Building chromium with security in mind !!!

Post#1 by r004 » 18 Feb 2015, 09:51

There are a couple of security enhanced chromium out there. and each of them closed source implemented their own features in to it.
Well I am currently building a security enhanced chromium for a amd64 linux and have these questions? the end result should be a browser that doesn't send or track anything to google itself and also provides most of available security option out there.
  • What is the list of options to be enabled and how? does it involve patching the source code or something else? (provide the full list of options if possible)
  • How to add Flash with the sandbox feature.
  • adding some plugins in to the end result or letting it to use google chrome's extensions and plugins.
  • How could I add some google chrome extensions to the end result. Do google chrome extensions send tracking and other material data to google too?
  • How to add ca-certificates or similar option for web sites certificate checks?

Almost all plugins tracking your location and other data.
If you want to have "security" best way TOR BROWSER.

Good paper on tor. It comes bundled with firefox:

Porteus thread on tor:
viewtopic.php?f=113&t=2485&p=16997#p16997

From memory, there is an advice to modify google-chrome with tor compatibility.

But firefox-tor bundle is easier.

Salutations...

A nice combo would be Iron browser and Vidalia.

Best Regards...

They have Vidalia discontinued. There is only Tor bundle now!
