  • 2013-12: Bruce Schneier answered to someone asking him what Linux distribution is its favorite: "I don't use Linux. (Shhh. Don't tell anyone.) Although I have started using Tails".

  • 2013-12-12: In A conversation with Bruce Schneier, as part of the "Snowden, the NSA and free software" cycle at Columbia Law School NYC, Bruce Schneier says:

    • "I think most of the public domain privacy tools are going to be safe, yes. I think GPG is going to be safe. I think OTR is going to be safe. I think that Tails is going to be safe. I do think that these systems, because they were not -- you know, the NSA has a big lever when a tool is written closed-source by a for-profit corporation. There are levers they have that they don't have in the open source international, altruistic community. And these are generally written by crypto-paranoids, they're pretty well designed. We make mistakes, but we find them and we correct them, and we're getting good at that. I think that if the NSA is going after these tools, they're going after implementations."
    • "What do I trust? I trust, I trust Tails, I trust GPG [...]"
    • "We can make it harder, we can make it more expensive, we can make it more risky. And yes, every time we do something to increase one of those, we're making ourselves safer. [...] There are tools we are deploying in countries all over the world, that are keeping people alive. Tor is one of them. I mean, Tor saves lives. [...] And every time you use Tor [...] provides cover for everyone else who uses Tor [...]"
  • 2013-11-12: In its review "Which Linux distro is best for protecting your privacy?", techrada.com prefers Tails over 4 other distributions: "The main advantages of Tails are its readiness for USB installation and the complete nature of its desktop and its documentation. The Tails system menu also contains enough applications to make you do almost everything you may need without rebooting. The documentation, while not interesting as the one for Whonix, is more than adequate to help even Linux beginners. Yay for Tails, then!"

  • 2013-11: The German-speaking ADMIN magazine reviews Tails.

  • 2013-10 : (in French) Framablog, Le chiffrement, maintenant, contains a whole chapter about Tails.

  • 2013-10-15: CRYPTO-GRAM, October 15, 2013 Bruce Schneier: "One thing I didn't do, although it's worth considering, is use a stateless operating system like Tails. You can configure Tails with a persistent volume to save your data, but no operating system changes are ever saved. Booting Tails from a read-only DVD -- you can keep your data on an encrypted USB stick -- is even more secure. Of course, this is not foolproof, but it greatly reduces the potential avenues for attack."

  • 2013-10-04: In Tor: 'The king of high-secure, low-latency anonymity', page 7. NSA: "[Tails adds] severe CNE misery to equation."
