nonspyware protocols? Anonymous 07/16/21(Fri)10:50:27 No. fg-M7EG3PY2 [Report]

the web and email are spyware by default, http has mandatory useragent and smtp has a shitton of unencryptable metadata are there any decent alternative protocols to them? >gopher it is nice, but i want something more rich, able to be filled with colored text and animated gifs >gemini seems okay, but obligatory tls is pure retardation, what if i intend to run it as an onion service? >serving postscript files over ftp is this a thing? sounds alright in my head, if a bit autistic idk of any alternatives to email, what i have in mind is something that allows you receive long messages and download them to your machine to store them long term (file transfer support not necessary) maybe an ftp server that only lets people upload .txt files? (when i say ftp i don't mean vanilla ftp, it can be sftp/ftps too)

>>fg-M7EG3PY2 (OP) you could probably implement something using 9P and send the text files as encrypted messages. it'd probably be cool if someone came up with something like email but using 9P and Activitypub. but yea i mean i don't think there's any real alternative to email or https other than what you're suggesting. maybe xmpp, even if xml sucks it could be more secure than email with omemo

> http has mandatory useragent No it doesn't. You can go without. Some sites don't like that.

https://httpwg.org/specs/rfc7231.html (Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Semantics and Content) > A user agent SHOULD send a User-Agent field in each request unless specifically configured not to do so. Pretty sure the referer header isn't required either. HTTP/2 RFC for reference: https://httpwg.org/specs/rfc7540.html

>>fg-KFE9GBV8 maybe not literally mandatory, but since everyone else sends it you'd better send as well or be easily recognizable the problem is not even it being mandatory, but that the protocol has espionage designed into it, optional or not

Anonymous 07/29/21(Thu)04:02:47 No. fg-BATGNQZL [Report]

>>fg-VRB76MRF The Referer header is not mandatory either? Most servers won't do anything if you don't send it.

>>fg-5ZMNAL2W TLS certificates requires the signature of the TLS mafia or most browsers will complain the certificate is invalid (the connection is still encrypted, if you choose to ignore this). But the problem is that .onion is not a "real" TLD, so there are no authorities capable of giving you a proper certificate (I think I have heard of one that does, but haven't bothered to look into it, see next point). And there is the fact that onion routing gives you automatic encryption, because when connecting to an onion service your connection is entirely within the tor network, so that's literal end-to-end encryption, making TLS redundant. >Forgive my ignorance That's alright, fedifellow.

>>fg-0N55W6W7 see >>fg-BT1JD3FY a server that wants to keep track of users would find a visitor that sends an empty useragent string to be quite out of the ordinary the mere presence of useragent and referer fields in the protocol facilitates surveillance, http was a mistake

>>fg-M7EG3PY2 (OP) >serving postscript files over ftp Is there any way to make PostScript documents interactive? More specifically, can you make a clickable link in PostScript?

>>fg-KSOYEMOZ >is it though? the entire thing is made out of based. simple window system, networks are files, all processes use a simple, portable protocol. you can make a telnet client in 10 lines of shellscript. setting up networks and servers is piss easy and they're even easier to maintain. obviously its crawling though since its only like 10 actively people working on it at maximum for free, but its really nice and most things will work

what do the fedichads think of bitmessage?

>>fg-ESE1FXQ7 I looked into it a bit. It seems like I2P-Bote is better. Haven't used either though.
