  • RefControl

    Free Mac OS X Windows Linux Firefox Website

    RefControl is an extension for Firefox that lets you control what gets sent as the HTTP Referer on a per-site basis.

    This can be useful in a number of situations:

    Privacy - Perhaps you think webmasters don't have any business knowing where you found the link to their site. You can configure RefControl to not send the referrer to any site except for ones you explicitly list.
    Broken sites - Some sites perform misguided referrer checks in the name of "security". These checks don't add any real security since the referrer is easily faked and can often cause problems when the browser's behavior changes. You can configure RefControl to send these sites whatever they are expecting and work around this kind of problem.
    Fun - Send humorous things, secure in the knowledge that they are being written into the server's log file for the amusement of anyone who might later discover them there. Ok, maybe that's not much fun, but RefControl will let you do it anyway.

  • Onionshare

    Free Mac Windows Linux Tor Browser Bundle Website

    OnionShare lets you securely and anonymously share a file of any size with someone. It works by starting a web server, making it accessible as a Tor hidden service, and generating an unguessable URL to access and download the file. It doesn't require setting up a server on the internet somewhere or using a third party filesharing service. You host the file on your own computer and use a Tor hidden service to make it temporarily accessible over the internet. The other user just needs to use Tor Browser to download the file from you.

  • RequestPolicy

    Free Mac OS X Windows Linux Firefox Website

    RequestPolicy is an extension for Mozilla browsers that improves the privacy and security of your browsing by giving you control over when cross-site requests are allowed by webpages you visit. It is the first comprehensive client-side protection against CSRF attacks and the first tool to enable the use of modern browsers without cross-site information leakage.

    Improve the privacy of your browsing by not letting other sites know your browsing habits. Secure yourself from Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), Clickjacking, and other attacks.

    Cross-site requests are requests that your browser is told to make by a website you are visiting to a completely different website. Though usually legitimate requests, they often result in advertising companies and other websites knowing your browsing habits, including specific pages you view throughout the day. Among the attacks that cross-site requests are used in, they are particularly dangerous with Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks where your browser is told to make a request to another website and that other website thinks you (the person) meant to make the request.

    With RequestPolicy, the default for any cross-site request is to deny it. Users are notified when requests on the current page have been blocked (the status bar flag icon at the bottom right of your browser turns red). Clicking on this status bar flag icon gives you a menu where you can view and modify which requests are blocked and allowed. You can whitelist requests you approve of by origin site, destination site, or specific origin-to-destination.

    RequestPolicy is compatible with Firefox 3+, SeaMonkey 2.0, Flock 2.0, Songbird 1.0, and Fennec 1.0. It works wherever these browsers do (Linux, BSD, Mac, Windows, etc.).

  • Clean Links

    Free Mac Windows Linux Android iPhone ... Android Tablet BSD iPad Haiku Firefox Website

    This add-on can be used to convert "obfuscated" and/or nested links to genuine/normal plain clean links,

    Eg:
    http://www.foobar.com/goto=https://www.yoursite.com ? https://www.yoursite.com/
    http://example.com/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5nb29nbGUuY29t ? http://www.google.com
    http://www3.dumbsite.com/external/hit/to/www.foobar.com ? http://www.foobar.com/
    • javascript:window.open('http://somesite.com') ? http://somesite.com/

    It also allows to remove affiliate/tracking tags from URLs by the use of configurable patterns, being the most common used ones defined by default (ie, UTM, AFF, REF, etc.)

    The Add-On has two working modes:

    1. DOM Traversing: When a website is loaded its DOM is scanned and any suitable link is cleaned. On this mode when some links are cleared the toolbar button will change and you'll be able to mouse-over it to open its popup where you can see the number of fixed links on the current website.

    2. Delegation: This is a less intrusive mode by just listening to click events. Note that unlike for DOM traversing real-time highlighting and counters will not work then, even though the performance should be much better.

    DOM Traversing was the default mode prior to version 2.4, on later versions Event Delegation mode is set as default, and under Firefox for Android and Thunderbird it shouldn't be changed.

    You can disable the add-on at anytime by clicking the toolbar icon, which will become black/greyed when it's turned off.

And for standard containers and other partitions, TrueCrypt uses at most 2000 iterations but VeraCrypt uses 655340 for RIPEMD160 and 500000 iterations for SHA-2 and Whirlpool.

  • Bitcoin

    Free Mac OS X Windows Linux BSD Website

    Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital currency. Peer-to-peer (P2P) means that there is no central authority to issue new money or keep track of transactions. Instead, these tasks are managed collectively by the nodes of the network.
    Bitcoins can be sent easily through the Internet, without having to trust middlemen.
    Transactions are designed to be computationally prohibitive to reverse.
    Be safe from instability caused by fractional reserve banking and central banks. The limited inflation of the Bitcoin system’s money supply is distributed evenly (by CPU power) throughout the network, not monopolized by banks.

  • HTTPS Everywhere

    Free Windows Linux Android Android Tablet BSD ... Vivaldi Browser Chrome Yandex.Browser Opera Chromium Firefox Website

    HTTPS Everywhere is a browser extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. It encrypts your communications with a number of major websites.

    Many sites on the web offer some limited support for encryption over HTTPS, but make it difficult to use. For instance, they may default to unencrypted HTTP, or fill encrypted pages with links that go back to the unencrypted site.

    The HTTPS Everywhere extension fixes these problems by rewriting all requests to these sites to HTTPS.

    HTTPS Everywhere can protect you only when you're using sites that support HTTPS and for which HTTPS Everywhere includes rules.
