Like many problems with targeted ads, both Naviance, the platform, and college officials who use the platform to target applicants by race, are at fault. Children aren't products.

With , it is now possible to get all updates from official HTTPS sources. In combination with other work from the apt developers, this improves privacy and provides backup security

Our first build of Conscrypt which includes the next version of known as (Encrypted ClientHello) is now available for Android and Java:

implementation 'info.guardianproject.conscrypt:conscrypt-android:2.6.alpha1638179154.job1828169525'

Yet another of the many ways that breaks the open : connecting without a User Agent gives 403 Forbidden with an obscure "error code 1010". My test suite works fine on all the other sites, only Cloudflare does this.

One of the hazards of is that a deployment could end up leaking as much information as a non-ECH TLS connection if the ECH Config in DNS is only associated with a given domain.

is leading the charge to deliver a truly mobile device, it is also . Since it is based on , you can port it to lots of devices, even if they do not support a locked bootloader.

created an ecosystem where the software available there is reviewed and trusted, so the system can prioritize flexibility over security. In Play, there are many apps we feel forced to use, despite knowing they are unethical or are tracking us. Google responds by locking down to reduce data leaks, which also reduces the system's flexibility. puts the user in control so we can build user-friendly systems without being forced into bad decisions.

I'd love to see data on what verified boot actually stops. The ideal malware implants itself at the lowest level possible. Is there good public data on these kinds of exploits on etc? Does standard spyware do that? Writing to /system requires a root exploit, lots of malware never gets root. How often there are vulns in itself. Here's a real world full of verified boot:

Does anyone know how to query the system for information about Trichrome Libraries They seem to be installed as APKs, but the regular way of querying for app metadata does not work. For example, is there a separate concept of "Version Code" for Trichrome libraries?

Anyone know what ULR is?

"Suppose a user has disabled permissions to, say, Google Maps for Mobile (GMM). With client-side location, GMM will not get location, as the user intended However, they can still get a place card (e.g. Riddler) via ULR-->████-->GMM server--> GMM client. (URL has GmsCore's location permissions, not GMM's). This seems like a bypass to Android's permissions model."

NetCipher v2.2.0-alpha released! Supports the new TorServices app; adds new libraries for enabling Tor/proxying with Conscrypt and WebViews. Get them on Maven Central:


If anyone is looking for a / project to hack around with, jtorctl now builds with (from or ), , and with sketches of Ant. The idea is that if all the build tools make the same JAR, no need to trust the build tool. or


New AI law proposal agrees with the risks and harms of biometric mass surveillance but *fails* to properly ban it.

Companies and authorities aren't prohibited from these practices and the law enforcement ban has way too many exceptions. 🤦

Our thoughts:



61 MEPs from different political groups just asked the EU to ban biometric mass surveillance, days before proposes new laws on AI.
