Telecomix Crypto Munitions Bureau is part of Telecomix. This wiki is used for discussing technology and philosophy. This wiki is also essentially the technical twin to the political WeRebuild.EU wiki. Both share the same fundamental goal: To defend and increase information freedom.
Telecomix Crypto Munitions Bureau?
A decentralized organization without membership. The bureaus goals are described in this paper issued by Cameron. Beyond that, we also do whatever we want.
- Slideshow on hacktivism, encryption, online anonymity, & darknets 101 now up at: http://scr.bi/yLxMak (same with https) & http://www.multiupload.com/IF7ZQOG1U7
- WSJ Surveillance Catalog / Spy Files aka axis of evil
- HTTPS/SSL probably dead: Deep Packet Spying Breaches Gmail and All Security, also: Hackers break SSL encryption used by millions of sites.
- Added a basic guide to Deploying, Implementing and Using Cryptographic Systems.
- AES weakened by 2 Bits
- TCMB Station 7 checks in for the first time :)
- Older news
- Full communication and storage system

- Silc : Secure Internet Live Conferencing : IRC like but much more safer (to be written) SILCNET Offical Website
- Alternatives to Certificate Authorities
- Anonymous and Alternative Networks
- Tor (Peer reviewed, understood and very secure anonymity network.)
- I2P (Likely unsafe in extremely dangerous situations, peer review needed)
- OnionCat (Anonymous IPv6 tunneling on top of Tor/I2P.)

- CJDNS (this is not Domain Name System!)
- Do we need something better?
- General-purpose VPN software
- curvetun (lightweight multiuser IP tunnel based on elliptic curve cryptography)
- OpenVPN (Direct p2p VPN.) – Lacking peer review
- VTun – Lacking peer review
- PPTP (Knowledge needed to set up a linux computer as an IPREDATOR-router for your entire net.) PPTP is not safe to use

- Byzantium Secure live CD for emergency situations to communicate and collaborate.
Needed Software – projects
Software we may need for further projects, still to be found or written
- Dialup for Egypt
- SIP Software Modem for Dial-Up / BBS projects
- BBS gateway to give access to web services through low bandwidth connexions
- Anonymous Base Station
- Blocklists – firewall all authorities!
- Trusted Platform Module
