Så gick #MeraKrypto

Som vi tidigare nämnt har DFRI i veckan varit med och arrangerat det första #MeraKrypto – en konferens för att öka användningen av krypto. Till skillnad från de kryptopartyn som vi nyligen sam-arrangerat riktar sig #MeraKrypto dock främst till organisationer och företag, med föreläsningar om företagsbrandväggar, servermjukvara och säkerhetsluckor. Det var bra uppslutning – över 100 anmälda – och det finns redan planer på uppföljning.

Vill du vara med på nästa möte, gå med i #MeraKrypto-gruppen på Meetup.com och håll gärna koll på både vår och ISOC-SE:s bloggar.

Let February 11 2014 be The Day We Fight Back

Quoted from thedaywefightback.org:

Dear users of the internet,

In January 2012 we defeated the SOPA and PIPA censorship legislation with the largest Internet protest in history. Today we face another critical threat, one that again undermines the Internet and the notion that any of us live in a genuinely free society: mass surveillance.

In celebration of the win against SOPA and PIPA two years ago, and in memory of one of its leaders, Aaron Swartz, we are planning a day of protest against mass surveillance, to take place this February 11th.

Together we will push back against powers that seek to observe, collect, and analyze our every digital action. Together, we will make it clear that such behavior is not compatible with democratic governance. Together, if we persist, we will win this fight.


Regarding proposition 2013/14:KU6 Confidentiality in international cooperation

This is a partial translation from the Swedish version of this blog post.

Member of the Swedish Parliament, vote against 2013/14:KU6 Confidentiality in international cooperation (Sekretess i det internationella samarbetet)

Today, DFRI sent an email to each of the members of the Swedish Parliament regarding preventing proposition 2013/14:KU6. Follow the correspondence on our wiki page for 2013/14:KU6 Confidentiality in international cooperation.

Why are we doing this?

DFRI is striving for transparency in the processes affecting citizens’ digital freedom and rights. We believe proposition 2013/14:KU6 increases secretiveness and reduces the confidence in the democratic processes.
