Operating System for Private and Anonymous Computation Clusters

software by Dyne.org

The DECODE operating system is a brand new GNU+Linux distribution designed to run on servers, embedded computers and virtual machines to automatically connect micro-services to a private and anonymous peer-to-peer network cluster.

DECODE OS logo

Features Components
Wide compatibility with industry standards GNU + Linux minimal base
Anonimity and privacy by design Tor hidden service family
Very secure, restricted environment grsec community fork
Customisable to run different applications Devuan GNU+Linux SDK
Pluggable consensus algorithm Redis based consensus broker
Read-only and authenticated system SquashFS + overlayfs + Btrfs
Integrated updating mechanism Roundshot initramfs
Built-in Graphical dashboard Netdata resource monitor
Low power consumption, outdoor usage Ports to embedded ARM boards
Extensible platform support Includes latest JDK, Golang, Python etc.
Minimal resource consumption Online with less than 64MB of RAM

For stable releases see files.dyne.org/decode

For more information see the DECODE project

Usage instructions

DECODE OS comes in a variety of flavors:

  • for ARM based boxes (embedded)
  • for virtual machines (cloud)
  • live desktop (boot from usb)

Running systems provide a dashboard by connecting using a browser using HTTP on port 19999.

The default username is decode with password decode

The default root password is toor.

Get in touch!

Developers of the Dyne.org foundation are available to support customisations and adaptations of this operating system for particular purposes in line with the foundation's goals.

You are welcome to contact us:

  • #dyne on irc.dyne.org (public and private, no IPs logged)
  • E-mail info@dyne.org

This project is a work in progress proceeding along a clear roadmap agreed for the DECODE project. The DECODE OS stable release is planned for 1st quarter 2019.

Horizon 2020

This project is receiving funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement nr. 732546.

Build from source

The following instructions illustrate how one can build DECODE OS from scratch, eventually adding software to it. This section is a work in progress.

Building can be done from any GNU+Linux distribution, it entails bootstrapping a new Devuan base and then customising it via its SDK using a "blend", root access is needed in order to operate in chroot and in KVM accellerated qemu.

More information on this process is provided by the "Devuan's Developers Manual", here is an outline on the steps to be taken.

System requirements

A GNU/Linux system is required in order to build DECODE OS.

Here a list of package dependencies:

zsh sudo cgpt xz-utils qemu qemu-utils

To clone this repository:

git clone https://github.com/DECODEproject/os-build-system --recursive

To update the repository:

git pull origin master && git submodule update --init --recursive --checkout

Building for ARM targets

A more detailed reference for the arm-sdk can be found here: https://git.devuan.org/sdk/arm-sdk

cd arm-sdk # (or vm-sdk or live-sdk depending from your target)
zsh -f
./init.sh # and when this is done, execute the command in the bottom of the output
source sdk
load devuan raspi3 decode # (replace "raspi3" with your board name, from the list below)
bootstrap_complete_base

Here is the list of the supported boxes: https://git.devuan.org/sdk/arm-sdk/blob/master/sdk

Building for VM targets

To enter the build console just run ./console.sh.

To build a vagrant virtual machine, run build_vagrant_dist.

To build a live iso image, run build_iso_dist.

To build an ARM installer image, run build_image_dist.

Here below the sequences of build steps executed by each target:

build_image_dist() {
	bootstrap_complete_base
	blend_preinst
	image_prepare_raw
	image_partition_raw_${parted_type}
	build_kernel_${arch}
	blend_postinst
	rsync_to_raw_image
	image_pack_dist
}

build_iso_dist() {
	bootstrap_complete_base
	blend_preinst
	iso_prepare_strap
	build_kernel_${arch}
	iso_setup_isolinux
	iso_write_isolinux_cfg
	blend_postinst
	fill_apt_cache
	iso_squash_strap
	iso_xorriso_build
}

build_vagrant_dist() {
	image_${imageformat}_as_strapdir
	bootstrap_complete_base
	vm_inject_overrides
	blend_preinst
	vm_setup_grub
	blend_postinst
	vm_umount_${imageformat}
	vm_vbox_setup
	vm_vagrant_package
	vm_pack_dist
}

The build_vagrant_dist target is a helper that executes a sequence of steps, some of them common to other helpers (hence combinable). Here below the full list of build steps executed by build_vagrant_dist

The bootstrap_complete_base step creates a base system tarball that can be reused by any target, it is found inside *_sdk/tmp for each sdk and to save time and computation it can be copied in place for each sdk if the base system doesn't differ.
