FSF: GNU hackers discover HACIENDA government surveillance and give us a way to fight back

Linux Weekly News - p, 2014-08-22 00:40

The Free Software Foundation blog has posted an article detailing a newly discovered government surveillance project as well as a new technological countermeasure. The surveillance project is known as HACIENDA, as is reportedly a multi-national effort "to map every server in twenty-seven countries, employing a technique known as port scanning." The countermeasure, developed by Julian Kirsch, Christian Grothoff, Jacob Appelbaum, and Holger Kenn, is called TCP Stealth. According to the TCP Stealth whitepaper, the system "replaces the traditional random TCP SQN number with a token that authenticates the client and (optionally) the first bytes of the TCP payload. Clients and servers can enable TCP Stealth by explicitly setting a socket option or linking against a library that wraps existing network system calls." A Linux implementation of the scheme is available.
