Communicate -- via Insecure Lines

Obstacles:
  • All forms of communication are monitored; email, web, phone, bugging, etc.
  • Mere mortals don't have a secure transfer mechanism, that the Perps can't tap.
  • Perps impersonate TIs, thwart snail mail & mail.
  • This is not going to change anytime soon -- so the question is, how to deal with it.
Open Communications / with No Attempt to Obscure:
  • Closed Loop (so the sender knows that their "monitored" message was received by recipient):
    • People leave phone message -- see a confirmation on a web page -- e.g. Van's Tip Line.
    • Does anybody have other ideas?
  • Communicating Locally:
    • FRS or CB radio -- on a certain channel at a certain time.
    • Communicate In Person -- whisper in their ear.
    • Never write when you can speak; never speak when you can nod; never nod when you can wink. (I'm not sure this secret communication issue belongs on this page. But it just so witty.)
Private Communications:
  • Privacy isn't the goal of this web site -- but knock yourself out -- here's a bit anyway.
  • Low Tech: No encryption -- out in the open -- Based on something you both know -- sounds like gibberish to others
  • Long Distance -- Communicating over the Internet
  • Code Talk: Sounds like gibberish -- They know what you're doing but there's nothing they can do about it
  • Never write when you can speak; never speak when you can nod; never nod when you can wink.
