Defeating Censorship Routers
« on: August 08, 2008, 07:12:21 am »
One can start a incremental method of defeating censorship by getting volunteers to download and install the free software from www.pdf995.com, and then print the daily headlines into a portable PDF file.   Once all the days headlines are printed to PDF, they are zipped into a single ZIP file, and uploaded all over the web in different locations - such as any free file hosting website...  An example is www.mediafire.com

Then a group is started at http://groups.yahoo.com/ and several other websites, and this information is distributed to anyone in the UK or other country who cannot access the website - so one can get the links and access information to Prisonplanet.com from eventually dozens of different websites, making it resource intensive to attempt to censor the information.

An additional layer is to directly upload the PDF's to sites such as www.scribd.com

A third option is to get people to download and install software like httrack which can make a mirror image of an entire website.  Then to upload the image to the file sharing networks...

I agree with making PDFs of important documents or mirrors of important sites. For mirroring, I use wget which is available for Windows or Linux/BSD.

However, as of right now, there are better methods of getting around censorship routers. What will pose a problem is if they basically "Websense-ify" the major ISP's. That would require some modifications of apps like Tor, but it can be done. Frankly, I'm scared of what is happening, but I don't think they can succeed short of worldwide martial law.

I read a report about the recent Bilderberger meeting and I'm encouraged that the NWO is on the run. I found it very interesting that the NWO is so worried about Ron Paul. The best thing we can do is support nationalism instead of globalism.

   Here are some strategies I have been working on recently if the internet was going to be shut down tomorrow:

#1  Wireless "neighborhood" networks - Use wireless mesh routers to set up a neighborhood network.  External antennas are a must
for greatest range.  These could redirect to a locally operated BBS site or server which gets its information via sneakerware (hand carrying of discs or media) carrying content for distribution from network to network.   Truckdrivers, travelers and delivery people would be in a prime position to help share sneakerware information such as liberty oriented news, show MP3s, and educational information. I am currently experimenting with off the shelf Linksys WRT54G routers (easy to get but require expertise to flash firmware) and DD-WRT to set up a WDS system for local testing in my town.   802.11 comms can be radiolocated, but the huge number of access points makes shutting them down all but impossible. BTW, the WRT54G runs off of 12VDC, allowing modification to alternative power sources such a solar or even vehicles parked at a high vantage point.

#2  Use of alternative methods of transmission - Amateur radios could be modified (freebanded) to use additional frequencies to set up bootleg packet networks on VHF and HF.  Data throughput is VERY SLOW, but could be used for dissemination of news.  These could be radiolocated, however.  Moving mobile transmitters could transmit news to a large number of passive stations, making directionfinding difficult.

#3  Right now we can encrypt information and the watchers cant see the contents between peers.  As long as we have the ability to transceive encrypted comms via the internet we should be able to communicate.   When they first start to disrupt encrypted comms is the time to implement solutions 1 and 2, WHILE WE COORDINATE EFFORTS TO REDRESS GRIEVANCES.  When information is restricted that is when we must defend our nation with all means necessary.

   Full internet censorship will likely occur prior to massive and unprecedented human rights violations.   At that point, our lives will hinge on our decision to respond or act like sheep, so we need to use such systems only for coordination and recovery of the republic.

   Here are some strategies I have been working on recently if the internet was going to be shut down tomorrow:

Internet censorship is an impossibility in the current IPV4 world, as we know it, anyhow so I wouldn't be counting on it coming your way tomorrow!  Reason??  follow this:

When you connect to your local Internet Provider it provides your computer with access to a DNS (Domain name server) which is what your TCP/IP stack uses as a "phone book" to look up the actual numeric address of the machine that you wish to connect to the /public folders (Internet server) on!

The way this happens is rather complex bit of accumulated aggregation of other phone books of information stored on and retrieved daily or more often from master HOST DNS servers in your region and their zones of authorities (as in what servers the whois records indicate house the remote DNS numbers for a given name that is being looked up)  thus when we whois prisonplanet.com we get:

Domain registration and hosting powered by DomainDiscover
As low as $9/year, including FREE: responsive toll-free support,
URL/frame/email forwarding, easy management system, and full featured DNS.

thus  the NS1 to NS4 servers above have a record of the IP ADDRESS number that is (usually) interchangeable with the DOMAIN NAME  you might type to reach that server!

