhere physical regardless.
To your point persistence is the opposite of ephemeral which is the whole point of even using tails in the first place. Overall , it’s a wash. I’d probably use tails as a stand-alone and just have a separate data USB disk that’s encrypted for separation from tails itself. I don’t like writing shit down though and any safe under 30k can be cut into by a Mexican locksmith wiith basic tools
The encrypted storage is as much a security flaw as the piece of paper you wrote your sneed down on.
Only characters that rolled high for will and have memorized their sneedphrases are truly safe.
there are several ways to stop pic related from working.
>use it to create seed. write seed down. never use persistent storage
You don't need tails to do this. You can do this with literally any is as long as its offline before you create the seed.
>as long as it's offline before you create the seed
And, in the event of you using a compromised device offline, it should be destroyed before it can ever be brought online again.
Yes, that is correct.
nothing wrong with using an encrypted partition to store bookmarks and password database. it'd be annoying to browse otherwise
as an officer said to me once
"linux encryption is case closed"
your glowie fud has no power here
paper is persistent storage
You have an airgap between your ears
TLDR: state threat model and risk appetite prior to hashing these things out

Here comes the opsec midwits.
Hey belingcat incompetent glow nagger slaves
It doesn't matter what OS you use PCs have backdoors anyway, I assume coreboot and libreboot aren't as safe as people think.
Only CPUs built after 2008 were installed with IME firmware. Regardless, it can be removed.
Your doomposting makes you glow.
Can you prove that it has completely been removed? Also I'm not a glowie, just trying to get to a point where I'm the weakest link in my network.
You can prove that the IME as we currently understand it has been removed, yes. We can't prove there are no other backdoors present, but on balance of probability if you have a pre-IME CPU running checksum'd open source software you're fine.
A post-2008 with neutered or removed IME is increasingly less fine the newer the CPU model, as a newer CPU is more likely to be hiding backdoors than older CPUs.
As other anons have said, the definition of 'fine' hinges entirely on your threat model, but in my subjective opinion librebooting things no newer than 2017 is fine.
>just trying to get to a point where I'm the weakest link in my network.
Then get yourself an old IBM thinkpad, keep it offline, coreboot it and run tails for offline wallet generation. That's your cold wallet.
Do all your trading etc with hotwallets, and ensure your hotwallets never exceed a certain value. Send all excess to the cold wallet. Never move cold wallet funds unless you have to, securely generate a new offline cold wallet whenever you send a transaction from your cold wallet.
This is the way.
Cheers mate for the info.
>just make your own cpu and code your own programming language
Why do the jpmason slaves not understand how to use greentext?
If you say so
Most people who attempt something like this will fuck it up and lose their shit anyway.
There's a reason easy sells.
>Just use a hot wallet instead of a cold wallet
why are midwits like this? There is only one superior setup to hardware wallets and that's an old airgapped pc without a network chip.
No. The most secure is a paper wallet rolled with a 100 sided dice. But one needs a secure open source way to make tx a bit more practical. Compromises, but uncompromisable
what's hot wallet?
>wallet that's disconnected from the internet
I use Trust wallet and always force stop it after using. Problem solved
>ledger has software backdoor
>usb keys have NSA/chink hardware backdoor
Not much better tbh
You only need anything other than a pen and paper + a laptop if your crypto portfolio is worth north of 5mm
>ITT: paranoid chuds who think the government is going after their 500 dollars in LINK
the problem is really if any nwo coin has some stratospheric gain they will absolutely steal from anyone and everyone they can
they can try, but will not succeed
Replies in this thread glow hard.
Here's how you use Tails:
Boot on air gapped computer, with networking disabled (option in Tails)
Create a multi sig wallet with Electrum as one key and your HWW as another key
Check all receiver addresses on both wallets
If you ever need to send out of cold storage (which you shouldn't) then create the transaction in Electrum on an internet connected device, scan the transaction to Tails via QR code to sign in Electrum and your HWW, then scan back via QR code and broadcast
Yes there is some miniscule risk that glowies have compromised your air gapped computer to connect via a hidden network, compromised Tails or Electrum, AND compromised your HWW firmware, but it's highly unlikely.
this is ok for holding when you need to make like one tx every few years.
Hardware wallets are for using crypto daily. With my trezor I can plug it in and approve a metamask transaction in about 10 seconds. Booting into another OS, signing offline, transferring it back to the online computer, that is a complete pain in the ass.
Is it as safe as if I never did anything with the seed, of course not, but that's not he point of a hardware wallet. I can plug my trezor into a completely virus ridden computer and not have my seed stolen and can verify all the transactions.
are you advertising and begging
Saying u own X is not advertising, how new are u?
but its basically like a salesman running around and praising some shit because HE owns it
its advertising and begging, especially the second part makes it obviously clear
also why is nobody of the corpo advertisers shilling this
Ok, well then by that logic every post on this board is advertising. Educate yourself before putting out ridiculous claims, newfag.
Most are. Some are penny paid homosexuals, a lot by now and some are poor suckers that are trying to sucker others. Especially those with thin air minted tokens of corpo homosexuals, jpmason adjusted scams like eth and its erc-20 bullshit and other proof of israelite buy my token you suckers
w/e autist, just replace "trezor" with "hardware wallet" my only point was that booting from a USB stick is technically a hot wallet, and using tails OS just makes it into a sort of imitation air gap set up. Its not what a hardware wallet is.
Wow so you're ad advertising shill for specter-diy??!
btw trezor is completely open source too, like your link, except it will have way better integration because a lot more people use it.
Advertising open source diy?
the scream of a corpo that realizes his roi will never come
What. You’re retarded. Read your own post, shill
Advertising and begging like in doing grunt work for corpos
you are incompetent slave
You’re on the wrong board, nig.
No I am at exactly at the place I need to be new liberal fascist corpo jpmason slave
I just saw the link and this is actually advertising, kek. Eating your own words.
If you get a hardware wallet
only open source can be trusted, if you can read it that is
