Does anyone celebrate (or on any other way mark) 28. January ? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_Pri

I was wondering what would be the top 3 or top 5 themes for this event in my community. So far, thinking of:
1. password management
2. email security (spam/phishing/viruses)
3. web browsers and adblockers (cookies, trackers, ...)
4. VPNs

I was also planing on talking only about solutions.

What do you think?

@kiri @stick @cypherpunk Interesting! Whit Diffie has a nice historical perspective related to these projects: "cryptography---cryptographic algorithms---look great, but everything from cryptographic implementations to OSes, hypervisors, etc., look dreadful. The pressing computer security issue today is one raised in the 1970's, which we have not really addressed in a widespread way: the confinement problem."

Starting around 45:20.

Interesting OS security project: spectrum-os.org

* each app runs in a separate KVM container
* each VM is generated by a derivation
* graphics output is composited together via wayland/virtio

The idea is not too dissimilar to
, with the following main differences:

* Xen -> KVM
* Fedora/Debian ->
* Xorg -> wayland/virtio

You can read more about the details here: spectrum-os.org/design.html

In the recent macOS Big Sur release, Apple placed 56 of its own apps, such as FaceTime and Apple Maps, on an exclusion list allowing them to bypass firewalls and certain VPNs without users’ knowledge. This seriously undermines macOS users’ security and privacy.

After thorough examination, we confirm that on ProtonVPN’s macOS app, no traffic is excluded from the encrypted VPN tunnel when Kill Switch is enabled (including Apple apps’ traffic). More details here: protonvpn.com/blog/big-sur-exc

Baš sam malopre cimao @tildacenter na private da vide jel im zanimljiv fedive.rs domen. Nije da nas ima toliko da se delimo na 20 fed instanci, a hiljade kamera mi je relevantnija tema nego 90% drugih tema! U svakom slučaju - dobrodošli, računajte je kao vašu!:)

CryptPad.fr usage has hit a record high, likely due to European lockdowns. 80K+ IPs have visited cryptpad.fr in the last week opening 360K pads. Notably, registration and drive usage are up 30% from April, showing CryptPad users are here to stay! #privacy #e2ee #cryptpad
