OpenSSL 1.1.1 Audit Fundraising

Updated Apr 26, 2018

Around this time last year, I helped the OSTIF spread the word about a fundraiser for an audit of OpenVPN, a critical tool for our privacy.  This year, they are going above and beyond the scope of last year’s successful drive, and are now beginning to fundraise to audit an even MORE fundamental software toolkit – affecting not just our VPNs – but almost everything that uses encryption online – OpenSSL.

That One Privacy Site – Patreon Campaign

Written August 21, 2017

Two years ago, I decided to start taking privacy more seriously.  At the time, as most people do, I had been using a host of software and subscribing to services that are privacy-unfriendly.  Many of these companies also showed signs of being evil and were increasingly apathetic when called on it.

A Shift in Priorities

The last several weeks have seen some very unfortunate changes in the geopolitical realm where privacy is concerned.  We’ve seen a number of oppressive laws enacted and others meant to protect our rights, disbanded in the short space of about a month.  The fight for our privacy marches forward and this means a demand for more action from you and me.

The VPN Review Selection Process

Written Mar 6, 2017

In June of last year, I published my first VPN review on That One Privacy Site.  Just previous, I had announced how I wanted to conduct this feature – namely eliminating bias, and including transparency regarding the selection of the services to be reviewed.  I began using random.org’s “trails” feature which made public the services that were chosen using said website’s number generator.  Early on, this solution proved useful, as anyone could get on that site as they wished, and could see the last 10 services that were rolled.  Thus, it was easy to provide transparency when a service was selected.
