moot (or m-o-o-t) was (in 2000) (is, in the
disassembled-bits-in-the-garage sense) a proposed bootable
based-on-OpenBSD OS CD with end-to-end real-time and stored messaging
and deniable storage apps under which the user would have to be really
dumb to expose content, even under the UK's gimme-the-keys-or-go-to-jail
At the time optical storage was bigger than it is now, but it could be
adapted to eg a USB key.
I later added an undetectable "tweet"ing function.
Didn't happen for various reasons, mostly because I am a lazy coder, but
its potential existence did have some effect on the UK crypto laws.
0 It's all about who is in control
1 Someone else is after the stuff you have
2 Stuff you don't have can't be taken from you
3 Everywhere can be attacked
4 Complex systems provide more places to attack
5 Attack methods are many, varied, ever-changing and eternal
6 Only those you trust can betray you
7 Holes for good guys are holes for bad guys too
8 A system which is hard to use will be abused, misused and unused
