:: Overview ::
Despite the intrusion of massive surveillance programs like PRISM
mass-use of Stingray
devices, as well as the potential threat of weak to mid-tier
encryption equating to no encryption because of things like Bullrun
, it's still the
case that you may find personal privacy on the internet a priority, or further that
since the state is allowed to see everyone's personal information, that everyone else
should be allowed to see the same information, meaning offensive measures as well as
defensive measures are necessary. Well this is a good starting point for your future
of being put on a government watch list because below are a bunch of various tools
for educational implimentations of fuckery.

:: Defense ::
Secure systems and networks.
Due to the nature of centralized or federated systems, it does not matter what kind of
encryption or log policy a service has, they are trust-based systems with central points
of failure. The belief that protocols like XMPP don't leak any valuable metadata (or are
not easily broken through basic social engineering attacks) is a harmful ideation that
gets people regularly killed. The only truly secure systems are decentralized,
distributed, trustless, permissionless, encrypted, free and open systems. I am in the
process of finding robust decen+dist
services for everything in this list and personally
no longer trust systems that are not decen+dist

:: Hardware Insecurity ::
Most of this page is about software exploitation and its mitigation, but
it should be noted that compared to software, computing hardware is
disproportionately proprietary and insecure. There are plenty of security
issues you can look up for both Intel
architecture and even if
they didn't backdoor their own hardware there are still serious deep-system
vulnerabilities that have no robust solutions no matter what architecture
your hardware uses. In particular, the Rowhammer
, and ZombieLoad
attacks are pretty devestating and do not have any effective patches. The
first two allow for arbitrary priveledge escalation and end-to-end
encryption key theft, and ZombieLoad allows for full-blown deep-system
remote access and total capture even of virtual machines running privacy
software like the Tor browser as the site shows. These exploits do not
care what operating system you run or security software you use. This
should be considered an absolutely massive issue with secure computing
and hopefully curbs any enthusiasm you have in thinking you can evade an
intelligence agency from getting what they want out of your computer.
