The problem: Some people care about their privacy – most don’t.
So the NSA/CIA/CSHQ/Mi6/BSD-Spying-Complex (linked up with the Google & Facebook probably with the industrial-military complex) thanks to the internet & smartphones, keeps collecting data on their sheeps to find the terrorists amongst us.
Well… that’s the story… come up with your imagination of what this Big-Data could be used as well… steering mankind?
Putin used to be head of the russian spying agency KGB now FSB … now he is head of state… incidence? Could something like this happen in the West (USA, UK, Germany) as well or is it already?
The Guardian has set up a website to inform you, what Apps and Programs could protect your privacy in the a Post-Snowden NSA-controled world.
Tor Bundle is very good for your privacy on Desktop/Laptop-PCs: https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en
There are some Apps… tested and untested… that might provide better privacy than WhatsApp (bought by Facebook) does.
… works nice, you can send images and text… but you need to remember your password by hard. or use a screen-wipe-number-lock.
In addition to providing encryption and authentication — features also provided by typical public-key cryptography suites, such as PGP,GnuPG, and X.509 (S/MIME) — OTR also offers some less common features:
- Forward secrecy: Messages are only encrypted with temporary per-message AES keys, negotiated using the Diffie-Hellman key exchange protocol. The compromise of any long-lived cryptographic keys does not compromise any previous conversations, even if an attacker is in possession of ciphertexts.
- Deniable authentication: Messages in a conversation do not have digital signatures, and after a conversation is complete, anyone is able to forge a message to appear to have come from one of the participants in the conversation, assuring that it is impossible to prove that a specific message came from a specific person. Within the conversation the recipient can be sure that a message is coming from the person they have identified.
