Table: Why Kicksecure ™ is Freedom Software

Motivation Rationale
Security Open Source software like Qubes, Linux and Kicksecure ™ is more secure than closed source software. The public scrutiny of security by design has proven to be superior to security through obscurity. This aligns the software development process with Kerckhoffs' principle - the basis of modern cipher-systems design. This principle asserts that systems must be secure, even if the adversary knows everything about how they work. Generally speaking, Freedom Software projects are much more open and respectful of the privacy rights of users. Freedom Software projects also encourage security bug reports, open discussion, public fixes and review.
Legal Kicksecure ™ is based on Freedom Software. A lot of Libre licensed software prohibits modification and distribution without sharing the modified source code.
Ethics Kicksecure ™ developers believe it is immoral to benefit from those Free/Freedom Software components and give back nothing. We stand on the shoulders of giants - Kicksecure ™ and many other Libre software projects are only made possible because people invested in writing code that is kept accessible for the public benefit.
Community It is rewarding and enjoyable to have all types of people contributing. This works best in Open Source projects.
Impact When free in price, Kicksecure ™ can spread faster than commercial tools that cannot provide security by default/design.
Commerce Developers hope to make a living from Kicksecure ™ by selling additional services. (Priority Support | Professional Support)
Career Our experience volunteering on this project improves our skill set and makes us more valuable employees.

No Intentional User Freedom Restrictions[edit]

In the spirit of Freedom Software, Kicksecure ™ does not intentionally restrict user freedoms. Kicksecure ™ documentation might discourage certain configurations, but ultimately the user is free to ignore such advice.

In their default state, programs developed under the Kicksecure ™ banner may afford additional protection against unsafe user configurations. For example, users are unable to - no good example yet - since this is a known security risk and recommended against, but documentation is still provided on how to disable this security mechanism. Simply put, the end user maintains ultimate control over the final Kicksecure ™ configuration best suited to their needs.
