Replicant is a fully free Android distribution running on several devices,
a free software mobile operating system putting the emphasis on freedom and privacy/security

Cyanogenmod is proprietary and ships Google Playstore + Google Analytics.
CM doesn’t protect you from Samsung modem back door but Replicant does.

To install Replicant first make sure you have a supported device :

Galaxy S 2 (I9100): Replicant 4.2
Galaxy Note (N7000): Replicant 4.2
Galaxy Nexus (I9250): Replicant 4.2
Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (P31xx): Replicant 4.2
Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (P51xx): Replicant 4.2

missing firmwares=missing features

You shouldn't assume that Replicant makes your device 100% free, because it does not. Devices running Replicant all still run proprietary software, to a different extent. Some still have proprietary bootloaders, some don't (e.g. GTA04) but all of them have chips that run preinstalled proprietary firmwares and a proprietary modem operating system. As a side note, to be complete on that topic, on Samsung devices, the modem firmware (non-free) is actually loaded by Replicant onto the modem (it is not distributed with the system but is rather preinstalled on the phone).
