General discussion


So I am about to start a linux project build with an emphasis on security. I am not a security expert in any way so I may be missing some critical items.

What I want to do is run (probably fedora) with XEN for virtualization and I would like to torify the host machine. Guest machines in theory would be using the host TOR connection and not require TOR to be installed on the guests.

I have not used XEN before but am familiar with virtualbox and vmware. Guests would be fixed size ISO files.

I would also go security enhanced linux, but I doubt I will be able to get all this playing nice together. The host will not be used for anything other than anonymizing traffic and handling vm's.

Anyone got some feedback or better ideas or examples? Much appreciated, thanks in advance.
