How to foil NSA sabotage: use a dead man's switch (podcast)


1 Like

Cory, I was wondering if this couldn’t be strengthened by adding religious freedom into the mix: suppose instead of a published “not-compromised” message, it took the form of a vocal prayer to your deity thanking them for the continued intact state of your site. Seems to me that, at least in the USA, it’d be especially tricky to try to prevent someone from praying, or worse, to make them lie in their prayer…

Who is taking forward the implementation of the Dead Man’s switch?

PS. The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act in the UK does not allow the government to request keys that are used for signing only - the law specifically has an exception for keys that are marked “sign only” and are actually used that way; they can only ask you for encryption keys. Check out section 9 of the act.
