Hola amigos y enemigos,

Diaspora has a design problem. Podmins can block users on their own pods, but there's no mechanism for blocking the content of users of other pods from ending up on their own. For example, a podmin cab block a racist troll from their pod, but they can't block that racist troll's public posts from another pod appearing on their own. Also, users who are banned from any given pod can just create a new account on a different pod and continue to plague the network.

I know that adding a feature to block external users to the diaspora codebase is unlikely to happen quickly, if at all. There may even be philosophical objections to "breaking" federation like this. So, for those who want this feature now, I started tinkering with a workaround solution: a small proxy server that sits between D* and its front-end web server which discards incoming posts from users on a blacklist. All a podmin need do is add the user's diaspora ID to their list, and henceforth none of that user's posts or comments will make it on to their pod. All that will be necessary to ru... show more


 

Securing DNS Queries with Dotproxy

dotproxy (Github) is a robust, high-performance DNS-over-TLS proxy. It is intended to sit at the edge of a private network between clients speaking plaintext DNS and remote TLS-enabled upstream server(s) across an untrusted channel. dotproxy performs TLS origination on egress but listens for plaintext DNS on ingress, allowing it to be completely transparent to querying clients. By encrypting all outgoing DNS traffic, dotproxy protects against malicious eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attacks.

Mode
  • IKEv2 - Default connection mode, usually the fastest, but can be easily blocked.
  • UDP - This mode uses OpenVPN protocol. UDP is usually the fastest protocol to run OpenVPN on, but can also be blocked quite easily.
  • TCP - Use this if UDP fails to connect. Much more resilient to bad network conditions, but could be slower.
  • Stealth - Encapsulates OpenVPN in a TLS tunnel via Stunnel. Only use this if all other methods fail. May be handy in China.
  • Wstunnel - Encapsulates OpenVPN in a WebSock

Which websites featured on the Federation have the worst privacy?


My last post highlighted how ticking the OEmbed box to add a website picture to a post can compromise Federation users if it contains a tracker.

I also mentioned tools, like Disconnect, we could use to detect websites which track their users. In this post I reveal some of the most popular reference websites on the Federation with low privacy and high tracking rates.

I believe Federation users should consider not embedding, or at least warning their readers about the surveillance techniques carried out by these sites.

A Princeton University study identified almost a million websites that track their users. Here are just 5 examples of websites whose stories are commonly quoted on the Federation:

How can Federation users post more safely?


You know how it goes. We find a great story online and we want to share it with our supporters or feature it in our feed with appropriate hashtags for maximum reach.

But do we check the website featuring the story for privacy before we post?

When we embed a link by selecting the OEmbed box (often ticked by default) this displays an image or video on our post from the website we’ve featured.




They may look cool, but these images can contain beacons or other trackers. Embedded trackers also load into the browsers of any user who scrolls down the public feeds.

Tor fingerprints thousands of users who download its phone apps to Android


This is shocking and depressing.

Tor’s Android app download pages are laden with Google trackers!

As we can see by these screen grabs of the Guardian Project’s secure apps page, their syndication deal with the Big G means there are two Google tracker requests on this page (from 2 Google embeds, Gstatic and GoogleAPIs)

Google APIs tends to employ different Google bits like fonts and can be made safe if tweaked by the website's developers, but Gstatic is a collector.

I haven’t checked the HTML but these are probably loaded by the Google widget, bottom left on th... show more
