“This is a must-have work for anybody in information security, digital forensics, or involved with incident handling. As we move away from traditional disk-based analysis into the interconnectivity of the cloud, Sherri and Jonathan have created a framework and roadmap that will act as a seminal work in this developing field.”

Usenet. The term conjures up images of archaic bulletin boards from the 1980s & 1990s in which jacking in meant astronomical charges every month. No longer. Ignore those who say "Don't talk about Usenet". No longer can you afford to leave your IP address out there for the world to see. You want privacy & anonymity? Come to Usenet. This book will teach you how. – Superior to P2P & Forums in every conceivable way where intelligent discussion is concerned – Immune from lawsuits – Ignored by Law Enforcement–because their p2p tracking systems don't work with Usenet! – The BEST newsgroups for discussion, mp3s/games/HD material – Learn why anonymity will decrease with peer-to-peer systems (as it always has) but increase with Usenet – Why Usenet is a free-for-all and ratio-free (unlike peer-to-peer systems) – Everything you need to know to set up a Usenet account and leech to your heart's content – Tor, PGP, Remailers/Mixmaster, SSL, Truecrypt and the like all have their place in Usenet. Learn about them here! – Which Vpn and Usenet companies might rat you out, and which won't Questions: Why should one use Usenet and not BitTorrent? – Enhanced discussions, both moderated and unmoderated, are prevalent in hundreds of thousands of different newsgroups. Usenet is where the -intelligent- users go to engage in logical discussions, and it is still the bastion of free speech and the most bang-for-your-buck where text and binary groups are concerned. What about lawsuits? – There has never been a lawsuit regarding Usenet use. The record and movie industries target torrenters for a reason: ignorance of the way those systems work. Usenet is an entirely different beast. Coupled with Tor, remailers and/or a vpn, Usenet is a fortress against Big Brother and shady law enforcement types, as well as all of the greedy lawyers who work for the millionaires in the entertainment industry. Anonymity on Usenet? – Yes it is possible to be anonymous on Usenet. Tools like Tor, Vpns, Remailers & Mixmaster provide this, however they are not necessary in every instance. It primarily depends on what you wish to accomplish, and which groups you're participating in. I go into detail about this in the book. Excerpt: Chapter 3: Usenet Anonymity "In this chapter, we’ll discuss ways you can add security (not to be confused with privacy) to your Usenet connection, so that you can participate in discussion groups without fear of persecution. These methods often lend themselves to situations where you may lose your Usenet account if you say the wrong things to the wrong people. Usenet companies are big business now, and unlike twelve years ago, will now think nothing of terminating your account of they get enough complaints. Simply being unpopular and taking a stand against the status quo in certain newsgroups can get your Usenet account banned (i.e. alt.privacy). However, with true anonymity, you can rest assured you will not be persecuted for speaking out against a tyrannical government, or a company that you work for (which has happened many times by disgruntled employees on Facebook). It should be stated at the outset that using Tor for Usenet binary downloads will actually strain the Tor network, just as it does with torrents. And to boot, whenever you use torrents, the torrent software actually sends your IP address to the recipient. It does so anonymously, in the same way a post office worker will deliver you your mail. Needless to say this defeats the purpose of using torrents. This problem is not with the Tor code, but rather the way that applications like BitLord and BitTorrent are designed. The torrent applications themselves need to be coded to allow anonymity. It is better to use Freenet with the Frost addon for p2p-like trading if you wish to remain anonymous. Tor is much more efficient at textual discussions, but the easiest method to do this anonymously is by use of remailers…"

At last, the first full account of the cypherpunks who aim to free the world’s institutional secrets, by Forbes journalist Andy Greenberg who has traced their shadowy history from the cryptography revolution of the 1970s to Wikileaks founding hacker Julian Assange, Anonymous, and beyond.

WikiLeaks brought to light a new form of whistleblowing, using powerful cryptographic code to hide leakers’ identities while they spill the private data of government agencies and corporations. But that technology has been evolving for decades in the hands of hackers and radical activists, from the libertarian enclaves of Northern California to Berlin to the Balkans. And the secret-killing machine continues to evolve beyond WikiLeaks, as a movement of hacktivists aims to obliterate the world’s institutional secrecy.
