Persistent network connections are bound to permanent MAC address ⇒ unusable on another computer + potential security risk
If the network persistence is activated, the real (permanent) MAC address of the NIC
used at that time are stored in the
/live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/nm-connections/ files (
This causes 2 problems:
- Persistent network connections only work on the computer they were configured on.
- We store persistent information about the computers a given Tails USB stick was used on (those files belong to root, but there no point to keep that kind of information).
To upload designs, you'll need to enable LFS. More information
