Paranoid operative system methodology for anonymous & secure web browsing, doctoral project

Nuno Coelho, Benjamim Fonseca, António Castro


Recently the world knew by the media, that its leading nations follow closely their citizens, disregarding any moral and technological threshold, that internal and external security agencies in the USA and Europe closely follow telephone conversations, e-mail, web traffic of their counterparts, using powerful monitoring and surveillance programs. In other corners of the globe nations in turmoil or wrapped in the cloak of censorship persecute and deny uncontrolled web access without harmful repercussions to their citizens.
This work is a research-in-progress project and consists in showing the research done so far to develop a methodology. This consists in the construction of an operative system with an academic scientific source that permits a secure and anonymous use of the web. For such methodology, first is required to comprehend and get acquaintance with the technologies that controls usage of web consumers, solutions that enable and grant some anonymity and security in web traffic.
