comment How to setup a dedicated home machine (Linux) for secure transactions?
When you say "used only for secure financial transaction," should we assume you mean "for doing your own banking, bill payments, and other financial tasks and not for recreational surfing of CNN, eBay, and Stack Exchange?"

comment What is DVNC and how does it work?
1) Ask again on the 11th, after they release. 2) Keep your hopes low; the website has several hallmarks of snake oil or an elaborate prank. 3) I would love to see some of the local cryptography experts opine about the oft-cited (by DVNC) "coupling" in modern cryptographic algorithms - I'm no cryptographer but I'm pretty sure modern crypto by definition has been designed to break coupling. Or maybe that would be a better question for crypto.stackexchange.com...
