Best cloud services for email, movies, music and more Living with your head in the clouds used to mean that you were as ditzy as a TOWIE cast member, but now it's seen as a smart move. Almost everything to do with computers and gadgetry -- from listening to music to writing an office presentation -- is moving into 'the cloud'. Yes, it is a buzzword, but 'cloud' simply means that your files, music and photos, as well as fun and useful programs, are accessed via the Internet through a web browser, rather than held on your computer's hard drive. It used to be talked about as a clever option for big companies who wanted to save money, but over the last couple of years, cloud services have been targeted at you and me. You're already using a cloud service The chances are that you're using a cloud-based application without realising it. It's easy to see why webmail is so popular as it encapsulates many of the benefits of cloud computing. Storing your files on the Internet Dropbox is far from the only online storage option. Office tasks stored online

Vidalia : a Qt user interface for Tor Vidalia is a cross-platform graphical controller for the Tor software, built using the Qt framework. Vidalia runs on most platforms supported by Qt 4.3 or later, including Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X, and Linux or other Unix variants using the X11 window system. It was originally written by Matt Edman, and is currently maintained by Tomás Touceda. Vidalia lets you start and stop Tor, see how much bandwidth you are consuming, see how many circuits you currently have active, see where these circuits are connected on a global map, view messages from Tor about its progress and current state, and let you configure your Tor client, bridge, or relay with a simple interface. Included in Vidalia is an extensive help system which helps you understand all of the options available to you. Downloads You should simply download Vidalia as part of a Tor software bundle. The most recent stable release is 0.2.21, and the most recent alpha release is 0.3.1. Contribute Support & Development

Ghostery Utiliser Tor comme proxy [Tuto] - Logiciels Je tiens à rajouter pour faire mon gros chieur, que si jamais vous avez juste besoin de naviguer un petit coup de temps en temps de façon occasionnelle, vous pouvez télécharger le Tor Browser Bundle, qui contient tout dans un petit dossier : Tor, et un navigateur Firefox pré-configuré pour tourner avec. L'installation est hyper facile et y'a rien à faire. Et cette solution présente un intérêt supplémentaire, hormis la facilité d'installation. En effet, Tor ne fait qu'anonymiser les communications du navigateur, mais pas celles de ses composants. En effet, si vous vous connectez à un site web avec une animation Flash, vous serez anonymes vis-à-vis du site web grâce à Tor, mais l'animation Flash sera en communication directe et non anonyme, car ne passant pas par Tor. Ainsi, les différents composants additionnels au navigateur peuvent compromettre l'anonymat. Le Tor Browser Bundle contient un navigateur Firefox vierge et exempt de tout plugin, ce qui garantit donc un anonymat parfait.

Peace and Conflict Monitor, Tor, Anonymity, and the Arab Spring: An Interview with Jacob Appelbaum The recent revolution in Egypt that ended the autocratic presidency of Hosni Mubarak was a modern example of successful nonviolent resistance. Social Media technologies provided a useful tool for the young activist to orchestrate this revolution. However the repressive Mubarak regime prosecuted many activists and censored a number of websites. This made their activities precarious, making it necessary for activists to hide their identity on the Internet. The anonymity software Tor was a tool used by some bloggers, journalists and online activists to protect their identity and to practice free speech. Jacob Appelbaum, Tor developer, independent computer security researcher, and co-founder of the the San Francisco hackerspace Noisebrige has conducted a number of Tor trainings in the Middle East. What does Tor do and who uses it? In brief, Tor is an anonymity network that allows people to use the internet in a way that avoids traffic analysis. Can an anonymous person have credibility?

Anonymous P2P Interest in anonymous P2P systems has increased in recent years for many reasons, ranging from the desire to share files without revealing one's network identity and risking litigation[1] to distrust in governments, concerns over mass surveillance and data retention, and lawsuits against bloggers.[2] Motivation for anonymity[edit] There are many reasons to use anonymous P2P technology; most of them are generic to all forms of online anonymity. P2P users who desire anonymity usually do so as they do not wish to be identified as a publisher (sender), or reader (receiver), of information. Common reasons include: A particularly open view on legal and illegal content is given in The Philosophy Behind Freenet. Arguments for and against anonymous P2P communication[edit] General[edit] Some[who?] Easily accessible anonymous P2P networks are seen by some as a democratization of encryption technology, giving the general populace access to secure communications channels already used by governments.

How to Become Anonymous on the Internet Using Tor The internet is a scary place, and if you're like me, you don't want anyone tracking you or learning your search habits. It's a blatant invasion of privacy for companies to do this, but at least we have methods of fighting back—one of which is Tor. Tor stands for The Onion Router. It operates by donated bandwidth from its users. Tor encrypts your traffic, then forwards it through multiple nodes, like the layers of an onion, hence the name "The Onion Router". Now, be forewarned, Tor isn't fully anonymous. In this Null Byte, we're going to go briefly go over how to set up Tor, after which I will forward my traffic through it to show you that it's working.
