“Encryption works. Properly implemented strong crypto systems are one of the few things that you can rely on. Unfortunately, endpoint security is so terrifically weak that NSA can frequently find ways around it.”
As it has become painfully obvious that the NSA has been poking its nose where it doesn’t belong it behooves us all to go on the offensive. This means that unless you are planning on trashing your computer and ditching your phone that you will need to find ways to work around the surveillance state. With that in mind the Freedom of the Press Foundation has put together a handy guide that will teach you about encryption systems, trustworthy software, Tors, and other useful tools.
There is still no guarantee that you will be able to outwit the surveillance apparatus but the Freedom of the Press Foundation wants to give us all a fighting chance!
