Hello, federated microblogging :)

You know instance admins can read your direct messages in the fediverse? Twitter and Facebook also can - and sometimes do - read your private messages, and they have infrastructure to comply with law enforcement requests. I'd love to see some end-to-end encryption built into Mastodon clients.

Friendly reminder that even if you trust your admin, direct messages can be read by them. Private communications should be done via tools designed for this.


Friendly reminder : même si vous faites confiance a votre admin, il peut lire vos messages privés (DM). Les communications privées devraient se faire grace a des outils pensés pour ça.

Current #e2e #encryption prototype progress:

It's currently possibly to send and receive single toot encrypted direct toots to individual recipients with externally shared keys using ECDH/AES-CCM

Next up is scraping public keys from profile bios as a simple means of key discovery which is a very minor job.

Then after that I will begin work on multiple toot (large) messages, followed by multiple recipients, and then look at better key sharing.

Probably then build a Firefox extension PoC.

@unorigmoniker I guess so, but having the choice does not seem wrong!
