Dat Protocol


Dat is a new protocol for #P2P content exchange. Instead of addressing content via a hash value (like #Bittorrent or #IPFS), content is saved in a version controlled #repository that is accessed via its public key. That way the creator can still update the content without having to distribute a new hash. This makes #Dat especially useful for websites such as blogs and code repositories like git. It works over any transport protocol (from sneakernet to onion), and, since it uses asymmetric #crypto, offers a fair deal of security. It doesn't care what it transports, so you can use it for anything from code to movies. The client can pick which swarm they use, such as a public #DHT swarm or a white-listed set of trusted entities. Here's some file access capabilities described in the whitepaper:
  • Support large file hierachies (millions of files in a single repository).
  • Support efficient traversal of the hierarchy (listing files in arbitrary folders efficiently).
  • Store all changes to all files (metadata and/or content).
  • List all changes made to any single file.
  • View the state of all files relative to any point in time.
  • Subscribe live to all changes (any file).
  • Subscribe live to changes to files under a specific path.
  • Efficiently access any byte range of any version of any file.
  • Allow all of the above to happen remotely, only syncing the minimum metadata necessary to perform any action.
  • Allow efficient comparison of remote and local repository state to request missing pieces during synchronization.
  • Allow entire remote archive to be synchronized, or just some subset of files and/or versions.
Similar to Bittorrent you can choose to become a #peer for a #repository (or parts of it), so popular content becomes well-mirrored.

Meetup: Tor Community Night at PETS | Tor Blog


https://blog.torproject.org/meetup-tor-community-night-pets

A couple weeks ago when I introduced my new role as Relay Advocate, I mentioned we are planning a relay operators meetup at PETS in Barcelona. This is moving forward, and we have some new details to share with you.

We are hosting a "Tor Community Night" after Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS) event hours on Tuesday, July 24th beginning at 6:30PM. Attendance at PETS is not required to attend this meetup. All are welcome.

Facebook is CREEPY


https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/06/21/opinion/sunday/facebook-patents-privacy.html

"Facebook has filed thousands of patent applications since 2012. One of them describes using forward-facing cameras to analyze your facial expressions and detect whether you’re bored or surprised by what you see on your feed.

A patent application explores using your phone microphone to identify the television shows you watched and whether ads were muted. It also proposes using the electrical interference pattern created by your television power cable to guess which show is playing.

Another patent application discusses tracking your weekly routine and sending notifications to other users of deviations from the routine. In addition, it describes using your phone’s location in the middle of the night to establish where you live.

An other patent proposes correlating the location of your phone to locations of your friends’ phones to deduce whom you socialize with most often. It also proposes monitoring when your phone is stationary to track how many hours you sleep.

One patent application discusses predicting whether you’re in a romantic relationship using information such as how many times you visit another user’s page, the number of people in your profile picture and the percentage of your friends of a different gender.

Another proposes using your posts and messages to infer personality traits. It describes judging your degree of extroversion, openness or emotional stability, then using those characteristics to select which news stories or ads to display.

This patent application describes using your posts and messages, in addition to your credit card transactions and location, to predict when a major life event, such as a birth, death or graduation, is likely to occur.

Another considers analyzing pictures to create a unique camera “signature” using faulty pixels or lens scratches. That signature could be used to figure out that you know someone who uploads pictures taken on your device, even if you weren’t previously connected. Or it might be used to guess the “affinity” between you and a friend based on how frequently you use the same camera."

Gmail’s privacy problem and why it matters - ProtonMail Blog


https://protonmail.com/blog/gmails-privacy-problem-and-why-it-matters/

Gmail is a weapon of mass surveillance waiting to be abused. Imagine if Cambridge Analytica had gotten its hands on your inbox.

Gmail has violated that trust again and again, and it will continue to do so because invading people’s privacy is essential to its business model.

A quite well-done talk on privacy and mass-profiling of people:


There's one especially interesting point (apart from may other valuable ideas in the talk):
It's not just about our personal dramas - whether we will get decent credit rate, a visa to US, or our dream job. It's more and more about shaping the society we live in.
Profiling ignores any exceptionality. It dwells and feeds itself on stereotypes, and therefore it makes these stereotypes stronger and more persistent. <...> If a young female is exploring Internet, she's much more likely to get an advertisement for a lipstick than a science magazine.

EU-US Privacy Shield not up to snuff, data tap should be turned off

"While progress has been made to improve on the Safe Harbor agreement, the Privacy Shield in its current form does not provide the adequate level of protection required by EU data protection law and the EU Charter," said Claude Moraes, chair of [the civil liberties committee (LIBE)].

Hey #devs and people who know about phone apps and #opensource development.

I asked recently the developers of the app #Aloha, a supposedly #privacy -conscious #browser, why they weren't open source. (Because I thought it would make sense to be able to review the code to make sure that there isn't anything dodgy in there.)

The replied the following:
Thanks for the message. Open source only make sense when you can build and install straight away to your device, but with mobile devices it is not very easy to do. You have to have a lot of skills and be a part of developer program. Plus it requires back end and server infrastructure. Having code open sourced doesn’t necessarily means the production builds available in stores have been built unmodified, so it just don’t make sense to go open source in our case.
Does that make sense to you at all? It feels to me that they are dismissing the whole idea because of one small thing. "Showing the code doesn't make sense because the app stores add some code".... ???

Over the course of 2 months, and one Ubuntu and Debian upgrade, I came from not being impressed with #Gajim + #OMEMO to extremely satisfied with it, in a way that even mom and dad can talk to me through it.

Release 1.0.1, available natively in Bionic, is extremely well polished, highly usable and the OMEMO plugin works great when I have to talk to people using android. Great job to everyone who helped out in the project!
