Hi diaspora

(fr bellow)

I was wondering about #secure #messaging app. Is #Signal still a good choice in 2019 (regarding its tight bound to Google)? I was looking to other competitors, like #Wire, which seems more reliable : https://www.securemessagingapps.com/

Does someone has some day to day experience with Wire? Is it good enough?

Thanks!
Coucou diaspora…

je me posais la question (comme fréquemment) du choix de #messagerie #sécurisée. Le temps passe et je voulais savoir si en 2019 Signal était toujours si intéressant que ça (je pense au lien étroit avec Google), vis-à-vis de la concurrence et Wire en particulier ?

Sur le papier Wire me semble plus fiable https://www.securemessagingapps.com/

Après qu’en est-il de son utilisation quotidienne ? Quelqu’un a des retours ?

Merci beaucoup :)

Matrix Riot


Ich überlege ersthaft #Threema , #Signal und #Wire zu deinstallieren.
Die #Messenger sind nicht schlecht aber da ich kein Google Netzwerk nutze, ziehen die ganzen Messenger ordentlich am Akku.
Riot bietet mir alles was ich brauche Audio / Video und Chat für 1:1 und für Gruppen. Datenversand, E2E Verschlüsselung, etc.

Ein weiterer Pluspunkt ist OpenSource und dies auch bis zum Server. Ich hoste den Matrix Server bei mir Zuhause. Die anderen Messenger sind teilweise auch OpenSource aber der Server meist nicht.

Signal Messenger Has A Clever New Way To Shield Your Identity - A "sealed sender" Feature


A key part of what makes Signal the leading encrypted messaging app is its effort to minimize the amount of data or metadata each message leaves behind. The messages themselves are fully encrypted as they move across Signal's infrastructure, and the service doesn't store logs of information like who sends messages to each other, or when. On Monday, the nonprofit that develops Signal announced a new initiative to take those protections even further. Now, it hopes to encrypt even information about which users are messaging each other on the platform.

"While the service always needs to know where a message should be delivered, ideally it shouldn’t need to know who the sender is," Moxie Marlinspike, the creator of Signal, wrote on Monday. "It would be better if the service could handle packages where only the destination is written on the outside, with a blank space where the 'from' address used to be."

#Skype is so ubiquitous and #privacy ignored by the vast, vast, majority, I don’t see a way to avoid using it. Signal is the best solution I have been able to find to protect #SMS, phone conversations, chats, and #VOIP. I have recently been successful in getting a handful of my friends and family to use it.

Primarily though blackmail.

#Frage #Problem

Leider kann ich die #Desktopversion von #Signal nicht installieren, weil dafür Windows 64-bit erforderlich ist und ich Windows 32-bit habe.

Deshalb würde mich interessieren, wie ich einen #Link vom #Desktop kopieren und auf dem Smartphone in eine Signal-Nachricht einfügen kann.

Ich habe auf meinem Android-Smartphone jetzt #Signal installiert und möchte es auch auf meinem 32-Bit-Windows Desktop installieren. Leider finde ich die entsprechende Installationsdatei nicht. Gibt es sie überhaupt? Bei meiner Suche landete ich immer wieder bei der Installationsdatei für die 64-Bit-Windows.

Like many others, we have been following the latest developments in Australia related to the “Assistance and Access” bill with a growing sense of frustration. The widespread adoption of strong cryptography and end-to-end encryption has given people around the world the ability to protect their personal information and communicate securely. Life is increasingly lived online, and the everyday actions of billions of people depend on this foundation remaining strong.

Attempting to roll back the clock on security improvements which have massively benefited Australia and the entire global community is a disappointing development.

Design for a world that is sometimes disappointing

More than eight years have passed since we released the public beta of what is now known as Signal. Throughout the entire development process, the project has faced resistance from people who struggle to understand end-to-end encryption or who seek to weaken its effects. This is not a new dynamic.

Signal, one of the most secure messaging apps, essentially told Australia this week that its attempts to thwart strong crypto are rather cute.

