The French government switched to Matrix, the German government evaluates free, open and federated messaging solutions, Nextcloud Talk became a great Slack replacement, public authorities in Germany consider a mass exodus from Twitter & Co after EuGH ruling, next stop Mastodon... Seems like we have both, the (political) momentum and the technology to make 2020 a great year for the free & open internet!

#GrapheneOS:

Ein gehärtetes #Android ohne Google, bitte.

Äußerlich unterscheidet es nicht viel von einem sauberen #Android_10 - nur die Google-Apps fehlen. Doch im Inneren von #GrapheneOS stecken einige Sicherheitsfunktionen. Wir haben den Nachfolger von #Copperhead_OS ausprobiert. ...

Weil ich noch so vieles wüsste, was wirklich was verändern würde und das. Alles. Nicht. Passiert.

Ist ja nicht so, dass wir nicht wüssten, was nötig wäre.

Es ist reines Sicherheitstheater. Und es ist gefährlich und dumm und macht es eher noch schlimmer. digitalcourage.de/sicherheitst

You seen the backup app that the #CalyxOS folks have been doing a load of work on?

Uses the same internal AOSP stuff as Google cloud backups and ADB backup- so no need for a rooted device. Although it'll have to be built into the OS.

Its going to output encrypted backups with yubikey support. Output to USB key or Nextcloud.
gitlab.com/calyxos/calyxos/iss

#GrapheneOS is set to use it once its finished, #HashbangOS already include it in their builds.

This is, hands down, one of the best articles I have read this week:

"I was wrong about Google and Facebook: there’s nothing wrong with them (so say we all)"

Does anyone of you have some more information about the RTL8117 chip? I've recently built myself a new computer using the Asus WS Pro X570-ACe mainboard, which uses this as some sort of BMC/IPMI solution - sadly it only looks like it will work with their propietary management server (on-prem), which is a big nono. Seems to boot some kernel, has a firmware and responds with https and LuCI (openwrt?) and some VPN port (iKVM?). Can't find _any_ info about this chip on the web though.

Substantial improvements to the security of Android over the past few years have brought it to a level where it is now being considered to provide security comparable to iPhones.
Todays release of #Android10 introduces more security improvements #^https://security.googleblog.com/2019/05/queue-hardening-enhancements.html
Theres also many Privacy improvements
#^https://developer.android.com/about/versions/10/privacy
Its becoming increasingly clear that an #AOSP based operating system, without Google Play Services can offer great privacy and security. #GrapheneOS #CalyxOS #HashbangOS and #RattlesnakeOS all provide verified boot, which helps guard against persistent compromise. #LineageOS and #OmniROM dont maintain this security feature, but are long lived and well known AOSP based operating systems.
Another measure that can be taken is not using app stores where malware is present #fdroid is widely recognised by researchers as being free of malware.
The improvements to Android, which has long been considered to have inferior security,, are being demonstrated by companies paying more for exploit chains on #Android than those for #iOS

Idk if anyone still uses Twitter but the #GrapheneOS project would appreciate some attention about the theft of their former Twitter account. If anyone does and would RT twitter.com/JonahAragon/status and the posts in Micay's thread that'd be great.

Guard against persistent compromise-

GrapheneOS/Auditor: Hardware-based attestation / intrusion detection app for Android devices. It provides both local verification with another Android device via QR codes and optional scheduled server-based verification with support for alert emails. It uses hardware-backed keys and attestation support as the foundation and chains trust to the app for software checks. - #^https://github.com/GrapheneOS/Auditor
