9780124104044: Practical Anonymity: Hiding in Plain Sight Online

For those with legitimate reason to use the Internet anonymously-diplomats, military and other government agencies, journalists, political activists, IT professionals, law enforcement personnel, political refugees and others-anonymous networking provides an invaluable tool, and many good reasons that anonymity can serve a very important purpose. Anonymous use of the Internet is made difficult by the many websites that know everything about us, by the cookies and ad networks, IP-logging ISPs, even nosy officials may get involved. It is no longer possible to turn off browser cookies to be left alone in your online life. Practical Anonymity: Hiding in Plain Sight Online shows you how to use the most effective and widely-used anonymity tools-the ones that protect diplomats, military and other government agencies to become invisible online. This practical guide skips the theoretical and technical details and focuses on getting from zero to anonymous as fast as possible. For many, using any of the open-source, peer-reviewed tools for connecting to the Internet via an anonymous network may be (or seem to be) too difficult because most of the information about these tools is burdened with discussions of how they work and how to maximize security. Even tech-savvy users may find the burden too great-but actually using the tools can be pretty simple. The primary market for this book consists of IT professionals who need/want tools for anonymity to test/work around corporate firewalls and router filtering as well as provide anonymity tools to their customers. Simple, step-by-step instructions for configuring and using anonymous networking software Simple, step-by-step instructions for configuring and using anonymous networking software Use of open source, time-proven and peer-reviewed tools for anonymity Plain-language discussion of actual threats and concrete suggestions for appropriate

Review:

"Diplomat or investigator, whistleblower or a political refugee fearing for your life; some have cause to use the internet anonymously. Yet privacy is dead - and that's on the authority of Google, as Peter Loshin reminds us at the beginning of his book Practical Anonymity."--Professional Security, November 2013 "Loshin, a cybersecurity expert, introduces the Tor Project and Tor Browser Bundle, an open-source solution for those with a legitimate reason to maintain anonymity or circumvent censorship on the Internet. He includes diagrams showing how the Tor network works, tips for e-mailing anonymously, and resources."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013 ".the book is easy to read and reasonably well organized. The coverage of Tor is very complete and far easier to read than the Tor documentation. If you are moderately technical and are looking for a book on the capabilities of Tor, then this is a good book to start with."--Escaped.from a Twisted Mind blog, September 30, 2013 ".[in Practical Anonymity] Loshin does a decent job of presenting the topic, including why Tor is important, and who it could most benefit. the book [Simple Steps to Data Encryption] starts with an overview of how to use GnuPG (Gnu Privacy Guard)."--Slashdot.org, September 30, 2013