Thus AS LONG AS the site you wish to visit is in fact a primary and sole major website on it's own unshared server (not a $10 dollar a month "virtual hosting" add-on domain hosting account hidden under someone elses domain name) it will have it's own unique IP Address exactly like your machine does!

To contact these DNS servers or obtain the information in them we use the terminal in UX based systems (mac, unix, linux etc) as below:

$ dig prisonplanet.com
Quote
<<>> DiG 9.4.2-P1 <<>> prisonplanet.com
;; global options:  printcmd
;; Got answer:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 33178
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

;; QUESTION SECTION:

;; ANSWER SECTION:
prisonplanet.com.   900   IN   A   216.240.145.12

;; SERVER: 10.0.1.1#53(10.0.1.1)
;; WHEN: Mon Sep  1 00:39:57 2008
;; MSG SIZE  rcvd: 50

or the much simpler - in terminal as well - which spits out:

$ net lookup prisonplanet.com
Quote
216.240.145.12

also in Windows you can use the DNS command in the free Sam Spade program or the built-in MSDOS commands (command line or run box) in WinXP to look up the IP Address and with it we can type into our web browser:

http://216.240.145.12

NOW assuming the site is a major one and assuming you have a record of the IP address of the server any stupid.asshole.net Internet Provider who wants to 'censor the internet' will merely block lookups or DNS records or 'refresh'(redirect) DNS searches for his pet hated DOMAIN NAMES so that they redirect your lookups to the IP address of some "you are not allowed to find this domain name" (or MSNBC) page!!

Unfortunately such nonsense cannot prevent an informed visitor from connecting to the IP address of his favorite website nor can it prevent him from tunneling into it from any other undetected or unblocked ubiquitous "web proxy  trans-server" type (anonymizer) machine anywhere else on the internet that is outside of stupid.asshole.net's network and thus CAN still normally and properly lookup prisonplanet.com

So take a few minutes and record the IP Addresses of sites who's news and views you treasure just in case...


But beware, the purpose of the worldwide Web DNS "phone books of phone books" is so that if someone like Alex here decides to (or has to) get a "new number" people all over the world will automagically be able to find and dial into it )as prisonplanet.com in but a few hours of "DNS record propagation time"!! Servers do move and that was the idea of letting local registrar/webhosting authorities like DOMAINDISCOVER manage, maintain and publish the nfowars.net group of domain name hosting lookup name-servers/number-records

If the NWO took over domaindiscover.com Alex may have to move his site to another company and the number 216.240.145.12 is part of their 'netblock' of reserved numbers, so would be invalid afterwards!

There are so many ways to mask and tunnel that unless the censoree (google) condones, agrees and abets to the fraud, censoring the visitor based upon where his request for a page comes from (google.ca syndrome)  British Red China can go jump in the Sea of Japan

Also it's a great idea to cultivate friendships with internet savvy pals in other countries both near and far who might someday be able to contact nameservers that you might be blocked from accessing and learn and explore how to use your own computers master top-priority HOSTS file to both block your computer from ever connecting to unwanted snooping websites (used for ads and tracking visitor behaviors and statistics) and to lookup websites you value and treasure, bypassing any possible DNS-spoofing monkey business your ISP may try to pull on you.

In fact Prisonplanet members here should have a prearranged third party array of meetup type webpages like a random unlisted webring  to offer/provide emergency reconnection information sharing in the event of any free speech ending contingency

Also I forgot a few other contingencies related to the last two sentences:

If the NWO took over domaindiscover.com Alex may have to move his site to another company and the number 216.240.145.12 is part of their 'netblock' of reserved numbers, so would be invalid afterwards!

There are so many ways to mask and tunnel that unless the censoree ....

Not only if domaindiscover turned on Alex  but if their netblock of reserved numbers were rerouted by some nefarious netwerkerz (unlikely because they may be blocking their own mom's website, too, but you never know..) then Alex may have to move again for reasons beyond those of a normal rational contingency. This is an old radical-right problem adult websites and online casino folks blew the doors off of years ago!

Firstly if just one's DNS records are being nefariously spoofed on certain remote networks (used to be illegal) you put up a mirror or mirrors (actually just aliases even) and email your subscribers of alternate domain names pointing to the mirrors.

Second if the IP Address is blocked the IP Address of the mirrors are not (yet anyways) and you can change and juggle them too.

