OpSec for Carding

Setup VeraCrypt On Windows Machine

1- Download and install Veracrypt in your computer.

2- Download and install Virtualbox.

3- Open Veracrypt and I suggest you to either buy another hdd, use a usb sitck with at least 32gb partition or on your pc’s HDD

4- Create your Veracrypt countainer:

4.1-Click on Create volume

4.2 – Select “Create an encrypted file container”

4.3 – Select “Standard VeraCrypt” Volume.

4.4- Find and select the location where you want to create your encrypted countainer. Put a name then hit “Save”. Check the checkbox “Never save history”,

4.5 Click “Next”.

4.6 In encryptation algorithm select “AES(Twofish(Serpent)), hit next.

4.7 Select the size of the countainer then hit next.

4.8-Create a big password and confirm it. Then hit next.

4.9-On “Filesystem” select NTFS.

Now move the mouse to help to generate the encryptation key. Once the bar reach the other side, click in “Format”

4.10 Hit next then close the window.

4.11 Now click in “Mount”, put the password and your encrypted drive will be ready.

4.12 On the column “Drive” in your Veracrypt you gonna see the name of your “vault” and the letter of the driver (for example, A:, C:, etc). Remember the letter.

Now Let’s configure the Virtualbox to make sure that everything will stay on the encrypted vault.

1- Open the VirtualBox.

2- Click in “Files”.

3- Click in “Preferences” then in “General”.

4- On the first field “Default machine folder” click above then select the driver where your vault is.


If you open the vault in another drive (for example, in the B:, C:, D:….) it’s will affect your Virtualbox and the hidden VM will not work. so If you made these changes to the virtual driver A, always open the vault on A:.

5- Now go to the next field called “VRDP Authentication library”, do the same, select the place where your vault is (remember, inside the Veracrypt vault

6- Hit Ok.

Installing and configure Whonix Gateway:

1- Download the Whonix Gateway from Whonix official website and verify the signature.

2- Move it to your Vault.

3- Open VirtualBox.

4- CLick in “File” then “Import Appliance”.

5- Go to your Vault folder then select the Whonix Gateway image.

6- Once imported, click “Ok” and “I agree” for everything on the machine then update it.

7- Now open the terminal inside your Whonix gateway and paste:

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. It’s gonna take a while, chill out.

7- Now back to your Windows VM, click with the right button above the machine then click in “Configurations”, then in “Network” then select “Connected to Internal network”, on “Name” select “Whonix” (this must be there if everything went fine). Hit OK

8- Now start your Windows box (Both, Whonix and Windows need to be on at the same time).

9- In your Windows open the “Control Panel”, find the “Network” and click in “Change adapter settings”.

10- Once open the “adapter settings” menu, scroll down then double click in “IPV4” and change it

IP: 10.152.152.XX (on XX you can put what you want).

DNS Mask:


Preferred DNS:

10. Hit ok to save.

11. Done, your VM will connect to tor using whonix.

This is the basic safe opsec for carding, then install proxifier on the VM and an antidetect browser.

Points to consider:

Using the above OpSec can lead to slow connection which sometimes makes the payment gateways to break and time-out most of the time.

Incase you’re experiencing such time outs, follow this OpSec:
Instead of duct-taping this monstrosity together just use Qubes which has Xen hypervisor and WhonixGW/WS. Achieve the same goals in a more simple and much secure manner.

Safe carding.
