+----------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ | Your privacy - VPN & Firefox (+ other Gecko browsers)* rev. 0.3.8 | +----------------------------------------------------------------------------------+ ========== VPN section ========== + You can try free OpenVPN configs or Softether: - http://www.vpngate.net/en/ - (disadvantage - logging policy: 2 weeks [default]) - https://www.vpnbook.com/ (few free OpenVPN configs only) when you decided to use: - Softether - you need good server with strong encryption (standard is really bad: RC4 MD5) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RC4#Security https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5#Security - Softether - I recommend to use DNSCrypt to avoid DNS leaks (check your DNS leaks - links are below) - OpenVPN - you can edit configs (.ovpn) with notepad to change encryption (line 88 - standard is not so good: AES-128-CBC - try AES-256-CBC instead) - OpenVPN - you can edit configs (.ovpn) with notepad to add option "block-outside-dns" (for example in line 104) to avoid DNS leaks - OpenVPN - if you add option "block-outside-dns" you don't need (Simple) DNSCrypt (my testing suggest that when you using OpenVPN without "block-outside-dns" option together with Simple DNSCrypt you are affected by DNS leaks) (Simple DNSCrypt not working for me, anyway this needs further testing...) - OpenVPN - you can edit configs (.ovpn) with notepad to add option "--remote-cert-tls server" (for example in line 21) to avoid "Man-in-the-Middle" attack https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html#secnotes [OpenVPN 2.1 and above] + OpenVPN manuals: - https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Openvpn24ManPage - https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Openvpn23ManPage - https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/howto.html - https://openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/documentation/security-overview.html + Softether: - http://www.softether.org/1-features/3._Security_and_Reliability ========== Browser section ========== + Secure your privacy in Firefox: - by using addons like in IceCat [https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/IceCat] I mean: Adblock Plus (ABP), Disable WebRTC, Fat-Free Fox, No Resource URI Leak, NoScript, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin (uBO), uMatrix etc. Additionally you can add: CanvasBlocker, Disconnect, Https Everywhere, Privacy Settings, Random Agent Spoofer. Take a look @ these sites: - https://web.archive.org/web/20170404173124/http://b.agilob.net/better-security-privacy-and-anonymity-in-firefox - http://configfox.sourceforge.net/ - https://www.bestvpn.com/make-firefox-secure-using-aboutconfig/ - https://www.bestvpn.com/privacy-news/control-firefox-privacy-settings-with-an-add-on/ - https://vikingvpn.com/cybersecurity-wiki/browser-security/guide-hardening-mozilla-firefox-for-privacy-and-security - https://www.howtogeek.com/102032/how-to-optimize-mozilla-firefox-for-maximum-privacy/ - http://www.ghacks.net/2015/07/01/control-privacy-settings-in-firefox-easily/ + If you would like to use Google Chrome anyway you can replace it with Chromium or Iron: - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chromium_(web_browser) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRWare_Iron + Use Tor or Tor Browser (based on Firefox): - "We will never be able to de-anonymize all Tor users all the time. • With manual analysis we can de-anonymize a very small fraction of Tor users" - https://edwardsnowden.com/docs/doc/tor-stinks-presentation.pdf‎ - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tor_Stinks.pdf - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tor_(anonymity_network)#Tor_Browser - https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en - https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq.html.en + Try Privoxy: - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privoxy + Change your UserAgent frequently (get UA addon for your browser).

URLs: - https://simplednscrypt.org/ - https://github.com/jedisct1/dnscrypt-proxy/wiki - https://github.com/Noxwizard/dnscrypt-winclient (Simple DNSCrypt not working for me (I'm still using "block-outside-dns" option in OpenVPN config file).
