New: #DoHoT - making & measuring practical use of DNS over HTTPS over Tor

Project, experiment, & results at: github.com/alecmuffett/do… - work in progress.

#DNSoverHTTPS #DoH #DNS #Tor @torproject ImageImage
For those who prefer to read large chunks of text on Medium rather than Github:

medium.com/@alecmuffett/d…
HA! *this* is why #DoH and @torproject make a great pair. dnscrypt.info/public-servers Image
#DoHoT updates: making practical use of DNS over HTTPS over Tor

One of the fears I hear about running a #DNS relay over #DoH over Tor is "How can you watch Netflix? The latency must be terrible!" - when there's a total of cold 4 address resolutions, and they are cached from that point onwards.

THE NEW GHOST PROTOCOL PAPER'S UP!

tl;dr —

* @GCHQ like client-side filters

* …and ghost chat participants

* …and would like everyone else to buy into them defining what E2EE means

* …because they *don't* like simple definitions of E2EE

I've been saying stuff like this for ages, maybe if @alexstamos says it too then people will listen? #DMA
Inevitably the response is something glib like "Use Matrix"
A big part of the the reason for the existence of that API was because the European Union wanted to enable people to access their data; so they created the problem, complained when the inevitable leaks happened, and are now reinventing it

Could be the attached, but my suspicion is that this is going to be another CYBER! DARKWEB! CYB3R! SYBER! CAMBRIDGE ANALYTICA‼️BRAIN CONTORL! YOU SAW AN ADVERT AND SO A RUSSIAN ARTIFISHIAL INTELLIGENCE APP MADE YOU VOTE FOR UKIP! … thing.

READING BETWEEN THE LINES:

Plucky spooks in Cheltenham but dressed for speed-dating in 2015-era Shoreditch, battle "Russian influence operations" that Nadine Dorries will soon cite as rationale for the #OnlineSafetyBill.

Token American subplots help sell the series to the US.

Back in 1991 I published an open-source password cracking tool which defined the state of the art for the next 5+ years, so much so that echoes of it can be found in all major password crackers of today.

Some folk criticised me for doing this, choosing words like these to do so: Image
I know that in general it's bad form to take a single quote out of context and use it to critique an entire essay (concerned.tech) — but I do feel that this time it's deserved.
The concerned-dot-tech essay has had extensive technical debunking, e.g.:

2/

…but that's not what bothers me.

Elsewhere in EU regulatory pipe-dreams authored by people who apparently have more good intention than understanding, the #DMA means that @WhatsApp and @signalapp should both adopt #XMPP and thereby deliver a unified "inbox" of messages.
@WhatsApp @signalapp Not making this up: ImageImage
> With a constant onslaught of messages pinging our phones and computers, who wouldn’t want that?

Well, for one, "people who use different applications to deliver different functionality and security profiles"

WhatsApp: family
Messenger: neighbours
Signal: infosec nerds
