      PokerShield is a complete bootable computer operating system that can be run from a CD, flash drive or installed on your computer’s hard drive. Its goal is to shield players from such hazards as social engineering attacks, phishing, keyloggers, hole card viewers and other attempts to compromise the security of the online player.

      The portable platform is locked down to mitigate the risk of malicious software being installed on players’ computers, the most common security breach affecting online poker players.

      ...


      PokerShield is based on a custom hardened and secure Linux Ubuntu operating system which hosts two Windows virtual machines: One is secured and locked down with its only intended purpose being to play online poker; The other will allow players unrestricted access to the internet. Any attacks made against the unrestricted VM will not compromise the security of the poker-playing section of PokerShield.

      PokerShield is currently in development. When it is released, it will be free and open source to the poker community. For more information on PokerShield, visit pokershield.com. You can sign up to the mailing list so you are notified of updates.

      eigentlich gute Idee für Non-Technik-Leute, wenn es wirklich so eine Click&Go Lösung wird. Wenn man Ahnung hat kann man auch selber gute sichere Lösungen machen.

      Kann man auch mit Windows und einer VM machen, wenn man über die entsprechenden Kenntnisse verfügt.

      Denke auch das jeder der sich mit Linux gut auskennt so was hin bekommt.

      Die Frage ist ob es wirklich überall funktioniert, sprich ob alles was man braucht zum Pokern auf Linux zur Verfügung steht.
