Deep Web for Journalists - Comms, Counter-Surveillance, Search
Journalism has been transformed by the Internet and the Internet has opened journalists to levels of surveillance that would have horrified George Orwell. All journalists should be aware of the dangers they face in the digital world – the emerging battleground.
These days it is not just journalists working in repressive regimes that need worry. Increasingly, outwardly-democratic governments are tightening control over the Internet and those who use it. So how can journalists safeguard their sources and communicate without being overheard? How can they conduct sensitive research without having to watch their backs?
This book will show how to set up secure communications, mask your identity online and browse and download anonymously, and store any amount of data without leaving a trace. If that wasn't enough, the Deep Web is also a largely-unknown research and information resource. If you know the right entry points, you can mine a rich seam of multimedia files, images, software and documents that you cannot find on the Surface Web.
"Compelling reading for all journalists" – Jim Boumelha, President, International Federation of Journalists.
