    v144 v145  
    763763We know it's not the best solution to run a VM inside a VM. Virtual Box inside Virtual Box works, but if we change to another virtualization platform later, that may be no longer possible.
    764764
     765= aos Thread Model not available as pdf or paper version =
     766You may skip this optional chapter. Written by aos developer adrelanos.
     767
     768While I read real papers, like the [https://svn.torproject.org/svn/projects/design-paper/tor-design.pdf Onion routing design paper] and many others, I can't be coerced into creating a paper "Designing an anonymous operating system" with latex as pdf.
     769
     770Like Mike Perry, developer of Tor Browser [https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-talk/2012-May/024405.html said] "I find the pdf format heavy and unnerving from a security perspective.". That also goes for me and I also find the pdf format inconvinient. It would also take me some time to learn latex, pdf creation, formatting etiquette and so on. Time, which I rather invest into improving the design, developing and so on. The "Onion routing design paper" is now also outdated and I rather have an editable, often updated and revised website compared to a paper/pdf.
     771
     772Tails does also not have a design paper as pdf and still lots of users and developers. Also TrueCrypt had not design paper about plausible deniability and still got reviewed by Bruce Schneier et al.
     773
    765774= Further hints and readings =
    766775There are [https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-talk/2012-March/subject.html#23489 a few threads] on the Tor Talk Mailing List about the security of aos / transparent proxy. "[tor-talk] Operating system updates / software installation behind Tor Transparent Proxy"; "[tor-talk] Obtain real IP behind Tor transparent proxy; was: Operating system updates / software installation behind Tor Transparent Proxy"; "[tor-talk] Risk with transparent proxy mode [was Re:Operating system updates / software installation behind Tor Transparent Proxy]" - Everything fine so far.
