CISPA; A Backdoor Bill For SOPA / PIPA?

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is a United States proposed law introduced on November 30, 2011 by U.S. Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 29 co-sponsors (Companies).

The bill would give the U.S. government additional options and resources to ensure the security of networks against attacks and enforce copyright and patents. The bill was reported out of committee on December 1, 2011 and has yet to be debated or brought to a vote.

This controversial bill is already widely criticised by advocates of Internet privacy and neutrality, such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Avaaz.org, because it contains few limits on how and when the U.S. Government may monitor private information, and because few safeguards are included as to how the data may be used; they claim that such new powers are likely to be used to find and punish file sharers rather than foreign spies or hackers.

AVAAZ is committed to stopping any and all censorship of the internet. In their own words, “Help Save The Internet From The U.S”. If you would like to show your support and stop the CISTA bill. you can by completing their petition HERE. Avaaz sees the bill as a threat against “Our democracy and civil liberties from the excessive and unnecessary Internet surveillance powers it grants. The Internet is a crucial tool for people around the world to exchange ideas and work collectively to build the world we all want”.

Congress is set to act on Cyber-Security legislation that has been making its way through committees in both chambers for several years. The House is set to vote on these bills during the week of April 23, dubbed “Cybersecurity Week.” The Senate will take action soon after.

A lot of important work has gone into these bills that are intended to strengthen both the government and civilian response to cyber threats. This in theory is an amicable notion. Yet parts of these bills are alarming because, if passed, any information we put online, work, play, personal and sensitive could be put at risk.

The broad language means there is no explicit restriction about the type of information being shared between government and companies, so long as it could somehow be linked to cyber-threats. That’s very worrisome on privacy grounds, since it makes it easier for companies to hand over any information the government asks for and not worry about getting sued.

Under Rogers, once your personal information is in the hands of the government it can be used for any national security purpose, including to track patterns of communications to decide whether to seek authorization to wiretap you. It can be used to prosecute you for any crime.

So why is the House leadership trumpeting the Rogers bill and why are so many companies lining up to support it?

For companies, the answer is easy: there is freedom to share information with whatever entity they please, blanket immunity for sharing, blanket immunity for a recipient of shared cyber-security information who fails to take protective measures even when they are clearly needed, and no regulatory burdens are imposed.

For House leadership, the answer seems to be that it is not listening to Internet users.

Perhaps it’s time for us to shout our objections more loudly?”

A number of companies and groups dear to our web hearts support these bills including – Microsoft, IBM, AT&T, Facebook, and Verizon – you can find a full list that support CISPA HERE. And it’s co-sponsors can be found HERE.

The bill describes cyber threat as a “vulnerability of, or threat to, a system or network of a government or private entity, including information pertaining to the protection of a system or network from either ‘efforts to degrade, disrupt, or destroy such system or network;’ or ‘theft or misappropriation of private or government information, intellectual property, or personally identifiable information.'”.

How would this play out in the real world? As Government Computer News reported, “Companies and government agencies alike are using tools to sweep the Internet–blogs, websites, and social media such as Facebook and Twitter feeds–to find out what people are saying about, well, just about anything.” Maybe even The Zuphorian.

“Not surprisingly,” GCN’s Patrick Marshall wrote, “intelligence agencies have already been looking at social media as a source of information. The Homeland Security Department has been analyzing traffic on social networks for at least the past three years.”

Due to the opposition the bill has experienced, the co-sponsors are planning to amend the bill to address many of the concerns of its opponents – including limiting its use to a more limited definition of cyber-threats, and stating that the “theft of intellectual property” refers to the theft of research and development. In addition, there will now be penalties if private companies or the government uses data from CISPA for purposes “unrelated to cyberthreats.”

Do you agree or disagree with CISPA? Do you believe the internet has too many monitoring bodies? What views on this article? all comments either for or against the points raised within this artlcle are welcome.

Description:

Custom View is a new application for organization and playback of video clips on your iPad geared for sales presentations and grouping by project or themes.

Videos are added via iTunes file sharing. Connect the iPad to your computer, then drag and drop user-created clips onto the Custom View app.

Then launch the app and create your own Groups. Think of these as folders in which to organize your presentations. They may represent specific clients, products, projects, events, etc.

Individual videos may be assigned to as many Groups as you wish. Just select from the ‘All Videos’ area and drag into the selected Group. Imported videos may then be organized into a sequence within a Group.

Each Group may be chosen to be hidden or visible upon next launch. If more than one Group is to be displayed, individual buttons for each will appear across the center tab in the Videos view.

You can also customize the splash screen image; add a small company logo that will be continuously displayed; customize a default e-mail message; and link a PDF.

So let’s say you’ll be showing Client A his footage this morning, but you don’t want him to see what you shot for others or other personal movies on your iPad. Simply assign the clips to Client A’s Group, uncheck any other Groups you may have setup within Custom View, and when you open the app in front of him it will only show Client A’s footage. You can even add his company’s logo as the splash screen, but have your company logo displayed discreetly at all times during the presentation.

June Deadline; To approve or disapprove ACTA.

