[Tutorial] More security
« on: September 27, 2010, 12:25:05 PM »
After some months of inactivity (due to real life) I decide to post this short tutorial for all the PlanetPeer members.



- Download TrueCrypt from: http://www.truecrypt.org/

- Download StealthNet (portable version)

- Create an AES-Twofish-Serpent container with TrueCrypt using a 50/60 characters password (something like this: io>Ue"b~5'-,s>EFjbte3......)

- Move your StealthNet folder into the TrueCrypt container.

- Move all your files into the TrueCrypt container.

- Share all your files with StealthNet.

- Make a backup of your TC container on an external hdd.

Nobody will know that you have used StealthNet.
Nobody will know what you have downloaded (If you get raided, you are safe.)
Nobody will know what you have shared, but you must move the folder "The_StealthNet_Team" (C:/Documents and Settings/<user>/Local settings/Application Data/)


Remember:
Never keep the container password in your pc. *
Never use an "external" incoming folder. Create it in your TC container.
Never forget to delete all windows file thumbnails. Use CCleaner or your disk cleaner utility.
Never disconnect suddenly the power of your pc. If you don't dismount your TC container you can damage it.


*So, where can I keep the password?

- E-mail draft (do not use your personal mail! and rememer to delete all temporary files)
- File host service


Hope this will help someone.

Greetings to all friends ;) and sorry for my english.

Thanks a lot for this tutorial!

But:
Nobody will know that you have used StealthNet.

That's not right. You forgot the files within this folder (on a German WinXP):

C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\<user>\Lokale Einstellungen\Anwendungsdaten\The_StealthNet_Team

mmm you're right.

There's a user.config file that contains a lot of nice things.

I found the terms that i used in the search  :o

Why not put this file into the StealthNet folder? Is there a reason?

Don't know.

Thats the only point where you can find rests of using SteathNet on Windows.
E.g. on an USB-stick or something like this ....

Jep, that would be a good development respective anonymity .... I'll have a look into bugzilla later. Perhaps there is still an entry.
