>Huawei has been blocked from using Google software on its phones, dealing a huge blow to the Chinese tech giant. New Huawei-made phones will not have access to apps such as Gmail, Google Maps and the Google Play store. Existing phones will still have the apps but users will not be able to upgrade to newer versions of the Android operating system.

>Huawei can still use Android’s open-source alternative but it will not include Google’s own-brand apps such as Gmail. Google’s move comes after President Trump banned Huawei from U.S. networks, and the firm said today it was taking ‘steps to comply with recent government actions’.

>The move from Google deals a major blow to the expansion of Huawei and is likely to cripple its expansion.

<This is an unprecedented move that ostracizes what may currently be the best phone manufacturer in the world. Consider that there is no alternative. Phones are either iPhones with iOS or Android devices. No matter how good of an alternative to these Google apps Huawei makes, the fact that their phones don’t have official Google apps will definitely influence people looking for a new phone.

>Huawei confirmed it has developed its own operating system that could replace Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows should it be barred from using American-made products. The prospect of being banned from such products has intensified for Huawei in the wake of its recent lawsuit against the US government.

>“We have prepared our own operating system. Should it ever happen that we can no longer use these systems, we would be prepared,” Huawei executive Richard Yu said.

Could this be a chance for a non-Google fork of Android to enter the mainstream market?

Yaknow, if I installed 10+ new systems every day, I might think about it. Or maybe I just would write a script for it once, because it's easier than interfacing with some program to lookup possible block devices and make uuids out of them. We're working hot garbage bazaar here.

Some encrypted block of data isn't exactly a filesystem. It could be anything, and mount would rightfully choke up if not for some other program to make actual addressing available. That's why you use crypttab or whatever.

I don't use disk encryption, because if glowers will come for me in my country, I will be just tortured to say all keys, and I am not sure about yours either. I mean, if there is a lot at stake for them, they might just torture you.

But AFAIK disk encryption is not really "hacked together" in loonix.

What are /tech/'s thoughts on the feasibility of a global meshnet as an alternative to the internet?

I have to say, updating the *Internet as a platform* is an interesting idea. We all eventually replace or update or patch our internet-connected devices, why not also the means that makes them useful? When considering the internet as a platform, how would you improve it?

I am particularly interested in this idea not only for the fact that it would mitigate censorship and allow universal access but also because i have come to realize that the Internet is the great equalizer in the digital age. Anyone can log on and find an answer; start a business; find a home; hire an employee; and so on.

As i see it, an alternative internet is an opportunity for humanity to create something truly special, a non-natural resource that is unlimited and free. De-centralizing such a powerful resource would, in my opinion, be the only way ensure its endurance in the future as a resource that connects and informs.

I would love to hear some other perspectives on the topic. For me, I want to be free from interference.

Interesting info on JS8Call (ultra-low bandwidth mode) which has some mesh networking capabilities:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0TkJJIsY3o

Problem is AFAIK it can only make one hop. There's no routing built in, so some kind of protocol should have to be built on top of that. And then some kind of solar powered relay needs to be made so people can set it up cheaply. The transmitters can be as small as this https://www.hamradioreviews.eu/2017/01/23/keychain-qrp/

OP,

Not exactly related, but if you are in the US and you want to establish a municipal mesh net, you should put together a proposal to install some Ubiquiti APs or other turn-key mesh WiFi routing hardware. Get a couple neighborhood association busybodies into the idea, get Planning staff to consider it, and then apply for a FEMA PDM grant to buy and install the routers. Most PDM grant applications are for stupid make-work construction contracts for "underserved" groups, so your competition is weak. Pitch the idea as a resilience and continuity of government plan. Have directional links between the library, emergency services and city hall so that they have a secondary, local comms network if the ISP goes down. Sprinkle in some sob story about how a free muni-net could help black people apply for jobs or get an ejucayshun from their smart phones while they're hanging out at the bus stop.

I think the problem with the Internet as-is is the fact that a small cartel of telecoms owns the physical infrastructure, and if they drop packets to tor/i2p/freenet or wherever, then you really can't do anything about it.

Yeah that's what I mean. If you do that shit on the regular in the US you're bound to get a visit from law enforcement and get your shit pushed in in federal prison.