” The European Parliament’s international trade committee has rejected a proposal by David Martin, an MEP who is drafting the Parliament’s position on ACTA. Martin wanted to ask the European Court of Justice for its opinion on the controversial anti-piracy treaty, but the committee decided yesterday that wasn’t needed and will now vote in June on whether to approve ACTA. Opponents of the treaty see the development as a victory.

In a February announcement, EU trade chief Karel De Gucht said that following discussion with fellow Commissioners, the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) would be referred to the European Court of Justice (ECJ).

The treaty, which is aimed at harmonizing global copyright enforcement globally, has largely been formulated behind closed doors and its critics fear it will only lead to censorship and surveillance of Internet users.

The plan was to ask the ECJ to look at ACTA and decide if it conflicts with the EU’s fundamental rights and freedoms, including freedom of expression and right to privacy.

Separately, David Martin, a UK MEP who is drafting the Parliament’s position on ACTA, made a proposal to put ACTA before the European Court of Justice to get its opinion, but the committee decided yesterday that wasn’t needed and will now vote in June on whether to approve ACTA.

The European Parliament’s trade committee rejected the plan with 21 MEPs voting against, 5 in favor and 2 abstention. This means that ACTA could now be put before Parliament in a matter of months. Had ACTA been immediately referred to Europe’s highest court, it would have meant a delay of one, maybe two years.

This, according to activists, would have dampened the momentum of their anti-ACTA work which reached unprecedented levels and Europe-wide protests earlier this year.

“Referring ACTA to the court is no substitute for the political procedure needed to check this agreement and determine democratically whether its entry into force is in the European interest,” said Pirate Party MEP and Shadow rapporteur on ACTA for the GreensAmelia Andersdotter.

“Only a democratic ratification process via the European and national parliaments is able to provide such a judgment, and we therefore welcome today’s decision to continue with this process,” she concluded.

ACTA will now be pushed through committees in the European Parliament during April and May and then to a final full Parliament vote at its June plenary session.

“If ACTA dies in European Parliament, then it’s a permakill, and the monopoly lobbies will have to start fighting uphill,” said Pirate Party founder Rick Falkvinge in a comment. “If ACTA passes, the same monopolists get tons of new powers to use, and close the door for the foreseeable future behind the legislators for a very necessary reform of the copyright and patent monopolies.”

After its existence was first discovered by the public in 2008 after documents were uploaded to Wikileaks, ACTA’s opponents now have just 10 weeks to pull out the stops.” This article is a fan duplication, you can view the entire article and it’s related comments at TorrentFreak.com or just click HERE!

JailBreak - Get me outta here!

An Introduction To Cydia Repo’s

Failte mó chara, and for those not of the Irish persuasion, it means Hello/Hi my friends. Just like the word ‘repo’ has the meaning Repository, a place where app packages of all kinds are stored, and NOT reprocessing! which is what happens to the car when we miss the monthly premium.

So, as an introduction to this new category in the Zuphorian Blog, I will list below some of my favorite repo’s for my iDevices. These can all be entered into Cydia and used to obtain those hard to find packages that really extend the basic use of your iDevice.

Now I am assuming  you HAVE Jailbroken your iPhone, iPod or iPad, and the next thing to do, will be to add a repository to Cydia other than the standard ones installed at the time of Cydia install. This is quite a simple process, but for those a little vague to it, here is a step-by-step guide to aid ye;

Step One:

  • Launch Cydia by tapping on Cydia icon from your Springboard.

cydia-01

Step Two:

  • Here’s the Welcome to Cydia screen.
  • Tap the Manage Tab available at the bottom of the screen.
  • On the next screen, Tap on Sources section to get the list of Cydia sources.

cydia-02 cydia-03

Step Three:

  • Here you will see the list of Cydia sources as previously “Entered by User” and “Installed by Packages”.
  • Tap on Edit button on the top right.
  • After that you will see the Add button appear at the top Left of the screen.

cydia-04 cydia-05

Step Four:

  • By Tapping the Add Button as shown above, “Enter Cydia/APT URL” popup will appear – as image below.
  • Here you can add your desired Cydia Source/repo.
  • After entering the Cydia Source press Add Source button.
  • It will sometimes start verifying the Source URL. – [It also gives a warning about adding Sources, click Add Anyway.]

cydia-06

Step Five:

  • Wait until Cydia downloads and updates the sources list.
  • When done! Press the Return to Cydia button.

cydia-07 cydia-8

And Finally:

  • You can now see, there’s a new Source/Repo added to Cydia Sources.
  • By Tapping the newly added Source you will find a list of packages available in that source.

cydia-09

The source/repo we used in the above example is called ‘myRepoSpace‘. myRepoSpace is the premier free Cydia Hosting Website. Simply Upload your .deb iOS packages to send it straight to your very own Cydia Repository. You need to enter into Cydia the following;

http://cydia.myrepospace.com/iPhoneTechie/

You can also visit their forum @ http://www.myrepospace.com/.

At the beginning of this post I promised to share with you, some of my favorite repo’s/sources, so here is a small list to get you started; Hope you find them as resourceful as I have!
