Title: Anybody with knowledge of Solid or Inrupt-
Post by: wmsonta on October 14 2018, 05:38:35 PM
because I don't have.
I understand the stated goals. Seems a monumental undertaking. My imagination tells me, it would have to be something like using Tor to surf the www.

This thread will probably equate to a shot in the dark. If there were info, I should have found it.

from the duckduckgo.com search it appears to be a start up of some sort.


As you posted, it seems a good idea but getting pandora back into the box would seem  to be a monumental task.

yeah,
I am removing files, additions to the registry, etc. All involve tracking. To the tune of 16-40 additions a week. They are impossible to keep out and surf the web normally.

I wish these people luck.

Yep, a regular registry clean to keep things moving is pretty high on the to do list with my old a$$ equipment.

I wouldnít spend much time worrying about it. I doubt itíll be something that youíll ever need to use.

If I was doing registry scans and finding malicious code, Iíd be making some changes.

Almost looks like an attempt to create the apple ecosphere for everyone else , that all encompassing blind trust in one vendor

Yup just another letís put it all in the cloud and trust the vendor with it.

First, I should thank you posters. This exceeds my expectations. I will use capitol letters for emphasis.

I have been somewhat involved with computer security for 2 decades. Although self taught, I am not a chimp.

This tracking is not malicious, it is institutionali zed. I BELIEVE everyone who does not connect though their own T-1 server, is tracked/has this now. This is not cookies, which are easy to find. This does not get in though a browser and therefore not from a website. I stumbled upon my ISP's logs for my 'neighborhood'. They are just basically a router.


Antivirus and anti malware programs, registry cleaners, etc will not find this. It APPEARS it is not getting in though Windows or other updates. I am curious, if open source OS's have this problem or are aware of it. Given time, I will have that answer.

Iím more of a network security guy, years in the trenches and itís a full time uphill battle and itís getting worse. Iím glad I donít have to deal with it anymore.

The most effective protection Iíve found is a layered approach it and doesnít start and end at the computer. I donít care to cover my tracks or to be anonymous, I just keep the bad guys out.

I come from an environment where everyone has to have security clearance yet these blind vendors keep pushing design tools that expect to be cloud based or even openly shared.

Yah, every PC is unique and can be identified without cookies.

Iím more of a network security guy,

Yeah, my brother does that. He got a Masters in computer science in the '90's. At one time, he headed a work group for the Navy/Marines testing weapon systems. For yrs now, he has been the top IT guy for the largest county in Ks. I do not charge. Never have.

I am fast approaching the conclusion, although Orwellian in nature it is inescapable. If you want to go online.

Net Neutrality was never law, but was entirely about regulating T-1 servers. Possibly, where this started. The timing has to be close.

I have spent the time this morning, to test my firewall and it answered a ping. The most common 1000+ ports did not respond. After stopping my firewall and a retry, my ISP has not closed any of my ports. Something they routinely do. All modern firewalls are 'adaptive', so no alternatives now exist.

thanx for the response, people-it is the new reality, like it or not. I may try a bare bones Linux distro  from behind a partition, we will see.

Itís the same everywhere. Always some vendor making your day longer than it should be. Then there are the employees that somehow manage to fuck up every they touch, yet are never held accountable.

Yah, every PC is unique and can be identified without cookies.

Yeah, it's called a 'machine name'. It is communicated PC to PC, not through a browser. This can not be stopped if you want to go online. Your ISP logs these automatically. You can use Shields Up to find your identifier. Your IP addy changes all the time. Not the identifier.


Online, I have the ability to change my IP address and country of origin, everything a website sees/requires. Not at my ISP's server.

thanks guys, I am out.

The stuff my kids and wife will click on is unending.
