Technology Presentation and Discussion
Which approach to replacing Faceboogle can we recommend?
- Day 2, 20:00--21:45, c-base Mainhall
FoeBuD's Social Swarm initiative would like to discuss with you what the requirements would be for better privacy, scalability and other issues concerning a Faceboogle replacement to actually function well and be recommendable to the general public.
We're not satisfied with most of the current initiatives: They should provide end-to-end encryption under all circumstances, instead they store our personal data on dozens of servers in the clear. How much paranoia is enough for our privacy?
We'll discuss the matter with the developers of secushare.org.
Secure Share currently seems to be the most paranoid project of all social alternatives. It enables applications to interact securely between the personal devices of people while letting servers be only of occasional help in an innocuous way. It combines a flexible and efficient social communications protocol (PSYC2) with an advanced anonymizing routing technology (GNUnet). One such application would be a social platform equivalent to Faceboogle, but distributed and encrypted straight from your phone or desktop.
