Cipher Morsel - TO BE UPDATED

1. Browser/Browsing Anonymity

It's usually better to install a new browser, and use the second and newly installed browser exclusively when anonymity is required or desired.  This means that you never accidentally surf thinking that you are doing so anonymously when in reality you are identifiable. Two free open source browsers that work well with the software that provides the anonymity are firefox and seamonkey.  If you do not use both of these browsers at the moment we suggest that you download and install the one that you do not currently use and configure that for anonymity.

Browser download links:


nb:  the Sea monkey project is actually a suite of applications, the only one of three or four applications that you actually need is the browser, though it matters not if you install the whole suite.

Once you have installed a browser that you will use just for anonymous surfing, you can then install the anonymity software itself.  This actually consists of a bundle of three or four bits of software as follows:

- Tor
- Vidalia
- Polipo
- Tor button (possible/optional if using Firefox).

Tor is the anonymity app, vidalia a GUI for it, and polipo a http/https proxy that strips cr*p (that can leak identity) from http/s requests, etc.  The version for Windows 7:

You may not understand this next link (yet), but for completeness, and so you have something to 'play' with later 9with which you can test your install of software further down this page is working somewhat), the digital signature for the above file:

Instructions on installation + background; please understand what Tor does, and more importantly, DOES NOT protect ...

The above will get you anonymous browsing, which - with a web-based email account that is created whilst using tor, and without providing your real details, etc ... provided you NEVER connect to it without using Tor ... means you now have 'safe' email.

Before you do any of that though, check you have TOr correctly working:

2)  Anonymous & Secure IM

Download and install Pidgin instant messenger, and wire it to work with a secure (SSL) server in Switzerland/operated from Switzerland, and Tor:


Once you have pidgin installed, click "accounts", then manage accounts, then new account, then enter any username you choose in the username field, and "" in the server field, use a ENORMOUS PASSPHRASE, and tick the box 'create new account on the server'.... *BEFORE* you click OK, click the advanced tab, and ensure the 'always use SSL' box is checked, then on the next tab "Proxy", you need to set iit up with the following info:

Type: socks 5 


Port: 9050

Leave all of the other fields BLANK on the proxy page ... so that it's ONLY configured as above ... 

After all of that, ealise it's NOT anonymous, ATM (a bug has been found);

3)  Encrypted Email

There are many ways to skin this cat, but you need to choose which you prefer; fully automated, or quite a bit of manual ...  If the former, you need to:

a)  install Thunderbird (mozilla email app):
    install the 'enigmail' application (t-bird addon)

b)  Boot t-bird, click "openPGP", then "key management", then "Generate", then "New Key pair" and follow the on-screen instructions ...

c)  once you've got a success message (that you have created a key pair) ...  click 'openPGP' again (in t-bird) ... click 'key management' again, and you shouold see your key in the main window of the key manager, if not, click the 'display all keys by default' box ... and it should appear ...

d)  highlight your key (click on it I mean!) ... Right click ... and you should see an entry 'copy public key to clipboard' - click that, and then paste the clipboard into a message to us via your youtube account (so we have some level of authentication that it's your key indeed!).

If you prefer the manual way (which you will have to use EACH TIME you encrypt or decrypt if you do not automate per above ...

a) Install PGP4win:
   (this is a crypto-suite containing everything you need)

b) once installed, boot the app GPA, click 'keys', and then 'new key' ... ibid the above ... once you've got a key created, highlight it, right click, copy to clipboard, then paste it through youtube to us. :)

Bonus (if you use firefox):

More soon.
