Yesterday's Google I/O 2016 keynote presentation was pretty interesting. Of the products and services introduced, I'm most looking forward to Google Allo (which will support end-to-end encrypted chats using "incognito" mode) and Google Duo, which uses WebRTC for end-to-end encrypted videocalling.

Security researcher Jonathan Zdziarski has documented that Apple has deliberately backdoored every single iOS device, allowing encryption to be bypassed and sensitive personal or business data to be accessed. Here's a link to the PDF of a slide presentation that he gave at the ongoing Hackers on Planet Earth conference in New York. The slide photo I've attached gives an overview of the seriousness of the problem: http://www.zdziarski.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/iOS_Backdoors_Attack_Points_Surveillance_Mechanisms.pdf

Excellent app for securing voice calls. And because it uses Wi-Fi or your telco's data plan, calls don't count against your minutes. In fact, you can make international calls to other RedPhone users for free.

I'm trying out a free, open-source secure messaging app called Surespot. It's available for iOS and Android. If you'd care to try it, too, my Surespot user ID is georgemaschke. Feel free to add me as a contact.

I went for a walk in the park this morning and took some pictures with my Android tablet using the stock Google photo app.

I just bought a ticket to hear journalist Glenn Greenwald speak in Amsterdam about his new book, No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State. The event, which is hosted by the John Adams Institute, is scheduled for Tuesday, 20 May at 8PM.
