Password Managers Anonymous 06/01/2021 (Tue) 17:14:56 No. 4278 [Reply]
Ok it's time to get a password manager. It has to be open source, free and without any cloud crap because I trust nobody. Which PM do you anons use? Which KeepAss is better? There's the OG, X and XC now. Is there any way to extend my PM to android manually without any company getting their hands on my database? Let's discuss.
Use pass. https://www.passwordstore.org/ It's a password manager, it does one thing and one thing only: manage passwords. Want a GUI? Use a separate program. Want browser integration? Use a browser plugin. Want a searchable menu that lets you copy and paste a password into any prompt? Get dmenu or rofi and glue something together in a shell script. There is a nice selection of stuff built on top of pass on the website. The cool part is that since pass does only one thing it's much easier to reason about it. And since anything beyond just managing passwords sits atop of pass instead of being built it, it's much easier to swap out those things.

Monero As the Internet's Currency Anonymous 04/18/2021 (Sun) 01:27:33 No. 3581 [Reply]
There's many cryptocurrencies out there. But out of the many cryptocoins out there only one stands out, Monero. It's safe, secure, private, and anonymous and there has yet to be a government agency that can crack its code. It's also not handled by banks, payment processors, and credit card companies that may blacklist you for bullshit reasons. The promising technology of atomic swapping will also render crypto exchanges to be not needed as this will counter government regulations of asset exchanges. Also this cryptocurrency is the easier to mine compared to Bitcoin. So do you think Monero will see more widespread use in the future? Give your thoughts.

monero is alright, there are superior so-called "privacy coins" to monero though. dero, for example, is superior to monero both from a security as well as a capability standpoint. there are even still, others. i suppose it doesn't matter much though since adoption/use is the most important thing. that said, there are more than a handful of coins being traded on a site like tradeogre that are superior to monero

Although not entirely in the spirit of /t/, let's talk a bit about this typesetting tool. What do you use it for? Do you like using it? Encountering any problems? What program do you use? I mainly use it for my academic reports, since it works very well with formulae and chemical reactions. Anything else would be an abstract horror, so to say. I have been using TeXworks+JabRef, and have mostly been satisfied with the results - except for the occasional hiccup like the formula above. The only drawback is that there is not a proper dark theme, so it gets a little straining on the eyes sometimes.

Richard Matthew Stallman Anonymous 05/08/2021 (Sat) 14:23:46 No. 4011 [Reply]
Richard Stallman taught us that: 1. In America "you can get arrested without a reason." 2. Russian spy "Edward Snowden is a Great Hero." 3. HAMAS terrorists are the good guys, while Israel is a fascist state. 4. "The US military" are the "violent white supremacists." "The US owes reparations to Iraq for the damage it has done." 5. "The US military is poisoning [low-income] communities across the US with toxic chemicals." 6. It is wrong that "the US government has persecuted Julian Assange for a decade for Wikileaks' journalism." 7. "Publishing of leaked secret [American] information" is journalism, and not espionage or sabotage. 8. Terrorist Iranian dictatorship, trying to make a nuclear bomb, are the good guys, and America should ally with it. 9. "US today — plutocracy, extractivism and dooH niboR." 10. "US government doesn't try to operate fair taxation." 11. American "democracy is a sham." 12. "We must defeat [American] plutocracy." 13 "War is not the way to deal with" the totalitarian regimes. 14. Pre-teen children can "appear entirely willing." 15. Writing software unpaid makes you "free as in freedom." 16. There is nothing wrong with the Red Star GNU/Linux being used in North Korea as the totalitarian surveillance tool tracking any non approved communication. GNU GPL completely approves such use, because it gives their government users "freedom."

User-respecting websites Anonymous 07/01/2020 (Wed) 14:17:12 No. 546 [Reply] [Last]
Are there any notable websites left that would respect the user's right even to some degree? My criteria are quite simple: 1. The website must not require javascript to work properly. It's fine to have extra functionality that requires javascript, but the main purpose of the site should be implemented without requiring javascript. 2. The website must allow Tor users and other proxy users. 3. The website must not require the user to give his name, address, phone number or any other identifying detail. In other words, the website must allow pseudo-anonymity. I can think of very few such websites: 1. cock.li allows you to create e-mail addresses, although the webmail doesn't work, but you can use your own e-mail client instead. 2. Some smaller imageboards work. 3. Search engines like duckduckgo and sometimes Startpage work. Although Startpage has been more frustrating lately. A lot of forums require registration, which is not new, but nowadays they require the user to pass google recaptcha v3, which does not work at all without javascript, and even with javascript it often just gives a never-ending list of traffic lights. invidio.us works without javascript, but the comment section doesn't really work, and you obviously cannot upload videos that way. Bitchute allows you to watch videos if you already have the channel URL and do some RMB+Q magic, but the main page is practically unusable without javascript, and registration requires recaptcha v3. None of the social media sites fit the criteria, obviously.

