DailyDirt: Just Because You're Paranoid, Doesn't Mean They're Not Watching You...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Folks everywhere are understandably increasingly concerned about their privacy and who has access to their communications and online data (and metadata). Fortunately, there may be some technological solutions to help encrypt, or just make it a bit harder for "them" to spy on, your messages and private info. But even with fancy encryption algorithms, you can't let your guard down -- it might only take a $5 wrench and some unscrupulous tactics to break a password. Still, if you want "them" to spend five bucks on a wrench, here are a few things you might want to install. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    If it's working on BSD (or OSX for that matter), why not Solaris? They are all largely SysV (R4) descendents (and contributors). Probably not a huge deal (mostly) to port.
