Anonymity and Privacy - First lesson taught on OnionIRC

Anonymity and Privacy - First lesson taught on OnionIRC

Monday 25 April 2016 > français

The official transcript of the first lesson taught on OnionIRC.

On this date, 24/04/2016, approximately 250 users came together to learn to better protect their privacy online... in an IRC. Welcome to the first of (hopefully) many lessons to come here on the OnionIRC, coming to you live from The Onion Routing network!

This lesson is an entry-level course on Anonymity and Privacy.

  • Some of you may be wondering why we are doing this. What motivates us?
  • Some users have shown concern that this network might be "ran by the feds" and other such common threads of discussion in these dark corners of the web.

Our goal is to educate. And we hope you came to learn.

No admin here will ask you something that would compromise your identity nor ask you to do anything illegal. We may, however, give you the tools and knowledge necessary to commit what some would consider a crime. Shoutout to all the prisons out there that need a good burning! What you do with the knowledge you obtain here is entirely your business.

We are personally motivated to participate in this project for various reasons.

Over the last five years we have seen the numbers of those aligning with Anonymous soaring, while the average users’ technical-knowhow has been on the decline. The average Anonymous "member" believes that DDoS and Twitter spam equates to hacking & activism, respectively. While this course is not covering these specific topics, we think this is a beginning to a better understanding of what "hacktivism" is & how to protect yourself while subverting corrupt governments.

  • Okay, enough with the backstory. we are sure you are all ready to start learning.
