Brief overview: CSI Linux has been built using the Ubuntu LTS as the backend operating system. CSI Linux has many updated tools, features, and additions. To install CSI Linux Tools updates, type “powerup” in the terminal window and press enter. This will not only keep the OS up to date but also third-party tools and our proprietary CSI Tools

When turned on, the CSI_TorVPN encapsulates all traffic through Tor similarly to how Tails works. You can also add a VPN or Tor gateway to your network router for an external network layer of security.

Torrent File and Magnet Link? What are those?

Those files are used with torrent software to help download large files faster and more reliably than regular downloads. Suppose you are using a tool like Deluge, uTorrent, Vuse, BitTorrent, Transmission, qBitTorrent, or the other bulk of BitTorrent clients. In that case, you can add the torrent file or magnet link to start downloading from others using the peer-to-peer (P2P) network.
