DARPA wants to make a better, more secure, version of WhatsApp | Trusted Reviews

The Defence and Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) seems to be in the process of developing its own communication platform
DARPA is the U.S government agency primarily in charge of developing tech for the U.S military, but their new RACE program, standing for the Resilient Anonymous Communication for Everyone will, if the name is anything to go by, be for everyone to use.

Was haltet Ihr von Jami?


Hallo Zusammen! Ich wollte Euch fragen was Ihr von Jami (Bis vor kurzer Zeit noch Ring) haltet und ob Ihr schon Erfahrungen damit gemacht habt. Natürlich wäre auch das Aspekt Sicherheit von großem Interesse.

Also wie sieht es aus?

Hi diaspora

(fr bellow)

I was wondering about #secure #messaging app. Is #Signal still a good choice in 2019 (regarding its tight bound to Google)? I was looking to other competitors, like #Wire, which seems more reliable : https://www.securemessagingapps.com/

Does someone has some day to day experience with Wire? Is it good enough?

Thanks!
Coucou diaspora…

je me posais la question (comme fréquemment) du choix de #messagerie #sécurisée. Le temps passe et je voulais savoir si en 2019 Signal était toujours si intéressant que ça (je pense au lien étroit avec Google), vis-à-vis de la concurrence et Wire en particulier ?

Sur le papier Wire me semble plus fiable https://www.securemessagingapps.com/

Après qu’en est-il de son utilisation quotidienne ? Quelqu’un a des retours ?

Merci beaucoup 😀

Signal Messenger Has A Clever New Way To Shield Your Identity - A "sealed sender" Feature


A key part of what makes Signal the leading encrypted messaging app is its effort to minimize the amount of data or metadata each message leaves behind. The messages themselves are fully encrypted as they move across Signal's infrastructure, and the service doesn't store logs of information like who sends messages to each other, or when. On Monday, the nonprofit that develops Signal announced a new initiative to take those protections even further. Now, it hopes to encrypt even information about which users are messaging each other on the platform.

"While the service always needs to know where a message should be delivered, ideally it shouldn’t need to know who the sender is," Moxie Marlinspike, the creator of Signal, wrote on Monday. "It would be better if the service could handle packages where only the destination is written on the outside, with a blank space where the 'from' address used to be."
