Earthmouse: Mobile Guardian

421

Published on

Why is it that the more we come to depend on our mobile phones as our lifeline to the the world, the more willingly we give up privacy and control?

Earthmouse: Mobile Guardian (E:MG) aims to change that by providing regular people with the tools they need to protect their privacy, anonymity and communications with friends, family and colleagues.

Built on the Google Android OS, E:MG will provide both applications and a completely new secure distribution that will run on low cost mobile phone hardware available throughout the world.

We are looking for users, developers, causes and partner organizations to contribute to, inform and guide our work.

Transcript of "Earthmouse: Mobile Guardian"

  1. 1. Earthmouse: Mobile Guardian Secure, Open-Source Smartphone built on Google Android please visit http://earthmouse.org
  2. 2. Android Earthmouse Phone Phone Anonymous Open source Encrypted modern Invisible powerful Obfuscated flexible Ubiquitous
  3. 3. Windows Temporary Mobile Phone + Guardian SD Card = Guardian Phone Permanent Android Guardian = Phone + Guardian Firmware Phone Update
  4. 4. HTC, Kogan, Lenova, Huawei, Motorola, LG, Samsung, Asus http://www.androidonhtc.com
  5. 5. Guardian is Viral Guardian SD Card Guardian Phones can New Communities Phone be converted of Mice! through SD Card “Person to Person” contact
  6. 6. Google Android G
  7. 7. A movement is already underway to create custom versions of Android for a wide variety of phones and purposes.... we just need to tap into that!
  8. 8. Why Android? • Dominant open-source smartphone OS • Easy to convert commercially available handsets • Linux-based with modern development tools • Rich connectivity, location, and sensor features • Backed by Google’s resources and finances
  9. 9. Android Features • Dalvik virtual machine optimized for mobile devices • Integrated browser based on the open source WebKit engine • SQLite for structured data storage • Media support for common audio, video, and still image formats (MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, PNG, GIF) • GSM Telephony (hardware dependent) • Bluetooth, EDGE, 3G, and WiFi (hardware dependent) • Camera, GPS, compass, and accelerometer (hardware dependent)
  10. 10. The State of Mobile Crypto G
  11. 11. Existing products show promise, but are out of date, not good enough or too expensive
  12. 12. Existing Solutions • Providers: CryptoPhone, SecureGSM, NanoPhone Suite • Analog GSM solutions almost entirely for Windows Mobile Smartphones • Corporate focus, poor quality audio, out of date OS and very expensive • Products are not for covert use - they advertise their existence putting user at risk
  13. 13. Popular Smartphones... iPhones and Blackberries are inherently compromised, closed-source and compromised by mobile carriers
  14. 14. Early Efforts on Android Need Work! A password safe for Android that protects your passwords with AES encryption. All encrypted information is stored in a database on the phone. No information is kept online. The only way to backup currently is through the export feature. http://code.google.com/p/android-passwordsafe/

Android O.S. + Guardian Security Layer 1) Enhance existing & develop new secure applications 2) Wrap or replace Application Framework, while adding new libraries and core security services 3) ensure kernel, runtime and virtual machine are “snoop” proof 4) Secure or remove drivers to secure the hardware layer
  20. 20. Build on Existing Projects • The Tor Project Tor is a software project that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security • Psiphon psiphon is a human rights software project developed by the Citizen Lab at the Munk Centre for International Studies that allows citizens in uncensored countries to provide unfettered access to the Net through their home computers to friends and family members who live behind firewalls of states that censor. • Zfone ZfoneTM is a new secure VoIP phone software product which lets you make encrypted phone calls over the Internet. Zfone uses a new protocol called ZRTP, which has a better architecture than the other approaches to secure VoIP.