Hi , I’d like to thank you for this your article on online anonymity here: https://redchannit.net/t/res/546.html News of increasing cyber-attacks, identity theft, lack of privacy and online security got me doing some research on whether or not it is possible to be 100% anonymous online. I’d like to share with you this very in depth and non-technical article / guide I came across that does a great job of explaining the differences between anonymity and privacy as well as provide very useful insight on ways to protect your privacy online as well as remain anonymous. You can find the article here: https://www.vpnmentor.com/blog/can-anyone-be-truly-anonymous-online/ I hope you will find value in sharing it with your readers. Best, Shelly

The 08chan and Zeronet Problem Anonymous 03/15/2021 (Mon) 19:36:10 No. 2951 [Reply]
An idea sort of came together toward the problems of zeronet moderation and a possible solution for another go at something similar. What about crypto wallets? I think using XMR or similarly private coin wallet address as your identifier instead of how you pretty much gave up your privacy to be tracked on 08chan as an initial identifier to track trash glowniggers and commies posting CP and other such trash to ruin it for everyone else. You'd still be tracked but only to the point of your wallet. I'm sure someone a bit more OpSec fresh than me could come up with an infographic to set that up securely even.
15 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>2975 >>4064 A solution I thought of, to allow you to use the site without having to download every single post that had been created and to prevent someone from accidentally downloading CP that some spammer just posted, is to start in text only mode with just the thumbmail for the OP in the catalogue. Then when you enter a thread, you have the option to read the thread with no pictures, and either manually open them for each user that has posted one, or have a button/option to automatically download all the pictures in the thread, or at the very least just the thumbmails. Yes, this goes a bit against the concept of P2P, but it would make things faster and more usable, and if enough users are on the site, even if some of them don't download every single post, there will still be at least 2 users with a copy of each post. Another problem with the site, was that you were never sure if people saw your posts. I remember there was a thread, after an update, in which everybody would post stuff like "can you see me", and wait for a reply to confirm that they had the latest update installed. Furthermore the whole site combined with Tor had memory leaks, as RAM usage kept increasing the more I had it opened, forcing me to close it and reopen it.
>>4068 you can just use this css and your in """"text"""" mode until you expand the thumbnails img { border: 10px solid #ddd; padding: 10px; width: 0px; } the only problem with zeronet is it was written by a complete moron, and in fucking python too, its like it was designed to be slow on purpose if it was written in c and implemented seed layering or optimization ie. get the closest fucking seed next to you and not some fucking randy in thailand or with the highest latency or layer them into a stream torrent style etc.., then maybe it would be more usable
>>4076 >the only problem with zeronet is it was written by a complete moron, and in fucking python too I remember someone tried to reimplement ZeroNet in Golang. I don't know how far he went on it. It shouldn't be that hard to make alternate clients in different languages though.

Alternatives to ffserver (streaming/broadcasting server in general) Anonymous 05/07/2021 (Fri) 08:42:02 No. 3983 [Reply]
ffserver lost support in 2018 and I want a streaming server solution. mkvserver_mk2 is recommended here: https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/ffserver, but it doesn't seem like it's updated frequently (I don't want meaningless updates, but general maintenance, there's issues that have been open for years that haven't been fixed) and doesn't seem like there's a lot of eyes on the code and I don't know how secure it is. There's https://github.com/ossrs/srs, but chinese who live in china maintain it. I would use this since it seems to have a lot of eyes on it and regular maintenance, but I don't know what kind of botnet PRC has implanted into the code base. The nginx-rtmp-module looks good, but the legal situation of nginx seems precarious to build something on: https://www.crn.com/news/cloud/firm-sues-f5-networks-claims-rights-to-nginx-tech-developed-by-its-employees openrtsp - eh. They don't have a repository and requires manually checking for new tarballs to extract and then compile against. Interesting though. I know you can do h264 streaming with apache, but I want more codecs that aren't over encumbered by patents depending on the way the wind blows. I'm struggling to find good open source alternatives that don't have aforementioned issues. pic is unreleated
I actually have no fucking clue. Seems this topic is heavily under appreciated as funnily enough this thread with no traffic is the top result for "alternative to ffserver" Guess no one really cares.
>>3998 That's because the average person doesn't have a streaming/broadcasting server, and if they do, they usually use OBS for it (which is actually a fine program to use, but they apparently signed the OSI's anti-Stallman letter, so as far as I'm concerned, it goes into the trash anyway). To the average streamer, there's no need for anything else but SL/OBS or Xsplit, and Restreamio if they want Twitch and YouTube money.
