Coyote Linux is a small distribution of Linux, including the operating system and the necessary services for a firewall/router, intended for easy NAT sharing of an internet connection with a single IP address among many computers on a local network, using spare "commodity" hardware. Today, Coyote Linux is still a small, embedded distribution of Linux designed to work as a firewall for small to medium sized networks (less than 200 users). Work stalled on the distribution for a period of about 2 years while the author worked on various other projects. In Janurary, 2009 work resumed on the distribution to provide a more commercially feasible application for providing network perimeter defense.
