Many people believe that security-by-obscurity doesn’t work: the proprietary closed-source firmwares - could contain the vulnerabilities/backdoors that are huge security & privacy risk! That’s why we go through a quest of getting the rare suitable hardware - and flashing it with the opensource firmware, to get an extra great protection for our privacy.
For the privacy-loving community around the world, we at 3mdeb are organizing a new “vPub v3” opensource online party. Our past v1 & v2 parties have turned out wonderful - especially the last one with Richard Stallman was pretty exciting! Now, a new much-awaited v3 event is coming: it’s going to be highly interesting to the privacy-conscious people who are serious enough to dive to the firmware level, and also lots of fun!
We will discuss the open/libre firmware/hardware for true cybersecurity (not by obscurity), and more! Join us tomorrow on 16th November at 8 PM UTC - using this page: https://vpub.dasharo.com/
Our new vPub is directly after the "Linux Secure Launch" TrenchBoot Summit that we’re co-hosting between 4 - 8 PM UTC on 16th Nov too. It’s going to be a deep dive into the truly secure opensource firmware booting - an exciting journey for those interested in firmware hardening their systems.
You are welcome to join any or both of these events, and we will be waiting for you! Let’s try to stress test our servers’ capabilities and beat the previous record of 50 attendees
