comment Open Source OS - code you see vs code you get
@JamesC Sorry, not particular sure about Tails OS. I'm sure it's documented somewhere it they are indeed using a deterministic build though.

comment Secure and fast communication between 2 VM's
@Jdeboer You need to develop a threat model so you know exactly what you want to protect against. Ok, you are using cloud instances. In that case I would encrypt the data instead of relying on the service provider for anything. Many databases like MySQL offers connections over SSL. Is that an option?

comment Whenever an unhandled exception somehow makes it into production, is it safe, viable, etc. to print an encrypted stack trace to the end user?
@Panzercrisis Think javascript-heavy web apps where application logic lives on the client instead of the server.
