I had ~60GB going spare on my #RaspberryPi so figured I may as well make the most of it and set up #Samba for file sharing across my LAN. I'm allowing access only from mine and my partner's IPs (which are bound to our MACs) but I'm concerned the share isn't encrypted, so anyone could just walk up to the Pi and take out the SD. Any suggestions for securing shares?
Anyone else using Mailfence for private and secure #email? I used to use them as my primary before discovering @protonmail. I've recently paid for Mailfence account so I can set up SMTP on my #freelearning site (https://lms.samhowell.uk). Haven't managed to get #SMTP working yet, however...
Who enjoys irony?
As soon as one of my friends tries to enter the course on her company network, it's blocked due to https://torproject.org being in their 'Anonymizer Category'.
Or is there a decent tracker list like DDG's I can import into the JS blocking settings in some way? In want to harden Ungoogled Chromium as my backup browser.
Been stuck to my desk this past week but it's been worth it, and I'm edging closer to releasing my Digital Privacy Essentials #elearning course.
I now have a fresh install of #Moodle LMS running on my server, and will be spending the next few days customising the theme and tweaking other settings.
I'll then wrap up the final unit of the course, test and upload, adding various activities and resources in the LMS, before announcing the full release.
If you're interested or just want to share some ideas/thoughts, let me know. Maybe we could all put our minds together in a chatroom or similar.
Massive win for #Liberty, their client Ed Bridges and #humanrights: South Wales Police use of #facialrecognition ruled unlawful in court of appeals: https://www.libertyhumanrights.org.uk/issue/liberty-wins-ground-breaking-victory-against-facial-recognition-tech/
Many thanks to everyone who got involved both legally and in petitioning.
Two birds, one stone. Wear a mask to increase your protection against both #COVID19 and #AFR. If we're lucky, they might not even try to fine us for covering our faces this time (https://bigbrotherwatch.org.uk/campaigns/stop-facial-recognition). Fight #coronavirus. Fight #surveillance. 😷 ✊
Does anyone host #Matrix or #Riot on their own server? I feel this would be a great fallback for private #messaging, especially among family/friends (having full control of data, compared to, say, #Signal, which is centralised).
I also (still) want to try out #Session, but the same old issue makes it difficult: network effect. I proposed trying it with some of my family (now finally on Signal). I got no response. I could almost hear them thinking, "Jeez, not again!"
#Privacy and #rights groups have been alerting us to #police overreach regarding mobile phone extraction for some time (https://bigbrotherwatch.org.uk/2020/06/bbc-victims-of-no-other-crime-are-expected-to-surrender-their-digital-lives-to-such-speculation-and-scrutiny).
Importantly, the issue didn't go unnoticed by the #ICO, who carried out their own investigation in 2018.
Now they've published their #report: https://ico.org.uk/media/about-the-ico/documents/2617838/ico-report-on-mpe-in-england-and-wales-v1_1.pdf
"Only our paid users will have access to end-to-end #encryption for their meetings."
I've asked whether #AFR is used; if so, how is the data handled/shared, and which locations/services is it used for. I think making such requests is a practice we should all get into.
Next, I want to ask about the video and audio that's captured on every bus I ride...
