Survival in the Digital Age Stories for Info-Activists about Digital Security by Tactical Tech You probably know ONO by now. ONO is a friend of information users on a mission to explain how digital technology and communication might be putting you and your friends in danger. In previous episodes ONO revealed the secret dangers of mobile devices and explored the dark sides of using internet in public spaces. ONO’s mission is to make it safer to use technology that we have come to take for granted. There are many services we all now use without thinking about how they work. Email is an example. Most of us send email without looking at its settings. But if we are not careful our most private email exchanges can easily become public. "Modem" "Internet Service Provider" "Country-Gateway" "The Internet" If we send email that travels through open channels, our emails are like postcards that anyone can read along the way. But solutions are very simple. All you need to do is to be careful how you use your email accounts. When you use web email always check that your URL starts with HTTPS. The S on the end should remain during logging in and during sending emails. The S tells you the connection is secure and can’t be intercepted. If there is no S it means your channel is not secure! If you are using a separate email application such as Outlook or Thunderbird that resides on your computer check your setting and make sure the application uses “S…S…L” Keep your private email separate from your work or project email. Use different identities for different projects, and change identities regularly if your privacy and security is essential. If you want to minimise the chances of interception, use the same online email service for all project members. This reduces how far your email travels and the chances of it being intercepted. Do not send emails to addresses outside of your group. Don’t share or show your password to your mail services. Don’t save them in your application settings. Once given away passwords will open access to all your emails. Emails carry hidden information including the unique IP number of the computer you are using which can then be traced. Use a web-client such as Internet Explorer or Firefox to send your emails if you don’t want to reveal where you are sending your email from. Make sure in your settings you are not giving away information of who you are, your email or other personal details. There are other ways to protect your email communication. You can find many of them in Tactical Tech’s Security in a Box. It is translated into languages other than English! Credits Don't leave a trace! Use roborubber! I believe I said Technical Tech. That wasn`t my intention. Two demerit points! Dunce cap. Be in the corner! lights out. Everybody go home. Bye-Bye.
