I am the founder of the SafePaperWallet.com project.

As part of the project, I distribute paper wallet kits with instruction for secure offline printing.

I plan on making a "Pro" kit that includes a bootable LiveCD distribution that includes the key generating software and can be used offline. The LiveCD will walk a user through the steps of setting up a printer and printing on paper wallets.

I need to find the best LiveCD for the job, it has to fulfill the following needs:

1) It has to be secure
2) It has to have a small distribution on it (see 1)
3) It has to support printing over USB to MANY common inkjet and laser printers

I have some ideas about which LiveCDs would achieve the goals above, but I want to hear from the community.

What LiveCD do you think I should use?

Here's a list, if you want a starting point: http://livecdlist.com/

Any advice and feedback is welcome!

We built "BoffOS" the Bootable offline printing secure OS, as a result of this effort.

I'm not aware of anyone who has viewed the build scripts though to verify that it is safe.

Puppy linux is lightest and it's a secure linux os.

It supports a good amount of printers but for some you need to install driver.

Ps: I think ubuntu is best option as anyone can use it easily.

Hello.

I was having trouble finding a LiveCD that would print full-color offline wallets for multiple currencies, so I ended up just rolling my own distribution using SuSE Studio.

It's basically just a small SuSE 13.1 distro based off of LXDE, Firefox and YaST's printer config tools. 

If you're interested, I put the distribution up here:
