Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part Three: Hidden Services Anonymity, Darknets and Staying Out of Federal Custody, Part Three: Hidden Services For a moment, picture a situation where you want to host some files or images, but you do not want it traced back to you. Perhaps you're working on a project with others and need secure data storage. In the last article, we spent some time going over the concepts of onion routing and how it can be useful to you. Tor Hidden Services A Tor hidden service is simply a web server that runs locally and only takes requests from inside the Tor network. Due to the nature of hidden services being anonymous to a degree, the content can be extreme. Setting Up Your Own Hidden Service If you have gotten this far in my series, you are probably interested in setting up your own service. Step 1 Get the Tor Client In the previous article, we downloaded and used the Tor browser bundle. After we're finished, we have the Tor client running on a default port of 9050 and are ready to go! Step 2 Set Up Your Web Server $ sudo . Tip
Five Best Desktop Keyboards Huh - you lead with a photo of a BBC Micro keyboard and don't even mention it in the article? What gives? What's with people not reading the small print? "The Hive Five is based on reader nominations. As with most Hive Five posts, if your favorite was left out, it's not because we hate it—it's because it didn't get the nominations required in the call for contenders post to make the top five" Oh yeah. They say it like four times all over the article. "This week we're going to look at five of the best keyboards, based on your nominations." " Well, we asked for them, and close to 600 nominations later, you told us what you thought." "Remember, the top five are based on your most popular nominations from the call for contenders thread from earlier in the week." "The Hive Five is based on reader nominations.
What Cool Things Can I Do with All This Free Cloud Storage Space? I have been trying to figure out a way to use a cloud / file syncing service to automate a way to get all of my ebooks on one device. I have a Nook Tablet, but I have ebooks from other services like Amazon. I can easily strip the DRM (calm down, I paid for these) on my books using Libre, which is great, but right now I have to physically connect my device and transfer them. There is a dropbox app for the Nook, but I want to automate everything as much as possible. Not sure if you can do something similar on the Nook, but maybe you can... I think I can automate the DRM removal using some scripts if can find a command line DRM removal tool for OSX. I'm also trying to do as much as possible without rooting the device. I was assuming Dropbox on the Nook would offer an "open with Nook" option. First, root your Nook Tablet — there are several excellent guides over at XDA that will allow you to run the Play Store on the stock Nook environment, or boot into an alternate ROM from an SD card.

Tor vs. I2P: The Great Onion Debate Tor vs. I2P: The Great Onion Debate In my recent Darknet series, I attempted to connect the dots on the Deep Web. I covered the two largest anonymity networks on the Internet today, Tor and I2P. While my initial four articles were meant as an introduction, I ended up receiving a lot of interesting comments and messages asking the technical differences between the two. With this article, I am going answer those questions and better explain the pros and cons of each, breaking down the networks, pitfalls, and things you should know to be safe. Back to Onions Tor and I2P are both anonymizing networks, allowing people to tunnel out of their open and non-secure environments. As a quick recap, onion routing involves wrapping your packets in multiple layers of encryption, in a system where each router that passes it along only has the key to decrypt its layer and none of the others. Tor Tor has been around quite a while longer then I2P. I2P was designed with the internal network in mind. See Also

As I mentioned, Tor is not the only option in the game, and I want to offer a general introduction to I2P. For a web browsing proxy and hidden services host, Tor gets the job done well. Invisible Internet and Onion Routing I2P initially began in 2003 as a proposed modification to Freenet. Content sent over I2P is encrypted through three-layer garlic encryption, used to verify the delivery of the message to the recipient. Step 1 Download I2P Let's start with a visit to the download page to grab the Windows binary or source code, if needed. $ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:i2p-maintainers/i2p$ sudo apt-get update$ sudo apt-get install i2p This downloads and installs the I2P router on your computer. Step 2 Start the I2P Router Now that we have the packages downloaded and installed, we must start the service. $ i2prouter start tl;dr
The O.C.D. Experience Workspace I suffer from OCD every day of my life and it effects the people in my life on a continual basis. The difference is I am no longer a victim. I have taken something that consumed, me, haunted me and distracted me and created order in my life from it. As for visual noise, that is all depending on the perspective. The O.C.D. So your solution for calming or gaining personal ownership of your disorder is by trivializing it for other people?
