Plausible Deniability ToolKit
We can only hope you are viewing this via Tor. Once you are done, clear your browser cache. Reading about Plausible Deniability should not be crime, but unfortunately having done so could be considered circumstantial evidence that could be used against you.
The Plausible Deniability Toolkit is not a set of tools to download, but a set of ideas and philosophies to adapt to protect your privacy in an ever-increasingly scary world of eroding personal rights. The "hacker defense" rarely works, even if it is the truth! Remember, the work you do as a researcher and hacker might be legal today, but illegal in the future. Prepare now.
DefCon 14 Presentation
Here are some related links to what was discussed during the presentation:
- Tor - An anonymous Internet communication system, and you should be using it to view this page.
- BackTrack - Decent security-related distro that should be common amongst pen testers. Contains some forensic tools as well. Possession of this software should be considered normal for any security professional, so it gives you a good reason to possess forensics tools without a direct link to possessing just forensics tools.
- The Luchko/Eister Indictment - Released earlier this year, this indictment of two system administrators is a fascinating read of what to do and especially what not to do.
- EFF - Support the EFF. They support all of us, we should support them.
