Pseudonymous Identities with TAILS is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sun, Nov 4. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
In this talk we’ll cover an introduction to using TAILS, an operating system that will let you keep a secret online identity in a USB drive. Aside from its worst-case-scenario-protection security design, TAILS routes all internet traffic through TOR, a global anonymity network, which allows anyone to use the internet without correlating what you do on the internet to your daytime identity. We’ll be setting up TAILS USB drives, encrypted/persistent storage, and running through the steps needed to set up a subpoena-ready “rogue” Twitter account as well as some of the general operational security practices around that.
