Portable SecureDrop Demo

When at a conference or traveling, it is possible to prepare a SecureDrop demo using portable hardware and adapted usage scenarios.


  • A laptop running the staging virtual environment

  • A Tails compatible laptop with a physical radio kill switch (for instance a Lenovo T420)

  • Four USB keys prepared for the staging environment running on the laptop

    • Transfer

    • Journalist

    • SVS

The Tails compatible laptop has the physical radio kill switch turned off to simulate a SVS and it is rebooted with the physical radio kill switch turned on to simulate the Admin or Journalist workstation.
