Version Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life
workshop: Qubes OS for you and me
SHAttering the security XOR usability paradigm
Qubes OS challenges the notion that security and usability are mutually exclusive. Qubes makes it easy to decompose your digital life into different strongly-isolated virtual machines, while maintaining a single unified desktop experience. Your existing workflows don't break, and you can continue to get your work done in the same way as before. This extended interactive demo will showcase how Qubes can effortlessly handle your existing use cases while providing strong security and privacy guarantees simply not possible on traditional desktop operating systems. Audience participation is strongly encouraged. Bring your own workflows, and we can interactively explore how they would map to a Qubes system.
