US Air Force Lightweight Portable Security Computer Operating System
Lightweight Portable Security (LPS) creates a secure end node from trusted media on almost any Intel-based computer (PC or Mac). LPS boots a thin Linux operating system from a CD or USB flash stick without mounting a local hard drive, no administrator privileges required. LPS is a general-purpose solution for using web-based applications.
How To Create your LPS on USB using Windows:
Simply insert the LPS CD and open it under Windows Explorer. The LPS CD should contain a directory called “InstallToUSB”. Connect a USB flash stick to your computer and note its drive letter.Then run the “USBInstall.bat” script. Follow the prompts and it should install LPS to the flash stick. Remember that after creating booted USB do not use this device to store data.
First insert a USB flash stick into a running session of LPS, it will be automatically mounted to /mnt/usbdevices. Most likely, your flash stick will appear at /mnt/usbdevices/sda1. Look for the icon on the desktop after the device is mounted or use the file browser to access the device. LPS supports FAT, FAT32, and NTFS formatted devices.
