last month i got a lot of emails from readers asking how to protect pendrive and data when they are on public computers, i am going to explain this , although i have been using this since 2009 , and i haven't updated or searched new version or new package but i think this article will help you after reading you can search about new version or other package.
Most of you have computers and some of you doesn't have , but half of you use internet in cyber cafe. You go there download songs, movies , check your mail and all downloads you save in your pendrive. When you get back to your pc it shows "caution" virus detected. So I googled and found DemocraKey a portable security package. Here i am going to tell you about a portable package which includes a Abi word processer( edit any word document) , Gimp image editor(edit images) , Clam win portable antivirus(free antivirus), Thunderbird for mail(encrypt your mails), tor browser(proxy enabled) and a true crypter. Now when you go to your friends home who doesn't use antivirus or in cyber cafe you can use your own portable package and surf any blocked website with anonymous surfing. Democrakey,s size is only 50 MB which occupies a little place in your 8GB or 4 GB pen drive.
DemocraKey is the brainchild of Kirk,who invented it in response to government snooping and censorship in China and the United States.DemocraKey converts your portable drive into a start menu like gui enabled mini drive which will track stats of how much space is left in your portable drive and you can directly launch applications from the menu.
You can enhance your democrakey experience by adding other portable applications from http://portableapps.com/
