vpndark.net back open for business

Image

I've been on a break from token sales as I've been AFK over the summer and it wouldn't have been fair to take payments and not be able to supply tokens in the ASAP fashion I personally commit to.

Yesterday I took a new tranche of tokens from CS (thanks Fermi!), and am now ready to help out whoever needs them.

I'd like to confirm that I'm totally independent, and in no way associated with CS; so purchasing tokens from me in no way links you to CS.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me:
* the contact page encrypts via PGP any communication to my inbox
* my pgp key and email address are available
* via BitMessage address (drop me an anonymous message to prompt me to check BitMessage)
* Wickr - vpndarknet
* I accept Bitcoins and PayPal, I'm open to other payment methods that work for me and you

Happy secret surfing people 8-)

Hi guys,
I don't post here often, but I have been in touch with many Cryptostorm users over the last 18 months, acting as an anonymous bridge between you guys and CS.

A reseller is only as good, as the customers are happy; so I'd like to ask anyone who has bought tokens from me to leave me feedback here, and vouch that you can trust me :thumbup:

I'd also like to use this post to mention that if you don't see any communication back from me, please check your spam inbox. I find it quite sad when people continually email me, I reply with solutions, and they feel they're being ignored :(

If there's anything I can do to help, you wanna pay for a token, or have it delivered in a different way, please let me know.

Warm regards, and happy secret surfing

New Evidence of the NSA Deliberately Weakening Encryption

One of the most high-profile ways in which mathematicians are implicated in mass surveillance is in the intelligence agencies’ deliberate weakening of commercially available encryption systems — the same systems that we rely on to protect ourselves from fraud, and, if we wish, to ensure our basic human privacy.

We already knew quite a lot about what they’ve been doing. The NSA’s 2013 budget request asked for funding to “insert vulnerabilities into commercial encryption systems”. Many people now know the story of the Dual Elliptic Curve pseudorandom number generator, used for online encryption, which the NSA aggressively and successfully pushed to become the industry standard, and which has weaknesses that are widely agreed by experts to be a back door. Reuters reported last year that the NSA arranged a secret $10 million contract with the influential American security company RSA (yes, that RSA), who became the most important distributor of that compromised algorithm.

A private conversation, in public.

I was throwing this idea around recently on IRC, how about encrypted public chat.

Concept; a PGP key is created for a forum, or section of it, and the private key is shared with all known people.
Everyone could then post encrypted with the public key, and all trusted users would be able to decrypt the conversation.

The key could be uploaded to a repository, eg MEGA, and shared to trusted individuals via a link, and could be burned after each conversation.

Any thoughts?

66 day tokens $9.99 - support the PayPal 14

As the title says, bargin price 66 day tokens, all of the money goes direct to the PayPal 14 campaign.

The collective puishment of the protesters is simply wrong.
If you buy monthly tokens, buy one or 2 of these, get a good deal, and support the people who were representing wikileaks.

Link to buy here, and fuck PayPal consider BitCoins
In early December 2010, 1000s of people participated when Anonymous launched a distributed denial of service (DDoS) against PayPal. This was to protest PayPal cutting off service to WikiLeaks in an attempt to shut down their publishing. In January 2011, the US Department of Justice issued 40 subpoenas in search of information. In July, fourteen of the thousands who participated had their homes raided and were charged under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. They were made to serve as an example to us all, at great personal cost. For three years they have been carrying the stress of their charges and the weight of the threatened 15 years in prison and $500,000 fines each, by themselves.

In Citizens United, the US Supreme Court ruled that independent political expenditures by corporations and unions are protected under the First Amendment. When PayPal removed the same right of individuals to spend their money in support of their beliefs, these protesters defended us all. These fourteen and the thousands that participated stood up for free speech and the right to protest for us all.

These protesters were not spreading malware, hacking servers or damaging the website. They were expressing an opinion just as any protester in a park, signer of a petition, or congressional switchboard caller. These people were making a statement and publicly exposing PayPal in front of their shareholders and the world on behalf of those of us who value freedom of information.

On December 4, 2013, 11 defendants in what is known as the "PayPal 14" case pleaded guilty to both felony and misdemeanor charges during their appearances in federal court. If they have no more legal trouble until December 4th, 2014, federal prosecutors will seek to drop the felony charges and the defendants will be sentenced to probation and possibly receive credit for time served. They also agreed to pay $86,000 collectively (approximately $5,600 each) in ransom to PayPal. Two other defendants pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge, and likely will be sentenced to 90 days in prison. A final defendant was not eligible for a plea deal.

We do not believe it is appropriate for 14 people to take the fall for something thousands did and many more worldwide have voiced support for. We believe this ransom is being inflicted on our community as a whole to discourage us individually from standing for what we believe in. If we are to have the freedom to stand for our beliefs we must bear the consequences together and together remember who inflicted the ransom on us. Corporate interests have aligned in solidarity against us. We need to align in solidarity with our beliefs as well.

We believe in freedom of speech. We support the weak against the powerful. We share this sentence with the PayPal 14.

Considering Mega's encryption of the files, then when token purchased I could send on link... I could even encrypt the file and send on a password.

More than happy to use PGP for any/all communication (I've even had ideas of encrypting chat spaces like this), but I'm just blue sky thinking, considering an alt to sending tokens as plain text.

Understand that tokens are just the key to validate access to the network, and are not traceable to an individual, but I'm also thinking of customer peace of mind.

G'day Cryptostormers :wave:
I'm considering a different method of distributing tokens purchased from me.
Many people receive token via email, after purching with PayPal.

What do you think of the idea of receiving a link to an encryped file saved on Mega, rather than the token in a plain unencrypted email?

