[FreedomBox]

August 12, 2011

Dear *,

Well as I missed the interesting project presentation at FOSDEM this year, I wanted to share it with those who missed as well 😉

Personally, I am convinced a lot of companies would be interested by such project.

Does anyone of you know if that project have chance to integrate the Fedora Distribution ?

Extract from the Freedombox.org website :

What is FreedomBox?

  • Email and telecommunications that protects privacy and resists eavesdropping
  • A publishing platform that resists oppression and censorship.
  • An organizing tool for democratic activists in hostile regimes.
  • An emergency communication network in times of crisis.

FreedomBox will put in people’s own hands and under their own control encrypted voice and text communication, anonymous publishing, social networking, media sharing, and (micro)blogging.

Much of the software already exists: onion routing, encryption, virtual private networks, etc. There are tiny, low-watt computers known as “plug servers” to run this software. The hard parts is integrating that technology, distributing it, and making it easy to use without expertise. The harder part is to decentralize it so users have no need to rely on and trust centralized infrastructure.

That’s what FreedomBox is: we integrate privacy protection on a cheap plug server so everybody can have privacy. Data stays in your home and can’t be mined by governments, billionaires, thugs or even gossipy neighbors.

With FreedomBoxes in their homes, anybody, regardless of technical skill, can easily enjoy secure, private, even anonymous communication!

    While FreedomBox was founded by Debian folks after Eben’s talk at DebConf, there is certainly scope for packaging the stuff in Fedora and creating Fedora-based FreedomBox images and hardware. I would encourage you to get involved
