Other Websites

Here are some worthy sites, with all kinds of information about your rights online, privacy, security and the politics of these issues:

Invisible Net
http://www.invisiblenet.net
A site for privacy/anonymity resources, most notably...
IIP - The Invisible IRC Proxy, which allows people to chat on IRC with complete anonymity - IP address of chatters are completely hidden from each other.
IIP is still in its infancy, but very usable - bookmark this site, and watch out for big things to come.
Herbivore
http://www.vision25.demon.co.uk/oss/herbivore/intro.html

A play on the name 'Carnivore', the FBI's 'Big Brother' mass internet surveillance system.
Herbivore is an open-source Email encryption protocol, early in its development but showing great promise
.

Amnesty International
http://www.amnesty.org
A most venerable international society committed to fighting for the freedom of 'prisoners of conscience' - people who have suffered for expressing their opinions non-violently.
Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)
http://www.epic.org
One of the major 'privacy watchdogs' on the internet. This site provides a lot of information about threats to your privacy, and legal and technical means you can employ to neutralise these threats.
Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
http://www.eff.org
EFF is one of the most reputable champions of your online rights.
Well-funded and well-resourced, EFF are constantly on the alert for governments, software companies and other organisations who would try to interfere with your rights.
The Freenet Project
http://www.freenetproject.org
Freenet is a technology which allows anyone to publish any kind of digital content. Freenet's claim to fame is that it allows you to publish and retrieve information anonymously. Once a website, or media files etc are published, Freenet's unique caching, routing and encryption make it almost impossible to trace it back to you. True freedom of expression.
