Privacy and Security: They go hand in hand, but are not the same.

Achieving good privacy comes through good security practices on and off the web.

Pentagon testing mass surveillance balloons across the US | US news | The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/aug/02/pentagon-balloons-surveillance-midwest
The US military is conducting wide-area surveillance tests across six midwest states using experimental high-altitude balloons, documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reveal.
Up to 25 unmanned solar-powered balloons are being launched from rural South Dakota and drifting 250 miles through an area spanning portions of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri, before concluding in central Illinois.

"Last week, Motherboard reported on a public record request that revealed that Amazon had struck confidential deals with local police forces to get them to promote the company's Internet of Things 'Ring' doorbells, and the accompanying 'Neighbors' app that produces a kind of private surveillance mesh overlooking nearby public spaces -- under the terms of the deal, cops would be able to see a map noting locations of Ring surveillance cams and request footage from their owners."

"Now, a further records request shows that one officer who was trained by Amazon for the program was told that 200 law enforcement agencies had struck similar deals."

Recht auf Vergessenwerden


Recht auf Vergessenwerden


Was ist eigentlich aus Recht auf Vergessenwerden geworden? Und warum scheint es das Einzige zu sein, dass vergessen worden ist? Das Vergessen (können) ist eine der großen und wichtigen menschlichen Eigenschaften. Und genau das sollten wir in die digitale Welt mit einbringen. Die DSGVO und GDPR ist ein guter Schritt. Das sollte aber noch ein wenig weiter gehen.

Der Begriff des Rechts auf Vergessenwerden geht auf den Rechts- und Politikwissenschaftler Viktor Mayer-Schönberger zurück. Er schlägt vor, elektronisch gespeicherte Informationen mit einem Ablaufs- oder Verfallsdatum auszustatten. Nach Ablauf dieses Datums soll die Information durch ein Programm oder das Betriebssystem des Computers automatisch gelöscht werden.

"Researchers from two universities in Europe have published a method they say is able to correctly re-identify 99.98% of individuals in anonymized datasets with just 15 demographic attributes."

"Their model suggests complex datasets of personal information cannot be protected against re-identification by current methods of ‘anonymizing’ data — such as releasing samples (subsets) of the information."

"Indeed, the suggestion is that no ‘anonymized’ and released big dataset can be considered safe from re-identification — not without strict access controls."

Конфиденциальность интернет серфинга под угрозой




Kazakhstan: MITM on all HTTPS traffic!


Bugzilla (MoFo):
Eugene 20 hours ago

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0

Steps to reproduce:

Since today all Internet providers in Kazakhstan started MITM on all encrypted HTTPS traffic.

They asked end-users to install government-issued certificate authority on all devices in every browser: http://qca.kz/

Actual results:

MITM attack: https://i.imgur.com/rFEjXKw.jpg

Message from Internet provider, requires to install this CA: https://i.imgur.com/WyKjOug.jpg

Proofs: https://atlas.ripe.net/measurements/22372655/#!probes

Official site with root CA: http://qca.kz/

Links to certificates:
http://qca.kz/qazca.cer
http://qca.kz/qazca.pem
http://qca.kz/qazca.der

Expected results:

I think this CA should be blacklisted by Mozilla and Firefox should not accept it at all even user installed it manually.

This will save privacy of all Internet users in Kazakhstan.

I think both Mozilla and Google should intervene into this situation because it can create a dangerous precedent, nullifying all the efforts of encofcing HTTPS.

If Kazakhstan will succeed, more and more governments (eg. Russian Federation, Iran, etc.) will start global MITM attacks on their citizens and this is not good.

I think all CAs used for MITM attacks should be explicitly blacklisted both by Mozilla and Google to exclude even possibility of such attacks.

Google still keeps a list of everything you ever bought using Gmail, even if you delete all your emails

Google tracks everything you buy using Gmail to gather the receipts for a Purchases list it saves. It says you can delete this by deleting the email, but three weeks after Todd Haselton deleted all his Gmail messages, the list is still there.

Quote of the day:

"It's been said before, but this is not a debate. There is no debate. There is no "on the one hand, on the other hand." There is no "privacy v. security." This is "no privacy and weakened security v. actual privacy and actual security." There's literally no debate to be had here. If you understand the issues, encryption is essential, and any effort to take away end-to-end encryption is outlawing technology that keeps everyone safe."

Putting your phone number in online services is very risky, especially as it is often used to verify accounts AND can be spoofed quite well with sim jacking on the rise!

Be careful.

#Facebook shared a vision about a #privacy. We applaud the idea & goals, with some skepticism.

Meanwhile, it will still be a single platform owned and controlled by a single player - #decentralization is a better way to keep data under control of users.
