The research herein provided is research that as a TI I've learned , developed and exercised. As such, it's important to note that the research consists of several different disciplines to countermeasure the effects of covert physical, electronic and psychological torture.
Strategies are also discussed and offered as an means to help deal with abhorrent government (a) buse of power that all TI's are subjected to. For emphasis, strategies are different for every individual and great care should be taken to keep what strategies that are working for you discreet as to not allow the Perps inroads insomuch as to how you're defeating them.
Effectively, the internet has allowed the government to spy on Americans with reckless impunity. More important, is that the internet is another avenue of approach into our minds and is part of the torture matrix network. When one considers current mind control patients and how they are used in conjunction with the internet to control our minds using math algorithms it's clear that we must develop defenses against such technology.
That being said information herein consist of low cost countermeasures that can be implemented to effectively countermeasure technology that is destroying our freedoms here within the United States of America.

Another great free product is JonDoNYM that works with the Firefox web browser and don't forget Hotspot Shield for wireless access points.
The JonDonym anonymous proxy servers technology is based on the principle of multiple (layered) encryption, distribution and processing (Mixing). This unique procedure does not only protect your internet activities from being observed by third parties: also the individual JonDonym anonymous proxy providers (Mix operators) cannot follow your steps. Each internet/web access is individually anonymised. EFF.org

* Steganography: Hiding Data Within Data - Stools
* Information Hiding: Steganography & Digital Watermarking
* The ancient art of hidden writing
Steganography applications conceal information in other, seemingly innocent media. Steganographic results may masquerade as other file for data types, be concealed within various media, or even hidden in network traffic or disk space. We are only limited by our imagination in the many ways information and data can be exploited to conceal additional information.
For many years Information Hiding has captured the imagination of researchers. Digital watermarking and steganography techniques are used to address digital rights management, protect information, and conceal secrets. Information hiding techniques provide an interesting challenge for digital forensic investigations. Information can easily traverse through firewalls undetected. Research into steganalysis techniques aids in the discovery of such hidden information as well as leads research toward improved methods for hiding information.

* The Zfone™ Project
Zfone™ is my new secure VoIP phone software which lets you make secure encrypted phone calls over the Internet. The ZRTP protocol used by Zfone will soon be integrated into many standalone secure VoIP clients, but today we have a software product that lets you turn your existing VoIP client into a secure phone. The current Zfone software runs in the Internet protocol stack on any Windows XP, Vista, Mac OS X, or Linux PC, and intercepts and filters all the VoIP packets as they go in and out of the machine, and secures the call on the fly. You can use a variety of different software VoIP clients to make a VoIP call. The Zfone software detects when the call starts, and initiates a cryptographic key agreement between the two parties, and then proceeds to encrypt and decrypt the voice packets. It has its own little separate GUI, telling the user if the call is secure.
