Linux Distribution: Download Whonix Torrents

Whonix Logo

Whonix (formerly known as TorBOX) is a Debian–based distribution which focuses on security. It aims to provide privacy, security and anonymity on the internet. This distribution consists of two virtual machines, a "Workstation" and a Tor "Gateway", running Debian GNU/Linux. All communications are forced through the Tor network to accomplish this.

Virtual Box

This version is good for Windows, MacOSX and Linux. It comes with the XFCE Desktop Environment

This version is good for Windows, MacOSX and Linux. It doesn't come with any Desktop Environment, it's recommended for advance and expert users only.


For an openly developed, free and open-source software (FOSS), GPL licensed hypervisor that can run Whonix, it is recommended to use Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM) that comes with the GNU/Linux OS. KVM combined with the VirtualMachineManager front-end should provide a familiar, intuitive and easy-to-use GUI. KVM uses libvirt.
