Spy-funded privacy tools (like Signal and Tor) are not going to protect us from President Trump | Surveillance Valley — Yasha Levine
Here’s the problem: Signal was created by the same spooky regime change outfits that fund the Tor Project. The money primarily comes through the federal government’s premier Internet Freedom venture capital outfit: Open Technology Fund, which works closely with the State Department’s regime change arm and is funded through several layers of Cold War CIA cutouts — including Radio Free Asia and the Broadcasting Board of Governors.

I'm giving up on PGP
Mostly I'll use Signal or WhatsApp, which offer vastly better endpoint security on iOS, ephemerality, and smoother key rotation.

If you need to securely contact me, your best bet is to DM me asking for my Signal number. If needed we can decide an appropriate way to compare fingerprints.

If we meet in person and need to setup a secure channel, we will just exchange a secret passphrase to use with what's most appropriate: OTR, Pond, Ricochet.

If it turns out we really need PGP, we will setup some ad-hoc keys, more à-la-Operational PGP. Same for any signed releases or canaries I might maintain in the future.

To exchange files, we will negotiate Magic Wormhole, OnionShare, or ad-hoc PGP keys over the secure channel we already have. The point is not to avoid the gpg tool, but the PGP key management model.

If you really need to cold-contact me, I might maintain a Keybase key, but no promises. I like rooting trust in your social profiles better since it makes key rotation much more natural, and is probably how most people know me anyway.

I'm also not dropping YubiKeys. I'm very happy about my new YubiKey 4 with touch-to-operate, which I use for SSH keys, password storage and machine bootstrap. But these things are 100% under my control.
