Assume this passes - how do we fight this with technology? How do we become invisible and untraceable? -
I'm afraid of discussing certain techniques would be frowned upon.
There are ways though but even if you achieve internet anonymity they have various other ways to track anyone they deem necessary especially since
they are aiming towards a cashless society. Some say "just get off the grid" but I have explained in the other thread that that is not an option for
me so even if I got rid of my smartphone and cancelled my internet I have an RFID in my bank cards and I'm forced to use them since my work will only
do direct deposit.
Do you have any suggestions on how to achieve complete internet anonymity?
In my book there is only two options. Fight the UN to stop this ( if we are even given a voice) or find ways around it using existing technology,
I don't ever remember the UN giving the citizens of countries the right to vote on these issues, thats what our leaders job is. How does Obama and
Romney feel about this? We would have to trust one of those to do the right thing. Actually this would be Susan Rice the US Ambassador to the UN or
the secretary of state or the President if need be. en.wikipedia.org...
Will Susan represent
We The People in the US or the government status quo?
Whats the Canadian Ambassador going to do in your country? Can we petition these people to fight for the common mans rights? Seeing has how both of
our countries already have similar proposals, I doubt a petition would do much good. I think some really savvy lawyers need to get involved who can
help up use existing laws to fight this.
If not, if we cant vote in any way shape of form the only thing we can do is use existing technology to secure our privacy legally. None of these
technologies are 100% foolproof but law abiding citizens should not worry about that.
There are 4 technologies that can help that I know of. Please people feel free to add to this.
1) Https Everywhere - a firefox plugin. Using this will ensure every website you go to is connecting to an encrypted server. All data exchanged
between you and the site is encrypted.
2) The Tor Browser Bundle - This firefox based browser comes loaded with plugins for security and anonymity. It also connects to the TOR network and
lets you route your internet activity through that network. Everything on this network is encrypted and no logs are kept of your browsing or data.
This network uses anonymous ever changing servers to route your data. This is very untraceable.
3) Virtual Private Networks (VPN) - These private networks like the TOR network are encrypted and no logs are kept of your browsing or data. They are
not required by law in most places to keep records and most do not simply because they want to be a private service. Most of these are paid for but
there are some free VPN's such as VPN Direct has a free server you can use. There are others, just google search.
4) Encryption - You can encrypt certain data or a whole hard drives with such tools as TrueCrypt.
Using all these technologies in conjunction will allow you to surf in a way where your ISP virtually has no data on you. The first thing the ISP will
notice is the person used a VPN - the ISP can see you connect to the VPN, but there after that, it's all the data the ISP will have since your
internet needs will no longer go through their system. If the Gov goes to the VPN, they wont have any info.. they've already deleted it off the
servers. Not to mention your also routing through the secure TOR network when you use the Tor Browser bundle. In both of these services all data is
encrypted - double encrypted if you use both together - then it's all deleted. All URL's are encrypted, all data is encrypted then Poof, it's gone.
AFAIK this is the best we can do currently but it's pretty good. It's certainly better than nothing.
