Is TPM.fail a #bugdoor?


They used an old known #timing #attack for http://tpm.fail but the #firmware was certified by #security companies. The question is what's the job of such companies or were they not allowed to report this #bug?

EasyGPG on Tails 4.0

I am planning to make it easier to install and use EasyGPG on Tails 4.0.


As I have posted before, Tails has long made it difficult to use Desktop files. This is a problem for EasyGPG because Desktop files are one reason that EasyGPG is easier than gpg from the command line.

As I write this, I plan to revise EasyGPG (the file easygpg.sh) and the installer. My plan is to install EasyGPG in the Persistent folder. When used on Tails, moving EasyGPG's Desktop file to the Desktop and double-clicking it will copy the Actions from the Actions folder (in Persistent) to the Desktop instead of opening the Actions folder.

Of course, dragging and dropping will still be impossible.

It will be necessary for both the Tails installer and EasyGPG to be able to know that it is running on Tails. I think now that the test will be that the file system structure is that of Tails, and that the user is amnesia.

I am still thinking about what can be done if EasyGPG... Show more...

An experiment in scalable routing as an encrypted #IPv6 overlay #network https://yggdrasil-network.github.io
#Yggdrasil is an early-stage implementation of a fully end-to-end encrypted IPv6 network. It is lightweight, self-arranging, supported on multiple platforms and allows pretty much any IPv6-capable application to communicate securely with other Yggdrasil nodes. Yggdrasil does not require you to have IPv6 Internet connectivity - it also works over IPv4.

Cryptomator - Free open-source client-side encryption for your cloud files in Google Drive, Dropbox, etc to stop cloud providers prying into your data


It's a fact most cloud providers' T&C's provide for access to your data to "ensure the terms are not being violated or a crime being committed" or whatever they state. So unless you roll your own Nextcloud hosting, if you are using commercial cloud storage like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc you can use Cryptomator on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android to provide your own encryption key to protect your data.

There is no vendor lock-in as you always have access to this source code and you can use any cloud provider you want to. It works transparently so no need to change the way your offsite backup works. It operates as a virtual drive and is much the same as if using a USB flash stick.

Social media platforms based in the U.S. including Facebook and WhatsApp will be forced to share users’ encrypted messages with British police under a new treaty between the two countries


Facebook and its messaging tool WhatsApp will have to give UK police access to users' encrypted messages under an upcoming treaty with the United States, says a Saturday report by Bloomberg, which cited a confidential source. The treaty, which covers other US-based social media platforms as well, would require the sharing in regard to investigations of serious crimes, such as terrorism and paedophilia, Bloomberg said.

Under the treaty, scheduled to be finalized in October, the US and UK won't investigate each other's citizens, and information obtained from British firms can't be used by the US in death penalty cases, Bloomberg reported.

So where does this leave users with end-to-end encryption... does it now fall away, was it was "broken" in the middle? Messages are either end-to-end encrypted or they are not. There is no partial end-to-end encryption. If you can sile... Show more...

#GPA (#GNU #Privacy Assistant) is GUI for #GnuPG.

GPA simplifies many privacy tasks, like key management, signing, verification, and more. GPA features an easy file selector and scratchpad for making signed and encrypted messages or files for quick sending. GPA also has a simple dialog for managing OpenPGP cards/physical encryption keys.
