TL;DR: Inserting a file into Freenet using the key KSK@<password> creates an invisible, password protected file which is available over Freenet.
Often you want to exchange some content only with people who know a given password and make it accessible to everyone in your little group but invisible to the outside world.
Until yesterday I thought that problem slightly complex, because everyone in your group needs a given encryption program, and you need a way to share the file without exposing the fact that you are sharing it.
Then I learned two handy facts about Freenet:
Content is invisible to all but those with the key
<ArneBab> evanbd: If I insert a tiny file without telling anyone the key, can they get the content in some way?
<evanbd> ArneBab: No.
You generate a key from a password by using a KSK-key
<toad_> dogon: KSK@<any string of text> -> generate an SSK private key from the hash of the text
<toad_> dogon: if you know the string, you can both insert and retrieve it
In other words:
Just inserting a file into Freenet using the key KSK@<password> creates an invisible, password protected file which is shared over Freenet.
The European Copyright directive threatens online communication in Europe.
But thanks to massive shared action earlier this year, the European parliament can still prevent the problems. For each of the articles there are proposals which fix them. The parliamentarians (MEPs) just have to vote for them. And since they are under massive pressure from large media companies, that went as far as defaming those who took action as fake people, the MEPs need to hear your voice to know that your are real.
If you care about the future of the Internet in the EU, please Call your MEPs.
