A Hacker Artist Sent the NSA an Encrypted, Theoretically Uncrackable Mixtape

In late May, hacker artist David Huerta, co-organizer of Art Hack Day and Cryptoparty, sent the NSA one hell of a snail mail. Huerta built a DIY encrypted mixtape using an Arduino board and a transparent acrylic case, containing a “soundtrack for the modern surveillance state.” It’s a mixtape the NSA won’t be able to listen to because of the power of private key-based cryptography. Originally, Huerta wanted to make a traditional mixtape and share it with friends and co-workers. But, without a cassette recorder, he didn’t get very far. That’s when his DIY hacker artist instincts kicked in, and he started building the encrypted mixtape at NYC Resistor. “I made my own version of a mixtape with an Arduino and wave shield …

Hackers can break Tor Network Anonimity with USD 3000

Security experts Alexander Volynkin and Michael McCord will present at the next Black Hat 2014 a method to break Tor network anonymity with just USD 3000. Is the popular Tor network broken? In the recent months, after the Showden’s revelations, many security experts have started to investigate on the possibility that the US intelligence, and not only, has found a way to compromise the Tor network. Last week I published a blog post that commented a report issued by the German broadcaster ARD in which is confirmed that the NSA XKeyscore was used to target two Germany-based Tor Directory Authority servers. In the recent months it was also discussed about the possibility to track selected users on Tor networks with a technique known as Traffic Correlation…

The Ultra-Simple App That Lets Anyone Encrypt Anything

Original illustration: Getty Encryption is hard. When NSA leaker Edward Snowden wanted to communicate with journalist Glenn Greenwald via encrypted email, Greenwald couldn’t figure out the venerable crypto program PGP even after Snowden made a 12-minute tutorial video. Nadim Kobeissi wants to bulldoze that steep learning curve. At the HOPE hacker conference in New York later this month he’ll release a beta version of an all-purpose file encryption program called miniLock, a free and open-source browser plugin designed to let even Luddites encrypt and decrypt files with practically uncrackable cryptographic protection in seconds. “The tagline is that this is file encryption that does more with less,” says Kobeissi, a 23-year old coder, activist and security consultant. “It’s super simple…

How an Attacker Could Crack Your Wireless Network Security

It’s important to secure your wireless network with WPA2 encryption and a strong passphrase. But what sorts of attacks are you actually securing it against? Here’s how attackers crack encrypted wireless networks. This isn’t a “how to crack a wireless network” guide. We’re not here to walk you through the process of compromising a network — we want you to understand how someone might compromise your network. Spying on an Unencrypted Network First, let’s start with the least secure network possible: An open network with no encryption. Anyone can obviously connect to the network and use your Internet connection without providing a passphrase. This could put you in legal danger if they do something illegal and it’s traced back to…
