@ Tails HackFest, Paris, July 6, 2014
-> facing the various end-user problems
with encryption & anonymization tools.
Everyone has a right to privacy,
even computer dummies.
Best advertising campaign ever imagined ;)
All-in-one solution enhancing privacy ...
... pre-configured & (relatively) easy to use ...
... providing security in an insecure environment.
(Quite) easy to install & to use
+ discreet & stealthy
+ no space for technical mistakes
(unless you really want to make some)
+ adjustable to a various range of needs.
1/ The 'Tails paradox': designed to be easy to use,
dealing with the complexity of crypto tools.
2/ When facing a problem (UEFI, access to BIOS,
captive portal, etc.), most users need human help.
3/ The two-step process for using persistence:
*really* hard to understand for a non-techie.
(Not to mention checking the integrity
of the ISO image or checking the signature.)
Not a problem with Tails,
but a global problem with crypto. Anyway:
1/ Encryption involves both sender & receiver.
(Thank you, Captain Obvious.)
2/ How can Tails be part of an ecosystem ?
(The problem for journos, for instance.)
1/ Is it possible to separate the Tails Installer from Tails OS?
2/ Is it possible to establish a network
of trustable third-parties for users in need of Tails?
3/ What if a third-party sells Tails USB sticks online?
1/ Is it possible to improve Tails' usability ?
(The answer seems to be 'yes' \o/)
2/ Is it possible to have different paths
for different kinds of users ?
(The answer also seems to be 'yes' \o/)
3/ Is it possible to have graphical tutorials
inside Tails OS?
1/ Is it possible to have different paths & levels
for different kinds of users ? (In progress \o/)
2/ Is it possible to have a short, printable,
graphical document for new users?
3/ Is it possible to document *all* the tools
integrated into the OS in Tails' doc?
