1 Radical servers comparision {#radical-servers-comparision-1}
2 ===========================
3
4 This document pretends to show a comparision of the radical servers. At
5 least the one I\'ve used. I\'ll dig onto their privacy policy, what they
6 provide...
7
8 Riseup
9 ======
10
11 RiseUp is an anarchocommunist radical server. It provides, for
12 registered users: E-Mail and XMPP. For unregistered users, it provides
13 mailing lists, VPN, pads, filesharing...
14
15 E-Mail
16 ------
17
18 Their E-Mail servers is **really** good. You can have infinite aliases.
19 So you can use your riseup account without having to give your real
20 address. (You can delete adresses anytime)
21
22 XMPP
23 ----
24
25 Riseup. I love you and all. But please, fix your XMPP server, it\'s
26 unusable:
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
39 Privacy policy
40 --------------
41
42 - No IP address log
43
44 Awesome. I don\'t do this either.
45
46 - Keep \"From:\" and \"To:\" E-Mail headers to prevent spam
47
48 This is okay. I mean, even if you use PGP, the emails header cannot be
49 encrypted. Those logs are removed after a few days.
50
51 - Last logins are in quarters.
52
53 Meaning 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
58 Riseup and government
59 ---------------------
60
61 According to <https://riseup.net/en/about-us/policy/government-faq>,
62 Riseup would rather nuke their server than giving information to the
63 government.
64
65 If you do illegal things in Riseup (drugs, cheese pizza) (which, btw,
66 violates Riseup\'s TOS), riseup will most likely work with the feds to
67 stop you rather than nuking the organization.
68
69 Conclusion
70 ----------
71
72 Riseup is literally the best thing you can do for E-Mail. **BUT** you
73 need to be invited to it. And no. the writer of this won\'t give you an
74 invite. Don\'t use this for XMPP.
75
76 Snopyta
77 =======
78
79 Snopyta provides way more services than Riseup (which doesn\'t means
80 it\'s better)
81
82 According to the privacy policy. \"No data will be ever shared\"
83
84 Searx
85 -----
86
87 I use the snopyta searx instance as my search engine. And I haven\'t had
88 a single problem with it. They **DON\'T** log any IP address or search
89 queries. But they really have to update the Searx version. So we can use
90 the morty proxy feature.
91
92 XMPP
93 ----
94
95 I haven\'t used it. But a friend has. And he haven\'t had a single
96 problem with it. So I guess it is good. According to the
97 conversations.im compliance test. It has 100% of compliance.
98 Recommended. IP addresses are not stored in the server. Nice
99
100 E-Mail
101 ------
102
103 Idk. I haven\'t use it, they aren\'t offering more accounts. But,
104 according 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
110 Mastodon
111 --------
112
113 I use the <https://social.snopyta.org> mastodon instance. By default.
114 nothing is stored in the server unless you create an account. According
115 to the mastodon privacy policy everything you post is stored in the
116 server (Including private messages). So don\'t use it for sensitive
117 things.
118
119 DNS services
120 ------------
121
122 Nothing is logged. If there\'s some abuse, logs will be kept, but will
123 be nuked after 24 hours.
124
125
126 Kalli.st
127 ----------
128
129 https://kalli.st provides various services. E-Mail, Git, XMPP,Pleroma
130 and lainsafe (:D)
131
132 I've only tried their E-Email and their Git, seems to work
133 properly. Also good luck getting an account.
134
135 Conclusion
136 ----------
137
138 Use it for Searx and XMPP, maybe Mastodon if you want. They provide
139 more services. But they're require an account or are no too privacy
140 oriented. (RSS, for example) They also provide this pastebin which
141 uses AES256 encryption. And according to them. They have no way to
142 decrypt it.
143
144 If you don\'t trust their \"no logs\" policy, alright, they provide a
145 hidden service (.onion) for everything. So use that instead!
146
147 These are all the services I\'ve used for things. If I use more
148 services. I\'ll add them here.