Third if the IP Address is blocked it can be changed and largely repropagated in as little as a half hour (though may take days for some slow-ass ISP's to update their local DNS caches) assuming the domain name is not also blocked, which, again, used to be illegal...(any criminal redirection of a domain is out and out fraud or domain hijacking actually, illegal under international law and by tariff convention)

Move the servers or their mirror(s) to some caribbean island beyond the reach of criminal censorship

Of course anyone who signs up for IPV6-only "Internot 2" instant high definition propaganda Internet Services richly deserves the loads of shiny crap they've willingly agreed to get stuck with...

And then these inside-out host broadcasting methods described above completely leave out the too-numerous and too-easy to set up and move dynamically outside-in guest-masking, guest relaying and guest tunneling "anonymizer", "ghost surfing" and "SSH(encrypted alternate port) tunneling" methods that can be used to sneak out of and bypass any and even the most sophisticated attempts to 'censor your internet'

In fact you know, the more I think about it, the more obvious it looks like this universal mind spring of the world wide web is the very colossus of kind, loving, sharing between all the members of All Love's creation that the beasts of war and tyranny failed to account for in their evil plans to repeat history for their selfish arrogant, hateful and nefarious goals. The fatal words that keep bouncing around in my head are the idiotic assumptions of the hateful Al CIAda-engineering moron Zbigniew  Brzezinski

Quote
Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values (fundamental Republican Liberal values like the freedoms of human rights?), this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control. Technical and scientific momentum would then feed on the situation it exploits.

The fundamental flaw in his postwar ENIAC mindset was his inability to understand that a redundant, autonomous, self re-routable computing, addressing and communications network designed to survive any attack or breakdown had created the neo-sociological transcendent momentum of a world wide web of freed loving minds that would feed and sustain humanity - not it's exploiters...

   Due to the recent events regarding Internet 2, and censorship, I will be focusing on alternative communications for the sharing of ideas
as my special area of focus in the infowar.  The situation is degrading rapidly, and we dont really know how much time we have left.  My specialty
is radio communications and with the help of networking engineers, IT specialists, codemonkeys, and ordinary people we can start setting up networks and alternative communications methods TODAY, so lets get started.

    So lets look at some ideas which are out there right now:

  #1 Sneakerware:   This is exchanging data via handcarry methods.  Using USB flashdrives, DVD/CDs, external hard drives, and other media
we can handcarry data and exchange it with other folks.  If you dont have a USB flashdrive (aka thumbdrive) yet, GET ONE.  I recommend one with thats at least 5GB, so you can handcarry movies, documentaries, etc.   
http://chinesewall.ccc.de/freedomstick-en.html  <---Thanks to Gunny for the link.
http://www.truecrypt.org/

  #2 Neighborhood Wifi Networks:   We could host an access point (AP) and connect it to Networked storage or to a server running a freeware
application to allow access. We need to stick with US WiFi frequencies, as equipment is plentiful and common.  I need suggestions and tutorials on how to set up a freeware application that would communicate via ethernet or wifi.  Please post ideas in this thread.
802.11s rollout isnt far off...

Basic Antenna Tutorial- for this to be effective we really need outdoor antennas for users as well as AP operators.

http://www.stumbler.net/
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDGW7J1X7YY


   #3  Amateur Radio Systems: Amateur Radio packet, D-Star, and other systems could be set up.  In the US, Wifi channels 1through 6 are available for use to amateur radio operators with additional power than most off the shelf WiFi equipment.  If necessary, gear could be "freebanded" to cover more frequencies.
This shows some promise -->http://outernet.wikidot.com/default
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packet_radio
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinternet
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-Star

    Right now we at least need to keep in touch with other folks in the movement, and set up exchanges for thumbdrives so we can share information by hand as a last ditch effort.  That is not ideal, however, because we cannot distribute time sensitive information quickly.
Heck, owning a good shortwave radio and setting up your computer to use Audacity or a similar program to record foreign or ham radio reports
and convert them to MP3 for distribution would really help out.  Someone posted above using PDF files as a medium, this would be important as well for text and captioned photos.

The freedomstick from Chaos Computer Club is a "plug and play" application suite you place on a thumb drive, when you put it in a computer it automatically puts you on the tor network and gets you through censorship.

It was used by reporters at the Olympic games.