I understand there is no danger of leaking information if someone else had your token, but do you think this would be useful, anyone interested?

New BitMessage version coming, upgrade essential

Bitmessage v0.4.4 will be available next week. It will be a required release; you must upgrade sometime before 16 Nov 2014. After that date all nodes will switch to simplified message formats which are not compatible with older clients.

This release will contain a major protocol upgrade which accomplishes several goals:
- Support user-specifiable message expiration time rather than the current two-day setting. Users will be able to specify the length of time a message should be held by the network from several minutes to 28 days. Messages with a longer time-to-live will require more work to send while messages with a shorter time-to-live will be easier to send.
- Simplification of the various object types and signing schemes which will make implementing alternative clients easier.
- Cap the maximum message size at 256 KiB.

There isn't yet any user-interface to specify the time-to-live of a message; this will be added after the upgrade period.
This release does contain a new feature which can be used immediately: the ability to limit the network transfer rate.
Because message acknowledgments will be broken until both the sender and receiver of a message upgrade, we are letting you know about this release ahead of time so that the upgrade may be more swift. Interested individuals may review the source code here: https://github.com/Bitmessage/PyBitmess ... ts/ProtoV3

Thank You,

I can create you links to my PayPa / BitPay account, at an agreed amount, for you to share.
Any payments that come thorough are passed onto you, minus a small commission.

I would then either send you or the buyer the token, whatever the preference.

This way you get to take advantage of the bulk prices, and get instant no risk access to tokens.

Re: Montreal cluster - background & discussion

Something I've noticed on Maple, think since after the weekend, is that torrents are not working, although everything else seems as good as ever.

Confirmed I'm uising the *.conf file you linkd to /Fermi, but the port Transmission is using isn't open.

The Frakfurt exit node behaves as expected, has anything changed, is this related to the downtime?

Re: RE-OPENED: aleph tokens ~ unlimited duration batch

Thanks for the info man, although like sarcasm and irony, it's difficult to express that I was been facetious in text :)

Hope you can find someone who fits the culture, to help market and spread the word of Cryptostorm to the unwashed masses.

Looking forward to the new exit node, any clues on the planned location?

Re: version control: non-widget Windows conf's, most current

I find this board, and the spread of information a bit intiidating; certainly for someone new to cryptostorm, and vpn technology.
I'm pretty much a n00b, although tech savy, and it has been a challenge (although fun) to get everything working slick.

I really appreciate the supportof the community, but it would be easier if everything was in one place.
This reasoning drove me to setup a cyptostorm wiki, a page of links to all of you guys sage advice.

I'm not sure if I'm keeping up with what's happening, due to time zones the chat room is often empty whn I role in :)
So if anyone else would like a login, to add new links, or correct anything I might not have worded quite right, please conatct me.

Re: RE-OPENED: aleph tokens ~ unlimited duration batch

Fantastic guys, great to hear more server locations are on the cards, but how am I meant to sell tokens if you're signing members up for life? ;)

Love the symbolisim of the price point!

One question: If a user has constant login credentials, does this mitigate personal security in anyway?

Best of luch with the expansion and future endeavers!

Re: Icelandic Exit Node Dodgy Geolocation Phenomenon

Curious, I've just checked my connection on the Iceland Fenrir node, from outside of Germany, on Android.

The IP is returned as Iceland, but the DNS Germany.

Is this setting intentional?

Re: New auth error discovered

Cheers man, I'm using a basterdised version of Ubunti 14.04, and trying to implement Desu's IPtable:
viewtopic.php?t=6247&p=9588#p9588

All works well, except it seems to be locking down my access... and as mentioned in the post, IP tables have always been a dark art to me, although I understand the context, I've never had a setup I'm totes happy with

I've messed with this setup heaps, so who knows what tweak could be effecting the resolv.conf setup???
The change via Network Manager looks to be working great though!

I'd tried creating a password.txt file with no luck, but I've just dropped it in the /etc/openvpn folder and it now works :D

Just IP Tables to sort out now :?

Re: LEAKBLOCK HOWTO (Android and Ubuntu)

Desu, not sure if I'm following this correctly, but the file name leakblock-vpn is then referred to in your guide as iptables-vpn?

I'm running with leakblock-vpn set throughout, the tables are updated... but I can't seem to access the internet.

Only tested with Brunon though 46.165.222.248, which is included on the IP Table, and the DNS's I have set, that you provided earlier seem to be allowed too?

Any help appreciated

Re: New auth error discovered

Great stuff thanks, making the changes of the network manager looks to have worked :)
I was reluctant to change resolv.conf as it reads:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN

Think I'd read about changing the base files in the past though?

Do I need to hardcode login/pass into the conf files, for them to auto re-connect?

Thanks again for your help!

Re: vpnDarknet - tor hidden service

Chur dude ,
It looks like the issue was not having <meta charset="utf-8"> set was causing the fonts to weird out when deviating from numbers and basic alphabet, all good now :D
A dual purpose of this Pi is as a wifi router, with all of the traffic piped through tor, I would like to set it up to send it all through CS, but not sure if I can achieve all with one bit of kit.

I did have another Pi... in fact I still do.

But I plug some cables incorrectly onto the board, and all of the magic smoke escaped, so now it's just a piece of objet d'art :roll:

vpnDarknet - tor hidden service

G'day guys,
As another step towards anonymity I've setup a locally hosted hidden service, a web site only accessible via the tor network.

This has been a learning exercise for me, my first project playing with a Raspberry Pi.

It's a simple landing page, for now, with information of how to contact me securely to purchase access tokens.

If cool, I'd like you guys to test drive it, and feedback any sugestions... as I'm sat next to the box I think my access speeds may be a little biased.
