At some point Congress will further restrict #encryption via ITAR, which falls under the Second Amendment.

When that day comes ... SWAT teams will raid homes at gunpoint to destroy an unregistered Tor exit node lacking a $200 tax stamp:

Renewed Threat to the Internet Archive


Once again the Internet Archive is under threat. This time it is publishers who do not want an online public library that anyone with access to the Internet can use.

I worry about this, in particular, because the Internet Archive is now the primary repository for my software.

I think it will help to support institutions like the EFF that will fight in the legislatures and courtrooms for libraries everywhere, but I do not know what else we can do.

We can, of course, use censorship-resistant Internet overlay networks as backup repositories, and I do this by using ZeroNet and I2P, but I think it is important that the clearnet not be entirely taken away from us. The Internet Archive is also available as a Tor Onion Service, but everyone knows where its servers are, so that gives it little protection. There was talk of backing up the Archive in Canada, but government regulators in Canada do not seem less corrupted than those in the USA.

#CryptoWars: The #EARN IT Act Is a Sneak #Attack on #Encryption


source: https://www.wired.com/story/earn-it-act-sneak-attack-on-encryption/
As the final text of the bill circulated, the Department of #Justice held a press conference about its own effort to curb #online child predation: a set of 11 "voluntary principles" that a growing number of tech companies—including #Facebook, #Google, #Microsoft, Roblox, #Snap, and #Twitter—have pledged to follow. Though the principles the companies are pledging to adopt don't specifically impact encryption themselves, the event had an explicit anti-encryption message. The cumulative effect of this morning's announcements could define the geography of the next crypto wars.

LibreCrypt


If you have a LUKS encrypted USB stick - how do you use it on Windows?

There used to be FreeOTFE. "FreeOTFE was initially released by Sarah Dean in 2004, and was the first open source code disk encryption system that provided a modular architecture allowing 3rd parties to implement additional algorithms if needed." This project was abandoned 2011, but in June 2014 a fork of FreeOTFE named LibreCrypt appeared on GitHub.

https://github.com/t-d-k/LibreCrypt

LibreCrypt is the only way to read LUKS volumes on Windows. The user interface is the most friendly of the open-source OTFE applications. Runs on Windows Vista onwards. Portable mode doesn't need to be installed and leaves little trace on 3rd party PCs but administrator rights are needed.

It is still in Beta and has issues (see github site). It's interesting to note that there is no way to use a LUKS encrypted USB on Windows PCs if you don't have administrator rights. As far as I know... Show more...

Multiboot with Encrypted /boot Partition with Arch Linux and ObenBSD (on encrypted partitions as well) - Full Disk Encryption


-feel free to post this how-to somewhere else, so anyone trying to complete the same will find it -
.
.
This how-to is about creating a fully encrypted multiboot system with Archlinux and Openbsd. It was said in a post that Linux - BSD multiboot with full disk encryption is not possible, so here are the steps. Full disk encryption means in this case that the /boot partition is encrypted and also the system partitions are encrypted. I tried to be very detailed, in order to help Linux users in the future trying to do the same.

Protect our Speech and Security Online: Reject the Graham-Blumenthal Proposal

"Senators Lindsey Graham and Richard Blumenthal are quietly circulating a serious threat to your free speech and security online. Their proposal would give the Attorney General the power to unilaterally write new rules for how online platforms and services must operate in order to rely on Section 230, the most important law protecting free speech online. The AG could use this power to force tech companies to undermine our secure and private communications."

"We must stop this dangerous proposal before it sees the light of day. Please tell your members of Congress to reject the so-called EARN IT Act."

#MI5 chief asks tech firms for 'exceptional access' to encrypted #messages


source: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/feb/25/mi5-chief-asks-tech-firms-for-exceptional-access-to-encrypted-messages
Parker called on the tech firms to “use the brilliant technologists you’ve got” to answer a question: “Can you provide end-to-end encryption but on an exceptional basis – exceptional basis – where there is a legal warrant and a compelling case to do it, provide access to stop the most serious forms of harm happening?”

CoyIM is a standalone XMPP chat client with a focus on safety and security. It has built-in support for Tor, OTR and TLS. The Tor support allows users to become anonymous when chatting, OTR makes end-to-end encryption of communication possible, and TLS adds another layer of encryption for communication with chat servers. These features are core parts of the application: they are not plugins or extras in any way.” – Nice!

cons: not yet audited and without support for MUC (multi-user chat).