"By design, Signal does not have a record of your contacts, social graph, conversation list, location, user avatar, user profile name, group memberships, group titles, or group avatars," Joshua Lund, a Signal developer wrote. "The end-to-end encrypted contents of every message and voice/video call are protected by keys that are entirely inaccessible to us. In most cases now we don’t even have access to who is messaging whom."

It is really not helpful if a #messenger just tells "Could not send message" and you have to manually press retry till it does. How about you implement A FUCKING RETRY DURATION THAT IS ACCEPTABLE LONG? Give the user a feedback after a longer time (10 minutes) and ask if the user still wants to send the message, also give the users an option to cancel the sending. Why is is so hard to make it usable? #Signal #Skype

New Signal Messenger privacy feature removes sender ID from metadata


Plenty of messaging apps use strong encryption to make it next to impossible for law enforcement officers or other potential adversaries to read communications sent between parties. Often, however, unencrypted metadata—such as the sender, receiver, and time a message is sent—is all the sensitive data an adversary needs. Now, the Signal app is testing a new technique called "sealed sender" that's designed to minimize the metadata that's accessible to its servers.

A beta release announced Monday will send messages that remove most of the plain-text sender information from message headers. It's as if the Signal app was sending a traditional letter through the postal service that still included the "to" address but has left almost all of the "from" address blank.

Users who want to receive sealed-sender messages from non-contacts can choose an optional setting that doesn't require the sender to present a delivery token. This setting opens a user up to the possibility of increased abu... show more

Signal's :signal: new "sealed sender" feature:

https://signal.org/blog/sealed-sender/

– the goal is to conceal the sender of messages from Signal servers
– this removes Signal's ability to verify authenticity of senders. Therefore, they're introducing a new client-side certificate system

5 messaging apps to use when WhatsApp starts showing advertising


WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application in South Africa, but it is also owned by Facebook, a fact that has prompted some users concerned about their privacy to turn to other messaging apps.

There have also been reports that WhatsApp will start showing advertising to users, making it less appealing.

The close relationship between the two platforms and analytical data collected from WhatsApp have alerted many users to potential privacy concerns, and with other apps offering truly private messaging, concerned users have turned to other options for their private conversations.

If your friends are using say three of these networks, not to worry, as most phones will allow you to easily operate multiple messaging platforms simultaneously. In that way you should still stay in contact with everyone. South Africans should also remember they also have Moya Messenger which is zero-rated data within South Africa.

SVZ: Wegen wachsender Bedrohung: Verfassungsschutz will verschlüsselte Messengerdienste überwachen


Signal, Threema oder Telegram: Der Verfassungsschutz muss in der Lage sein, auch verschlüsselte Botschaften mitzulesen.

Der Verfassungsschutz muss nach Ansicht von Torsten Voß, dem Leiter des Hamburger Landesamtes, in der Lage sein, auch verschlüsselte Botschaften über Messengerdienste mitzulesen. "Die Nachrichtendienste müssen rechtlich und technisch die Möglichkeit haben, Extremisten immer zu überwachen", sagte Voß der in Bonn erscheinenden Monatszeitung "Behörden Spiegel" (Dienstag). Das sei momentan nicht durchgängig der Fall. Voß leitet zurzeit auch den Verfassungsschutz-Arbeitskreis der Innenministerkonferenz...

Prima Sache das mit dem Musterbrie. Da muss ich als Mustermann ja noch meine Self zu geben. ;-))))

Was WahtsApp Alernatieven angeht würde ich meinen, dass #Rito noch mal besser ist als #signal

aber wir haben uns auf dem #Elternabend zu einer schnöden #Mailingliste entschlossen.

Sowas hat den Vorteil, das jeder der ne Mailadresse hat und sich mit Mails auskennt (ja mitlerweile fast jeder) nicht ein neues System lernen muss.

Es gibt Anbieter wie 1&1 die das anbieten.

Eine Mailingliste kann man auch selber mit #MAILMAN betreiben.

Wir machen es nun mit einem #Joomla / #WordPress Plugin ( #Mailister ) aus einem CMS heraus.
