Installing Whonix in VirtualBox

If you read my post entitled, 'Whonix: What is It?', then you already know:

Whonix is a desktop operating system designed for advanced security and privacy. It realistically addresses attacks while maintaining usability. It makes online anonymity possible via fail-safe, automatic, and desktop-wide use of the Tor network. A heavily reconfigured Debian base is run inside multiple virtual machines, providing a substantial layer of protection from malware and IP leaks. Pre-installed, pre-configured applications are ready for use, and installing additional applications or personalizing the desktop will in no way jeopardize the user. Whonix is the only actively developed OS designed to be run inside a VM and paired with Tor.

Today, in the video below, I'm going to show you just how simple it is to import both the Whonix gateway and the Whonix workstation appliances, into VirtualBox.

The entire process takes about 5 to 10 minutes once you have downloaded the 2 appliances.

I hope you found this tutorial helpful. In the next part I'll show you some of the things you probably want to do when booting into Whonix for the first time.
