Mit diesem Buch erhalten Sie das E-Book inklusive! Das Internet ist eine riesige Spionagemaschine. Alles, was wir hier übertragen, wird gespeichert und ausgewertet. Regierungen weltweit greifen nach der Netzkontrolle. Ihre Komplizen, Unternehmen wie Google, Facebook, Paypal und Co, sind längst in das Geschäft mit den Daten eingestiegen und verkaufen sie meistbietend. User aller Länder vereinigt Euch und schlagt zurück, fordert Julian Assange, Mitbegründer von WikiLeaks und Amerikas Staatsfeind Nr. 1. Zusammen mit den Aktivisten Jacob Appelbaum und Jérémie Zimmermann sowie dem Chaos-Computer-Club Mitglied Andy Müller-Maguhn lotet Assange die Zukunft des Internets aus und ruft zur digitalen Revolution. Seine Botschaft: Freiheit im Internet ist machbar. "Viele von Assanges Antworten sind radikal, sicher auch wegen seiner radikalen Lebensgeschichte. Aber er stellt die richtige Frage: Kontrolliert eigentlich noch irgendjemand da draußen die Kontrolleure?" ttt - titel thesen temperamente "Cypherpunks ist eine fesselnde Pflichtlektüre, die klar macht, wie die Kontrolle, die Regierungen und Unternehmen auf das Internet ausüben, unsere Freiheit und Demokratie im Kern gefährdet." - Oliver Stone "Cypherpunks ist ein wichtiger Weckruf gegen eine mögliche dystopische Zukunft, die jetzt schon technologische Wirklichkeit ist... Den Überbringern schlechter Nachrichten tritt man immer zuerst feindselig, gar höhnisch gegenüber, dich die Geschichte zeigt das wir am Ende selbst schuld sind, wenn wir solche Warnungen in den Wind schlagen." - Naomi Wolf "Pflichtlektüre für alle, denen an der Wirklichkeit unserer Freiheiten gelegen ist." - Slavoj Žižek "Die Kraft dieses Buches liegt darin, dass in ihm ein Schweigen gebrochen wird. Hier lehnt sich ein unterdrücktes Wissen auf, das eine Warnung an alle bereithält." - John Pilger

Young men and women who grew up in the digital age are expressing their dissatisfaction with governments, the military and corporations in a radically new way. They are building machines - writing cryptographic software codes - that are designed to protect the individual in a cloak of anonymity, while institutional secrets are uploaded for public consumption. This movement is shining a light on governments' classified documents and exposing abuses of power like never before. From Australia to Iceland - organisations like Wikileaks, Openleaks, and Anonymous are just some of the more familiar groups that are enabling whistleblowers and transforming the next generation's notion of what activism can be. The revolution won't be televised. It'll be online. Andy Greenberg, technology writer for Forbes magazine, has interviewed all the major players in this new era of activism including Julian Assange - and blows the cover of a key activist, previously only presumed to exist, named The Architect who accomplished for at least two leak sites exactly what his name implies. In This Machine Kills Secrets, Greenberg offers a vision of a world in which institutional secrecy no longer protects those in power - from big banks to dysfunctional governments. A world that digital technology has made all but inevitable.

There are few original ideas in politics. In the creation of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange was responsible for one. This essay reveals the making of Julian Assange – both his ideas and his world-changing actions. Robert Manne explores Assange's unruly childhood and then his involvement with the revolutionary cypherpunk underground, all the way through to the creation of WikiLeaks. Pulling together the threads of his development, Manne shows how Assange became one of the most influential Australians of our time.

Das 'Dark Net' ist eine Unterwelt. Es besteht aus den geheimsten und verschwiegensten Ecken des verschlüsselten Webs. Ab und zu gerät ein Teil dieser Unterwelt in die Schlagzeilen, beispielsweise wenn eine Plattform für Online-Drogenhandel zerschlagen wird. Abgesehen davon wissen wir jedoch so gut wie nichts darüber. Bis heute. Basierend auf umfangreichen Recherchen, exklusiven Interviews und schockierendem, authentischem Material zeigt Jamie Bartlett, wie sich völlige Anonymität auf Menschen auswirken kann, und porträtiert faszinierende, abstoßende oder auch gefährliche Subkulturen, darunter Trolle und Pädophile, Dealer und Hacker, Extremisten, Bitcoin-Programmierer und Bürgerwehren.

"Dazzling.” —Financial Times As lives offline and online merge even more, it is easy to forget how we got here. Rise of the Machines reclaims the spectacular story of cybernetics, one of the twentieth century’s pivotal ideas. Springing from the mind of mathematician Norbert Wiener amid the devastation of World War II, the cybernetic vision underpinned a host of seductive myths about the future of machines. Cybernetics triggered blissful cults and military gizmos, the Whole Earth Catalog and the air force’s foray into virtual space, as well as crypto-anarchists fighting for internet freedom. In Rise of the Machines, Thomas Rid draws on unpublished sources—including interviews with hippies, anarchists, sleuths, and spies—to offer an unparalleled perspective into our anxious embrace of technology.

Use of the Internet is expanding beyond anyone's expectations. As corporations, government offices, and ordinary citizens begin to rely on the information highway to conduct business, they are realizing how important it is to protect their communications -- both to keep them a secret from prying eyes and to ensure that they are not altered during transmission. Encryption, which until recently was an esoteric field of interest only to spies, the military, and a few academics, provides a mechanism for doing this. PGP, which stands for Pretty Good Privacy, is a free and widely available encryption program that lets you protect files and electronic mail. Written by Phil Zimmermann and released in 1991, PGP works on virtually every platform and has become very popular both in the U.S. and abroad. Because it uses state-of-the-art public key cryptography, PGP can be used to authenticate messages, as well as keep them secret. With PGP, you can digitally "sign" a message when you send it. By checking the digital signature at the other end, the recipient can be sure that the message was not changed during transmission and that the message actually came from you. PGP offers a popular alternative to U.S. government initiatives like the Clipper Chip because, unlike Clipper, it does not allow the government or any other outside agency access to your secret keys. PGP: Pretty Good Privacy by Simson Garfinkel is both a readable technical user's guide and a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at cryptography and privacy. Part I, "PGP Overview," introduces PGP and the cryptography that underlies it. Part II, "Cryptography History and Policy," describes the history of PGP -- its personalities, legal battles, and other intrigues; it also provides background on the battles over public key cryptography patents and the U.S. government export restrictions, and other aspects of the ongoing public debates about privacy and free speech. Part III, "Using PGP," describes how to use PGP: protecting files and email, creating and using keys, signing messages, certifying and distributing keys, and using key servers. Part IV, "Appendices," describes how to obtain PGP from Internet sites, how to install it on PCs, UNIX systems, and the Macintosh, and other background information. The book also contains a glossary, a bibliography, and a handy reference card that summarizes all of the PGP commands, environment variables, and configuration variables.
