    2727TorBOX is a multi-system anonymity setup built around Tor's [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TransparentProxy Transparent Proxy]. The basic idea is that Tor and clients using Tor run on two different isolated operating systems. This is the only way we know of that can reliably protect your anonymity from client application vulnerabilities and leaks.

    29 This setup can be implemented either through virtualization or through two dedicated computers instead of VMs. TorBOX is primarily intended for virtualization with '''VirtualBOX'''. The two virtual machines, Tor-Gateway and Tor-Workstation, are based on '''Ubuntu'''. Other software platforms may be used (e.g. [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/VMware VMware] or Debian) but this is neither supported nor tested.

    3333"Bare metal" (installing Gateway and Workstation directly on the hardware/"metal") is more secure than virtual machines, requires more physical space and hardware and electricity costs are higher. Keep in mind that you don't need very powerful dedicated servers or desktops. For more information, see [https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorBOX/BareMetalHints TorBOX/BareMetalHints].
