992af95d 1Radical servers comparision {#radical-servers-comparision-1}
2===========================
3
4This document pretends to show a comparision of the radical servers. At
5least the one I\'ve used. I\'ll dig onto their privacy policy, what they
6provide...
7
8Riseup
9======
10
11RiseUp is an anarchocommunist radical server. It provides, for
12registered users: E-Mail and XMPP. For unregistered users, it provides
13mailing lists, VPN, pads, filesharing...
14
15E-Mail
16------
17
18Their E-Mail servers is **really** good. You can have infinite aliases.
19So you can use your riseup account without having to give your real
20address. (You can delete adresses anytime)
21
22XMPP
23----
24
25Riseup. I love you and all. But please, fix your XMPP server, it\'s
26unusable:
27
28- Can\'t use HTTP File Upload
29
30- Does not support avatars in MUC
31
32- Does not support MUC
33
34- Does not support message carbons
35
36 In other worse. Their XMPP could be **MUCH** better. I hope they fix
37 it.
38
39Privacy policy
40--------------
41
42- No IP address log
43
44Awesome. I don\'t do this either.
45
46- Keep \"From:\" and \"To:\" E-Mail headers to prevent spam
47
48This is okay. I mean, even if you use PGP, the emails header cannot be
49encrypted. Those logs are removed after a few days.
50
51- Last logins are in quarters.
52
53Meaning they just log that you log once every 4 months. Which is good.
54
55- Data is encrypted. And only Riseup can decrypt it. Cool. Feds cannot
56 break onto Riseup\'s
57
58Riseup and government
59---------------------
60
61According to <https://riseup.net/en/about-us/policy/government-faq>,
62Riseup would rather nuke their server than giving information to the
63government.
64
65If you do illegal things in Riseup (drugs, cheese pizza) (which, btw,
66violates Riseup\'s TOS), riseup will most likely work with the feds to
67stop you rather than nuking the organization.
68
69Conclusion
70----------
71
72Riseup is literally the best thing you can do for E-Mail. **BUT** you
73need to be invited to it. And no. the writer of this won\'t give you an
74invite. Don\'t use this for XMPP.
75
76Snopyta
77=======
78
79Snopyta provides way more services than Riseup (which doesn\'t means
80it\'s better)
81
82According to the privacy policy. \"No data will be ever shared\"
83
84Searx
85-----
86
87I use the snopyta searx instance as my search engine. And I haven\'t had
88a single problem with it. They **DON\'T** log any IP address or search
89queries. But they really have to update the Searx version. So we can use
90the morty proxy feature.
91
92XMPP
93----
94
95I haven\'t used it. But a friend has. And he haven\'t had a single
96problem with it. So I guess it is good. According to the
97conversations.im compliance test. It has 100% of compliance.
98Recommended. IP addresses are not stored in the server. Nice
99
100E-Mail
101------
102
103Idk. I haven\'t use it, they aren\'t offering more accounts. But,
104according to their privacy policy:
105
106- Emails are stored plain text unless you use PGP or something like
107 that. But the drive where the mails are is encrypted. The sent and
108 recieved logs are cleaned every 24 hours.
109
110Mastodon
111--------
112
113I use the <https://social.snopyta.org> mastodon instance. By default.
114nothing is stored in the server unless you create an account. According
115to the mastodon privacy policy everything you post is stored in the
116server (Including private messages). So don\'t use it for sensitive
117things.
118
119DNS services
120------------
121
122Nothing is logged. If there\'s some abuse, logs will be kept, but will
123be nuked after 24 hours.
124

126Kalli.st
127----------
128
129https://kalli.st provides various services. E-Mail, Git, XMPP,Pleroma
130and lainsafe (:D)
131
132I've only tried their E-Email and their Git, seems to work
133properly. Also good luck getting an account.
134
992af95d 135Conclusion
136----------
137
138Use it for Searx and XMPP, maybe Mastodon if you want. They provide
139more services. But they're require an account or are no too privacy
140oriented. (RSS, for example) They also provide this pastebin which
141uses AES256 encryption. And according to them. They have no way to
142decrypt it.
143
144If you don\'t trust their \"no logs\" policy, alright, they provide a
145hidden service (.onion) for everything. So use that instead!
146
147These are all the services I\'ve used for things. If I use more
148services. I\'ll add them here.
