Alles, was Sie tun, verschwindet automatisch, wenn Sie Tails beenden.

Sie können jedoch einige Ihrer Dateien und Konfigurationen in einem verschlüsselten persistenten Speicher, z. B. auf Ihrem Tails-USB-Stick, speichern:

  • Your documents

  • Your Wi-Fi passwords

  • Your browser bookmarks

  • ...

Der persistente Speicher ist eine verschlüsselte Partition, die durch eine Passphrase geschützt ist und den gesamten freien Speicherplatz auf dem USB-Stick belegt.

Alles im persistenten Speicher wird automatisch verschlüsselt.

You can choose to unlock your Persistent Storage or not each time you start Tails.

The Persistent Storage is not hidden. An attacker in possession of your USB stick can know that there is a Persistent Storage. Take into consideration that you could be forced or tricked to give out its passphrase.

Wie stark ist die Verschlüsselung des persistenten Speichers?

The encryption of the Persistent Storage uses LUKS and DMCrypt.

LUKS and DMCrypt are the standard system for disk encryption in Linux. Tails uses their default encryption parameters, which are considered highly secure. This is the same technique as we recommend for creating and using encrypted volumes in general.

The weakest point of such encryption is often the passphrase chosen by the user.

We recommend choosing a long passphrase made of 5 to 7 random words. Learn about the maths behind memorizable and secure passphrases.
