Description

The status report actually says periodic white papers, but I figured that a few blog posts would be just as good. We could point to the bypassing censorship manual, the anonymous blogging guide etc.

The Sponsor E page had the following listed under Internet censorship awareness. I'm sure we can include it here somehow:

Guidance on ‘how best to address censorship’ manual:

  • How to interpret the source data collected and reported?
  • How do users use this data to change their actions?

This is just a linkfest of articles. The original point was to explain how to understand all of this data and knowledge to let people in hostile areas learn how to blog without getting arrested and tortured. Basically, the goal was to write up what we tell people in individual trainings, from explaining how the Internet works in reality, through setting up a blog with Tor, or even blogging via hidden service.

The title is more correctly called "Mitigating risks when blogging online". The series of posts could be a weekly series with themes such as:

  1. Blogging online safely
  2. Mitigating risks when sharing sensitive data online
  3. Safely circumventing internet censorship
  4. Minimizing online surveillance

These two links may cover most of the topics, https://flossmanuals.net/basic-internet-security/ and https://flossmanuals.net/bypassing-censorship/. They don't have enough data for people at serious risk, but for a novice to the concepts, they are decent overviews.

Also the Global Voice Advocacy guide was written by Sami, Ethan, and us.

I decided to go with a linkfest of articles because there's only one runa and not enough time to do ALL the things. If you, or anyone else, have time to write a long post about this before the end of the 15th, please do.

What you're describing sounds more like #4502: Compile information about censorship and security threats; the issues we and our users run into and how we deal with each one (for example a wiki, or a series of blog posts for the planet) than this ticket.

There's a lot of overlap with some of the deliverables for Sponsor E.
