Security response team


(Jonne Haß) #1

I think we need to form a security response team to be contacted for responsible disclosure. We could setup a shared email account and share a PGP keypair which we each sign with our own keys.

Count me in, who’s with me?


(Flaburgan) #3

Hm, I don’t think I have the competence to be in, so, without me :wink:


(raven24) #4

+1


(goob) #5

It sounds like a very good idea, but like Fla I don’t think I have the competence, I’m afraid.

(I have a mental picture of you all in riot gear and assault rifles, going in like a SWAT team…)


(Jason Robinson) #6

+1 for this, but I think I’ll stay out, way too many things going on :stuck_out_tongue:

(offtopic maybe but don’t really understand the PGP part? Isn’t the point to receive alerts and act on them? :P)


(Jonne Haß) #7

PGP for the paranoid so that they can send us encrypted mails and it doesn’t matter if the mailbox gets hijacked or the mail gets intercepted or whatever. Just common practice and can’t do harm :wink: So any suggestions where to get a mailbox?


(Jason Robinson) #8

The paranoid will probably not even send emails to gmail :stuck_out_tongue:


(Jonne Haß) #9

Well, with PGP they could, Gmail won’t be able to read them :wink:


(Tom Scott) #10

+1 definitely.

@jonneha what about create an email on @diasporaproject.org when Sean will have access to it ? We certainly have an email server somewhere (with OVH, I have an email address with every domain name I have, maybe it’s the same here)


(Jonne Haß) #12

We still have no sign of life from the domain owner. That’s basically why I’m asking.


(Tom Scott) #13

Who owns diasporaproject.org anyway?


(Jonne Haß) #14

whois diasporaproject.org gonna tell you. Somewhat.


(goob) #15

Max must know this person, or at least how to get in contact with them, otherwise they wouldn’t have pointed diasporafoundation.org to his site in the first place - surely?


(goob) #16

Sorry, Maxwell, not Max - didn’t mean to shorten his name.


(fabianrbz) #17

Count me in!

A good, simple, secure and free mail, I think this one could do it:

They have both email and mailing lists. There are two ways to get an account, either by writing them a request and telling them who we are and why we want it, or by using invitation codes, and as both I and Paul do already have accounts for personal purposes we could generate invitation codes.

What do you say?


(Jonne Haß) #19

We now got full control over diasporafoundation.org, including a mail server listening to it, run by @dennisschubert. It’s time to make security@diasporafoundation.org reality. I’m going to generate and publish a PGP key for it, anybody who wants to be in the team can contact me and I’ll share the key with you, unless somebody knows a better method to get PGP working on that address.

I’ve not heard about security@diasporafoundation.org before, Jonne. What is it intended to be? I’d like to know to see if it’s something I could be a part of.
