Smartphone storage capacity stats:

- 62% run out of storage space every 3 months
- 65% regretted deleting precious photos or videos to free up storage space
- 36% would delete a photo of themselves instead of friends, pets or family

Wanna know bout the effect on national security & global stability of #QuantumHacking in #Web3 #Crypto #AI #VR & #AR by nation-state-backed hacker groups like #USCyberCommand, #NorthKorea, #Iran, #Russia, & #China?

You do? Here's you're TL;DR to minimize your Units of Attention
APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) groups are a prime example of nation-state-backed hacker groups

#CozyBear (APT29), #LazarusGroup (APT38), #DoubleDragon (APT41), #FancyBear (APT28), and #HelixKitten (APT34) are some of the most well-known APT groups
These groups have been known to carry out cyber espionage, intellectual property theft, and sabotage. For instance, the #FancyBear APT group was responsible for the alleged 2016 US election interference

Thread alert! 🚨

If you are #newtocrypto & #web3, this thread🧵 should be just what you need to begin understanding the basics of #crypto, and why you should care:
So...What are #cryptocurrencies, and why should you care?! Image
At the heart of it, cryptocurrencies are digital currencies or assets that exist independently from governments or central banks. #Bitcoin is the first, and best known cryptocurrency.
Because of the underlying technology that cryptocurrencies are built upon, they give users the ability to transfer value & digital assets to other people without the need for an intermediary such as a bank. This is known as a peer-to-peer transaction.

2/6 In the name of protecting children, the EU wants to surveil people’s private messages.

🙅🏾‍♀️The verdict is: everyone is guilty until proven innocent.

They suggest using dangerous tech that will undermine #encryption & block people from accessing legitimate online services.🔓

This includes journalists, human rights defenders, minoritised groups & children.

Without privacy, young people facing abuse online & offline won't be able to use safe digital spaces to seek help.

What is a #consensus mechanism?

Quick 🦉 fact before we dive in..

Did you know that the collective noun for a group of owls is a ‘Parliament’?

This is a great starting point to understanding #consensus mechanisms on a #blockchain
1/ A #consensus mechanism on #blockchain is the process by which participants ‘agree’.

A bit like #voting in a #parliament.

This simple diagram describes the basic process:
2/ #consensus is critical to #blockchain because it determines how #data is added to the #database - that is, how the next #block is added to the chain, which as we explained last week is secured by #encryption

Today the European Commission will publish a proposal for a new law which will make the interception, analysis and monitoring of *ALL* digital communications (messengers, forums, direct messages etc.) mandatory.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam
Let me be clear - this is ILLEGAL under EU Treaties and Case Law under the principles of proportionality and necessity. This new law will turn the EU into a surveillance state.

#privacy #humanrights #chatcontrol #surveillance #dignity #csam #childsexualabuse
500 million citizens will be subjected to complete blanket surveillance - the impact on privacy will be profound. Everything we have fought for since 1949 - our values, our principles, our democracy and our human rights, will be undone with the scratch of a pen.

So...What is DERO?

I hope to have created something we can all use. I try to draw as much context as I reasonably can

Lets get it

The article sheds light on the #traceability challenges in #India, as identified in the report, which could potentially create vulnerabilities in modern #devices, #communication architecture and #cybersecurity, that can be exploited by bad actors.….
The importance of #endtoendencryption (#E2EE) is in ensuring #InformationalPrivacy, #safety & #security of the #citizens; and, the #nationalsecurity of the State. Here are the key recommendations of the report - Analysing National Security Implications of Weakening #Encryption. Image

1/ Now, I understand that you're scared, cuz that's your money & it's totally normal to be emotional.

But emotions and money don't work well together, if they work together at all.

A 99% of the rich are emotionless shits, &never care about anyone and anything except themselves
2/ That's exactly why we built all these #dApps, #DAOs, protocols, blockchains, communities, and networks. That's why we fight for #privacy & #security, for end-to-end #encryption. That's why we build on top of #mathematics and #cryptography. That's why multi-sig exist.

🇬🇧 The EU Commission could break securely #E2EE encrypted communications with the upcoming #chatcontrol2.0 proposal. If all messaging providers were forced to search private messages, this would require backdoors and undermine security! (1/7)
Attacks on #encryption are brought forward by governments time and again. Most recently here, in a November Council resolution:…

The idea: access to encrypted messages only "for the good guys/law enforcement authorities"

A fallacy.. (2/7)
..because #encryption either works for all of us, or it works for no one at all. Once broken, and be it with best intentions, backdoors in encrypted communications are accessible to anyone who wants to use them – including criminal hackers (3/7)

Right, I've had enough. We need to talk about what #encryption, #hashing and #encoding are. They are distinct things that do distinct jobs and whether you are in #CyberSecurity or not, every #coder should know the difference. So... 🧵👇

#learning #webdev #100DaysofCode
Let's start with the simplest; encoding. This is a reversible process where you transform some data into another format, then transform it back (decode) to the original without any keys etc.

Examples: json encoding, base64 encoding, html characters conversion and compression.
Encoding is most useful for transmitting and storing data. For instance, base64 is great to ensure that "unusual" characters like {};[]!'" etc can be saved / sent safely.

ENCODING PROVIDES ZERO SECURITY. None. Anyone can decode your data, it's not meant for that.

I'm calm... 😅

So what *is* this "Digital Regulation: Driving growth & unlocking innovation" policy paper? Another "strategy"? A white paper for #DPA2022?

If it's about #regulation, then how will @OliverDowden's "unashamedly pro-tech approach" protect people's #rights?…
In his introduction to "#ThePlan", @OliverDowden says he'll "shortly publish a #plan for a pro-growth data regime" 🤔

If he has an ACTUAL plan, or frankly a clue, then why not just #publish the damn thing? Why all the waffle?

Hand-wavy platitudes like these 👇 ain't worth Jack:
Just so we're clear, this "#Plan" is supposed to "start a #conversation" about "#TenTechPriorities" that @DCMS published on a "shorthand stories"(?) page that DOESN'T ONCE MENTION PEOPLE'S #RIGHTS!!…

Does this Government think it can take us for fools?

Here are the seven key recommendations from the Expert Stakeholder Consultation Report on the Indian #Encryption Debate.

Access the full report here:…

1/8 Image
A mandate for #backdoors to #encryption or originator #traceability does not fulfill the #Puttaswamy test and must be revisited.

#OriginatorTraceability mandate would result in practical complications for industry; become an obstacle to small businesses & #innovation; & the end product will be difficult to sell in the Int'l market. Such a mandate should not be implemented without further consultation.

#WhatsApp is taking the Indian government to court over the traceability clause in the new IT Rules 2021.The new IT rules include a traceability clause that requires #socialmedia platforms to locate “the first originator of the information” if required by authorities.
In its plea, it is learnt #WhatsApp is invoking the 2017 Justice KS Puttaswamy vs Union Of India case to argue that the traceability provision is unconstitutional and against people’s fundamental right to #privacy as underlined by the SC decision…
It should be noted that this rule will impact most messaging apps such as #Signal, #Telegram, Snapchat, Wire and others. Signal is completely end-to-end encrypted (E2E) and, in fact, WhatsApp relies on the Signal protocol for its own encryption. Image

Encryption on the other hand is a foreign language to me. From my research, I learned that each user needs an #AsymmetricKeyPair that can be used to #encrypt and #decrypt data.

To generate these, I used the rsa_encrypt package.…
