LXer: The Secure Linux OS - Tails


Published at LXer:

Some people worry a lot about security issues. Anyone can worry about their personal information, such as credit card numbers, on the Internet. They can also be concerned with someone monitoring their activity on the Internet, such as the websites they visit. To help ease these frustrations about the Internet anyone can use the Internet without having to “look over their shoulder”.

Does this guy realize your ISP is the entity that reports your activities to the government and the headers on tors packets aren't encrypted (i.e. he can wipe off that grin, they know where he's been)?

Particularly here in the People's Democratic United Kingdom where Chairman May has decreed that we are all criminals and ISPs must pay lots of money to companies she gets paiud by to log all internet data for us all. The UK has joined China and North Korea on their Internet crusade to make things better.

VPN to a server in Venezuela (no extradition to US, check your national sh*t list for options in your area), then Tor your backside off.
Hiding from the law...
That's not the time for half measures...


This was obviously the work of someone who hacked dijetlos account...

How to exchange keys?
The UK really is now a police state on the internet -- everything that can be done to spy is actually mandated. This is not a drill. This very post ios being recorded by my ISP ansd stored for at least 12 months so that anybody with a certain level of clearance can read it if they feel like it.

Joking aside, hiding from the Man... that only works as long as he doesn't get a wild hair about you. Your VPN is not magical, with enough compute and time there are no secrets on the internet, or as I was taught as a child, what's done in the dark will get brought to the light.

I'd imagine if you called them up (the ISP in VZ), they'd probably read it over the phone to you, assuming you speak Spanish...amigo. Or you could have them FAX it to you... that's a widely ignored technology I'm told.

Shouldn't a obsf vpn with tor hide traffic with your isp? I don't know for sure, so that's why I phrased it as a question.

You can't hide from your ISP. they know where the connection came from, they know where it's going, even VPNs. Tor has a rolling encryption pattern but they only have to crack it in one spot, at your ISP, so that doesn't really help you if they (da' gubmint) decide you're a person of interest. They'll back up a truckload of compute and just start grinding on it. First the VPN then the Tor encryption. Pretty soon you'll hear the little patter of hobnail boots and you'll need a new front door when it's all said and done...
If they start at the point they arrest you, they'll likely have something tasty to show the judge at your arraignment.
If you become a person of interest. More casual sniffing and snooping is defeated by this solution.

Of course there's also the fact that, here in the UK, withholding and encryption passwords is a criminal offence -- so any data you have must be given to the police if you're arrested or you get automatic jail time until you do.
