The information presented in these
pages has become somewhat outdated and
is best viewed for historical
interest only. However, security
and privacy have continued to be major
issues and many solutions are now
available to users. An excellent
up-to-date discussion of the concepts of
Privacy, Security, and "Virtual Private
Network" services (VPNs) are
offered by IVPN
, and by Anonymster.
See PCMagazine's comparison
of a number of VPN paid services and
of free VPN's, and Andrey
Doichev's analysis of current
top free VPN's
. Encrypted storage of information
has become a major concern as well,
particularly with the proliferation of
cloud-based storage (see discussion by PCMagazine
for an analysis and comparisons).
Finally, well-informed and articulate
presentations of a number of timely
security topics can be found in the Information
Security Blog published by Comparitech.