Even the Brazilian government has been pressured into arresting people.

Now with commercial satellites there's probably less enforcement (unless they decide to throw the computer fraud act at you if they're really pissed off), but the tx frequencies aren't easy to find (for rx freqs just point a dish at it and scan the spectrum on an sdr), and it requires better equipment than satcom which is designed to be able to be reliably talked into with a potato.

Today I woke up thinking about doing a new network. I thought such thing could be fun even if only I use it to connect my computers.

The most distinctive feature would be the asynchronous packets. A node can send a packet to disconnected node, and this packet would be stored (for a limited time) by intermediate nodes until it could be delivered. Of course, the packets would be end-to-end encrypted to prevent the routing nodes from reading the content.

Now, I'm in doubt about a point. Should the network be anonymous? I think this could be achieved by identifying the destination node with a code that only this node would recognize (think of something like an RSA signature) and each packet must be distributed and stored only its claimed. But them, how can a DoS be mitigated if you cannot identify the source? Of course, you can know the where the packets came from (the IP address if the network is on top of the Internet), but a clever attack would route the packets through different nodes in the network.

So, in short, opinions? Suggestions for reading? I will be checking the FreeNet because the cache capability may be something similar to what I describe as asynchronous packets.

Oh, so you're talking about onion routing. Yeah, I was talking about mesh metworking separate from the Internet, another thing entirely. Onion routing is pretty much a solved problem, go look at Tor, i2p, Freenet, IPFS, DHS for peer exchange, etc. for ideas. But Tor is already pretty much as good as it gets except for a few tweaks here and there, and yeah they do it with public keys for the hidden services.

OP here. First, thanks for the discussion and suggestions.

This would be hobby project, so there aren't any big or overly specific goals. One idea I have in mind is to connect devices I have physical access (i.e.: desktop computer, laptop, phone, work computer) in a private network and use the asynchronous features to keep files, messages or a database of events synchronized. Some devices may connect through the internet and others through LAN (or even directly coping files like an Sneakernet). Of course, for this anonymization wouldn't be so important, that and the question about DoS attacks was out of interest in the topic. But, it could be an interesting feature in case some nodes function from devices I don't own and control completely.

Another idea I have related to this use case is that of "asynchronous streams". Some server node could host a stream that would be just a sequence of permanently stored packets that can be retrieved starting from any point. This could be useful for file (o message) synchronization, so a node would host (o broadcast and let other host) periodic information about the changes and subscribed nodes read the stream continuing from where then left last time.

Of course, I'm aware something like this was in use with NNTP/UUCP before the Internet and permanent connections became widely available.

For now this are just ideas, but I think I can learn something at least and maybe release some code if I advance enough.

>>1072178

About mesh networks, smartphones connecting with each other directly through NFC, Bluetooth or WiFi in densely populated areas could make an alternative network, if enough devices participate.

All the examples of onion routing are interesting study cases, though not all of them have the asynchronous feature (I think IPFS and DHS with bitorrent does) and I'am not sure theyPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Not him, but it probably means a network where if somebody accuses you of requesting, sending, or receiving certain data -like cp- you can produce tangible proof signed by other nodes on the network that you never requested, sent, or received that data, and if you did and somebody accuses you of it and you can't produce evidence, it becomes very hard to refute the accusation (as opposed to completely anonymous networks where everybody can refute accusations with about the same level of credibility). Thus non-refutability, being unable to refute something.


 No.1072705

>>1072635

No, it's the other way around. You can present proof that a certain packet originated from a certain node. It's a proof of knowledge, proofs of ignorance are impossible (in most/all nontrivial cases).

SICP doesn't cover everything, but at least you will learn some computer science. UNIX weenie courses, the kind that make people hate computers, don't even teach computer science. They teach how to run UNIX and compile C programs. Instead of calling it a UNIX class, they give it a name like "Operating System Engineering" (aka UNIX kludges) and "Great Ideas in Computer Architecture" (aka RISC and UNIX brain damage).

>Great Ideas in Computer Architecture (Machine Structures)

>C Intro, Pointers

>C Arrays, Strings, Pointers

>C Memory Management, Usage

>Intro to Assembly Language, RISC-V Intro

Learning a new OS used to be something people would do when they get a new computer, but because of all the brain damage in UNIX, it takes many times longer to learn (years instead of weeks) even though it has less functionality and fewer features (unless you count bugs and remote exploits as features).

