In response to the Guardian report that major Internet companies including Microsoft, Facebook, Apple, Google, YouTube, Skype, Yahoo, PalTalk, and AOL, have apparently been providing sensitive user data to the National Security Agency (NSA), FSF executive director John Sullivan made the following statement:

Massive privacy intrusions like this are to be expected when people shift from storing their media locally and using local software, to storing them on other people's servers and using hosted (Web) applications. Giants like Microsoft, Facebook and Google are vulnerable to government requests for user data, and there are better, more secure ways to share information online. Free software projects like GNU MediaGoblin, StatusNet, Diaspora, pump.io, Tahoe-LAFS, FreedomBox and SparkleShare are hard at work creating a less centralized world where users retain control over both their media and the software used to access it, while still getting the social and convenience benefits of the giant centralized -- and compromised -- services.


MediaGoblin Use this instead of using Facebook, YouTube, or Google+ to host and manage your own collections of images, videos, and other multimedia including 3D graphics viewed via the next-generation features of HTML5


StatusNet A good replacement for Twitter that supports the OAuth standard for logging into multiple sites using the same credentials, similar to Twitter


Tahoe-LAFS A great system for system administrators to store your data securely in a distributed file-system with end-to-end security. Tahoe-LAFS integrates encryption, redundancy and data-integrity which prevents the storage-provider from accessing your data.


ownCloud A Web application for storage and synchronization of files, calendars and contacts on your server.


Tor When used with encryption, this helps anonymize and secure your Internet traffic.


Piwik A suitable replacement for Google Analytics, for analyzing web user traffic on your website. Supports intergration with popular web revision systems.


Mumble A suitable replacement for TeamSpeak, Ventrillo, Skype, Google Hangout (and others). Encryption enabled by default, enables group voice chat.


Gnuzilla IceCat Suitable replacement for Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer and others. Comes with privacy features turned on, and LibreJS (and more) for disabling non-free JavaScript code, FaceBook "like" buttons and other things.


pump.io A federated microblogging platform.


Friendica A decentralised social network and Facebook alternative providing federation and connections with several other networks


Red Matrix Content management and personal cloud server with decentralised identity (e.g. network wide single sign-on and access control) and privacy enhanced distributed social networking.


TorChat TorChat is a decentralized anonymous instant messenger that uses Tor as its underlying network.


Encryption and GPG

GPG The encryption program.


Gpa The GNU Privacy Assistant is a simple and friendly graphical interface to GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG). This makes it easy to create and manage your keys and key ring!


Enigmail Want to encrypt your emails? Simply use the Enigmail extension to Icedove!


Category/Security/encryption Check out all of the encryption packages in the Directory!
