File Encryption
VeraCryptVeraCrypt is open source cross-platform disk encryption software. You can use it to either encrypt a specific file or directory, or an entire disk or partition. VeraCrypt is incredibly feature-rich, with comprehensive encryption options, yet the GUI makes it easy to use. It has a CLI version, and a portable edition. VeraCrypt is the successor of (the now deprecated) TrueCrypt.
CryptomatorOpen source client-side encryption for cloud files - Cryptomator is geared towards using alongside cloud-backup solutions, and hence preserves individual file structure, so that they can be uploaded. It too is easy to use, but has fewer technical customizations for how the data is encrypted, compared with VeraCrypt. Cryptomator works on Windows, Linux and Mac - but also has excellent mobile apps.
ageage is a simple, modern and secure CLI file encryption tool and Go library. It features small explicit keys, no config options, and UNIX-style composability.

THANK YOU. Gotta keep it live. I go through the sites--sometimes too quickly just in search of post-worthy material. The BurpSuite is what pivotal to the field. I'm comprehensive in that it covers every aspect of vulnerability scanning.

Do you personally get information from any of the sites mentioned above regarding how to cash out all of your upvotes safely?

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 1 votes · 10 months ago · Link

I look through the site for newsworthy posts. My posts is the inverse of my value. At some point, I'll be thin air.

/u/newbieforever2018 "You've got ★bail★" · 2 votes · 10 months ago · Link

I believe that your value increases exponentially with each quality topic such as this one. The way that the math works out is that your fans already know to expect quality no matter what the topic but there are always noobs who first stumble upon your works and all of them tell their friends thus becoming a threat to your dread private message systems capabilities to contain the volume of messages generated as responses. So one could say that you are a drain on the systems resources but in a good way if that makes sense. Thanks Mr Alp wherever you are.

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 1 votes · 10 months ago · Link

Thousand points for that. I'm about to head home and I can't wait to start that drive. Glad Mr. Alp has been taking care of you.

I'm a big fan of privacytools, however, I preferred them when they were electing to be impartial and not affiliated with any companies. Whilst not exhaustive it's a good starting point

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 1 votes · 9 months ago · Link

These days (honestly) it's so hard to find the impartial (I don't even watch news). If I scoop up a pile do you think you can sort it out for me within a week or so?

Great resources. A few additions I would add would be the Whonix and Kicksecure wikis, which in my opinion together amount to an incredibly comprehensive overview of the full ins and outs to the technical side of OpSec for this discipline. The complete content of both wikis are available for download on GitHub, also, so that they can be viewed offline. Another resource for articles and papers called The Counter-Surveillance Resource Center hosts some good content. Lastly, Free Haven's Selected Paper's in Anonymity is a Tor Project-affiliated bibliography of a massive collection of papers dating back to 1977 on the subject of anonymity.

hmmmmmm.... PRivAcy TooLSss.io???? when it comes to privacy and security we should consider not to trust on advertisings, they're shilling lots of software under USA jurisdiction(the country #1 on massive data collection) , for example: Brave, DuckDuckgo, BitWarden.

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 1 votes · 9 months ago · Link

I just went through the first 45% of the site --- 98% of the objects mentioned were free. Brave, DuckDuckGo and BitWarden will find their place shortly. Brave is already making deals for a paid VPN and Telemetry with Microsoft. Everything eventually finds its proper place.

/u/FanFanFan · 1 votes · 8 months ago · Link

didn't the privacytools team except their leader leave and make a new project privacyguides? It does not have affiliate links, as far as I know.

some of privacytools' current recommendations are weird, like IPFS, it does not have anything to do with privacy AFAIK.

I recommend removing That One Privacy Site from this list.

While it was once a fantastic resource, That One Privacy Site has merged with SafetyDetectives (Libreddit onion mirror). Safety Detectives is owned by Kape Technologies, a super sketchy company which owns both multiple VPNs and VPN review sites (big conflict of interest!), and the Safety Detectives VPN page (which thatoneprivacysite.net now redirects to) conveniently decided that 3 Kape-owned VPNs belong in the top 4. Windscribe (a competing VPN company, so don't overlook that bias) wrote a good post about this consolidation of the VPN industry which talks specifically about Kape with sources.

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 1 votes · 9 months ago · Link

Thank you. I need good insight like this. 'That One Privacy Site' will be removed.

If you know of any good ones, please let me know.

/u/An_I2P_User · 1 votes · 9 months ago · Link

Here are some resources I like...

Techlore makes videos (cross-posted to YouTube, LBRY/Odysee, and PeerTube) and maintains community-driven data on VPNs.

The New Oil also makes videos (YouTube, Odysee, PeerTube) and writes a blog.

These two do a podcast together called Surveillance Report.

Michael Bazzell runs a site called IntelTechniques and does a podcast called The Privacy, Security, & OSINT Show (formerly The Complete Privacy & Security Podcast).

Switching.Software is a great resource for finding more private/secure/ethical alternatives (along the lines of PRISM Break).

PrivacyGuides.org (onion) is run by the people who used to run PrivacyTools.io. (See this blog post and this Reddit post for more on that.)

Some other privacy-friendly frontends:

There's also https://farside.link/ which lists many instances and can automatically redirect you to an instance of a given frontend. (See its GitHub repo for more info.)

Should I place thenewoil.org under privacy guides?

Let's test out a privacy re-redirect.

Yeah new oil is privacy guides. I've heard lib redirect is better than privacy redirect but they're just extensions for automatically redirecting to proxy sites.

A JavaScript add-on whereas these are mostly straight sites.

Perhaps be good for add a section of hardware that list tools of security for enhance opsec?

Thing like the purism and privacy beast laptops, reliable HSMs (eg monero wallets of hardware, U2F keys, Nitrokey for HEADS Evil Maid of defeat, etc), BusKill for the tripwire, etc