A real computer science class about operating systems would teach many different ones, and probably only one UNIX-like OS as a bad example. And you would know how much UNIX sucks just by comparing it to the other operating systems you learned. They don't even have to "teach" it because it's obvious. You could fail the class and still learn that UNIX sucks, just by having to use it after using something better.

They do it through radio waves which are actually microwaves that can bend through the air and concentrate power directly on your board, which turns it on. It's the same technology they use to shock superman's balls.

if you remove the power cable then it is really off(if laptop then you remove the batteries too). if you dont then its indeed in some standby mode since it can be started with a modern non mechanical button. the old computers that were really off would be turned on/off with a real mechanical switch.

POZILLA FIREFOX: COMING IN 2020

How are all the Firefox forks different from each other?


 No.1072215

Palemoon seems too far away from the stock firefox user experience and isn't compatible with my config and most of my addons.

I've tried Waterfox earlier, copied over my ff profile and now that I installed it again to try it out it worked perfectly with that profile with especially all the extensions I have in FF.

I thought, cool, but I need to update that profile. Backed up the profile and replaced copied it over anew from FF. Cool, but the addons didn't work (incompatible). So I reset it, copied over everything but addons and extensions files and folders - worked, but all the tabs I had open in firefox (about 300) wouldn't load now. I fixed that by creating bookmarks of all tabs so I could just close the windows and end the broken session, which worked, but I found my addons wouldn't work either.

I then got back to the backup of the old profile with the addons that worked, but they didn't. Still incompatible.

The logical conclusion here is that I have to invest some time, figure out alternative addons and take the time to really configure Waterfox rather than copying everything over.

But I have some hope it might be due to the certificates, because again, it worked 20 minutes ago with exactly the old profile I made a backup of. Does anyone know? The "studies" thing that fixed addons in Firefox lately obviously isn't available here. Also it's hard to believe there is no NoScript for Waterfox. The search doesn't find any though. Also some Addons appear to be enabled, but where are the menu options and fucking icons?

I remember there being trick to make it work, I was just too lazy to try them out last time. I have no hope the solution is still among those 300 tabs.

The problem isn't software, but cost and risk. Who pays for all the bandwidth? Who pays to host the servers? Who accepts the risk of owning an endpoint with massive throughput of CP and drug deals every day?

That answer seems to be the US Government.

If the network was well designed it wouldn't matter if the exit node was CIA (unless you were dumb enough to use plain text).

All that matters is that your traffic goes through at least a couple non compromised nodes.

Tor's default is 3 nodes including the Guard server and exit node (so really only one non CIA node if you're lucky).

You can increase this number, but guess what. THAT BY ITSELF DEANONYMIZES YOU! I'm not making that up! The number is sent in plaintext!


 No.1072169

>>1072162

The idea of users donating bandwidth seems great, if they can fix it somehow. And just purge specific compromised exit nodes(?) I don't see a download for HORNET yet, 2016 posts suggest it's still being developed (then). I often wonder if somewhere on the darkweb, people are sharing better technology by now, or selling it.

I'm just interested in security, don't care what other people are using it for, ideally they wouldn't be using it to commit crimes, but let's face it, as long as criminals exist, crime will exist. Gotta be people out there coding stuff that rivals the best known online security though.

Recently I was really interested in what DietPi developed for the raspberry pi, an easy tor wifi hotspot, haven't been able to get it going beyond the raspi itself, no hotspot capability, even with an edimax attached or editing password configs, meh.

2 or 3 years ago I read a post in some random website by one of the lead developers behind arch saying something along the lines of "I don't know where you people come from, the entire purpose of arch was to test software, which includes having the most complete release of everything in its latest version by default so that we can test it, if you're looking for a minimalist distro you picked one that directly opposes your goals"

I can't find it now, does anyone have a link to it?

I really like Hyperbola, the project is pretty good. Probably in the future must become superior to the Parabola.

Aside from that. A good portion of internet users uses blockers.

Even if you use UMatrix. Detecting what exactly you block would require webpage specific javascript. Nobody does that.
