Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I found this page about Linux Secure Remix in help.ubuntu.com. It suggests that this is a more advanced version of Ubuntu for dual boot running Ubuntu alongside windows.

My question is whether its site is authentic? And is this an actual version of Ubuntu or a fake? Does Ubuntu authenticate this site?

Linux secure remix is NOT an official derivative of Ubuntu so is off topic. –  Rinzwind Feb 6 '14 at 14:01

If you read the first paragraph it says (emphasis mine):

Linux Secure Remix (ex- Ubuntu Secure Remix) is a slightly improved Ubuntu disk designed especially to install Ubuntu in dual-boot with Windows (or MacOS). It is a non-official Ubuntu derivative.

That added to the official list of Ubuntu flavors should be enough to say that no, Linux Secure Remix is not a official Ubuntu derivative.

Simply put: Nope.
It looks like it's made and maintained by fans and it's not an official part of the Ubuntu line-up. You can see the official Ubuntu distributions here.

The help.ubuntu.com page about Linux Secure Remix is a community help page. Anybody can create those. You can read more about the community help on its main page:
