Free Encrypted Decentralized Cloud Storage: XOR Drive

There are lots of bookmarks managers out there which you can use to save your bookmarks. Also, all the mainstreams browsers have bookmark managing and syncing capabilities. But, in case you are too concern about your privacy and do not want to sync some or all your bookmarks with Google, Mozilla or any other account then, you can use other privacy-focused solutions to save bookmarks securely. This article covers a free decentralized bookmark manager to securely save your bookmarks.

Free Encrypted Decentralized Cloud Storage: XOR Drive

When a user creates a TrueCrypt volume, a number of parameters need to be defined, such as the size of the volume and the password. To access the volume, the TrueCrypt program is employed to find the TrueCrypt encrypted file, which is then mounted as a new drive on the host system.

Consider this example where an encrypted TrueCrypt volume is stored as a file named James on a thumb drive. On a Windows system, this thumb drive has been mounted as device E:. If one were to view the E: device, any number of files might be found. The TrueCrypt application is used to mount the TrueCrypt file; in this case, the user has chosen to mount the TrueCrypt volume as device K: (Figure 23). Alternatively, the thumb drive could be used with a Mac system, where it has been mounted as the /Volumes/JIMMY volume. TrueCrypt mounts the encrypted file, James, and it is now accessible to the system (Figure 24).

One of the most interesting — certainly one of the most controversial — features of TrueCrypt is called plausible deniability, protection in case a user is "compelled" to turn over the encrypted volume's password. When the user creates a TrueCrypt volume, he/she chooses whether to create a standard or hidden volume. A standard volume has a single password, while a hidden volume is created within a standard volume and uses a second password. As shown in Figure 25, the unallocated (free) space in a TrueCrypt volume is always filled with random data, thus it is impossible to differentiate a hidden encrypted volume from a standard volume's free space.

The Windows command prompt provides an easy tool with which to detect EFS-encrypted files on a disk. The cipher command has a number of options, but the /u/n switches can be used to list all encrypted files on a drive (Figure 27).

What to look for in a secure mobile phone will differ from individual to individual and the budget. As a starting point, the application can be software encrypted. Since 2016, WhatsApp has been offering this for free. Other paid-for applications and dedicated devices also submit this approach. It is the easiest and the cheapest way to improve security over cellular calls and texts.

From year to year, not only the number of Internet users, but also the amount of information they consume. According to experts, at the moment, the Internet is used by more than 1.8 billion people around the world. And now imagine how much they absorb and betray information. This is just an incredible number of zettabytes that need to be stored somewhere and need to be quickly transferred. In connection with such a great demand there were such hosting services as cloud data storage. I think you understand what I'm talking about, as familiar with Yandex disk, Google drive and other storage. It would seem that everything is fine and we have a great opportunity to use additional virtual space to store any documents, important files and other necessary materials. However, we do not think how safe to use such storage, whether they can guarantee us the full security and safety of our data? As it turned out, not all resources can guarantee this. Therefore, everything that is stored in such stores is quite vulnerable to hacker attacks. What does this apply not only to private (personal data), but also data of large companies.

Freenet is free software which lets you publish and obtain information on the Internet without fear of censorship. To achieve this freedom, the network is entirely decentralized and publishers and consumers of information are anonymous. Without anonymity there can never be true freedom of speech, and without decentralization the network will be vulnerable to attack.

Users contribute to the network by giving bandwidth and a portion of their hard drive (called the "data store") for storing files. Unlike other peer-to-peer file sharing networks, Freenet does not let the user control what is stored in the data store. Instead, files are kept or deleted depending on how popular they are, with the least popular being discarded to make way for newer or more popular content. Files in the data store are encrypted to reduce the likelihood of prosecution by persons wishing to censor Freenet content.
