Mutt, Gmail and GPG

GPG / Mutt / Gmail


This is a collection of snippets, not a comprehensive guide. I suggest you start with Operational PGP.

Here is an incomplete list of things that are different from other approaches:

  • I don't use keyservers. Ever.
  • Yes, I use Gmail instead of some bespoke hipster freedom service

Most VPN Services are Terrible

Most VPN Services are Terrible

Short version: I strongly do not recommend using any of these providers. You are, of course, free to use whatever you like. My TL;DR advice: Roll your own and use Algo or Streisand. For messaging & voice, use Signal. For increased anonymity, use Tor for desktop (though recognize that doing so may actually put you at greater risk), and Onion Browser for mobile.

This mini-rant came on the heels of an interesting twitter discussion:

I wasn't first to get the key. Nor was I second, third, or even fourth. I'm probably not even the
10th to get it (ok, looks like I was the 8th.) But I'm happy that I was able to prove to myself
that I too could do it.
First, I have to admit I was a skeptic. Like the handful of other dissenters, I had initially
believed that it would be highly improbable under normal conditions to obtain the private key
through exploiting Heartbleed. So this was my motivation for participating in Cloudflare's
challenge. I had extracted a lot of other things with Heartbleed, but I hadn't actually set out to
extract private keys. So I wanted to see first-hand if it was possible or not.
