OpenSSH is my "privacy solution" for each of the last ten years.

I think this poll should allow multiple choices. I voted NoScript simply out of gratitude for long years of use. I would have clicked on AdBlock, Ghostery and GnuPG (at least) could I have done so, since I don't feel they are less deserving. As it is, it is not really satisfactory, I think.

forgot name but there is plugin for firefox that visualize hosts that gather and provide ads data on pages that you visit. To my surprise there is a few companies that feed ads on different pages that you visit.

Except they've cracked all those "highly secure" encrpytion algorithms with their (and the help of the Goog's) quantum computers. So we're pretty much screwed, blued, and tatooed in the privacy department.

ECDSA with long pass phrase was, as of a couple years ago, per the NSA, the most highly secure method. In theory. Now we learn that elliptical curve algorithims are easiest for quantum computer to crack. In theory. Coincidence? I think not. In theory... because we'll never know just how evil big money/power inerests are, nor the extent to which they will go to achieve their objectives. Nor, I suspect, will it be long before organized crimminals, terrorist regimes, etc. get their hands on quantum computers, if they don't already.

Color me jaded....
