I’ve been working on a open source project for out of band communication and now I am looking to more contributors to project. Solution is implemented to various hw’s at the moment, reTerminal, pinephone and RPi 400 etc.
It’s very limited and tailor made, but requests I get - exceed what I am able to support as part time open source developer. If any one is interested and have experience about buildroot, linux kernel, cryptography and QT/QML - maybe you are able to help?
This is what solutions looks like in action: https://youtu.be/mH3LuE05lTM
There is also demand to have this solution running on Librem5 USA, where I am unable to help.
Project name is ‘oobcomm’. Most of us are out of scope to use this, but there are groups of users who are very interested about this. Out-of-band is a term from CISA ransomware incident handling guide  where organizations should have out of band channel to handle responses. I am working to get public repositories visible and meanwhile you can check my wiki around this: https://resilience-theatre.com/wiki/doku.php?id=pinephone:introduction
I will consider contributing to this project if a PeerTube link is provided. I have a Librem 5 USA and a strong interest in cryptography, particularly in one-time pads and QRNG.
Wonder why I need to provide PeerTube link?
And what Youtube has to do with this project?
What your solution looks like in action.
Ah, that’s just a demo video. You don’t need that. Here’s my github repo:
Okay, I am fine accessing GitHub, but I cannot justify creating a GitHub account due to my security practices. If you are okay with this arrangement, we can discuss how we can collaborate. Otherwise, I suggest mirroring to a Codeberg repository.
And you can see similar video here (’ Video of Comms’):
Which is locally served
I like your approach. I have codeberg account as well, so fine with that. Stay tuned.
Here you go!
Love to hear your take on collaboration chat platform
SMS, email, or Discourse.
Awesome, no Signal. I like it.
You can reach me at ‘info’ on my domain (I cannot paste that link, forum prohibits it) or you can use XMPP with: re_theatre with domain 5222.de (forum prohibits writing that as well) for IM.
What about the webcomm? Anything I should know about that, or is it some sort of demo too?
That’s also valid way: I can only response and see while at my desk, I have optical notification light on my desk when msg arrive. And all messages there are ephemeral - so no history after I close chat.
Could you elaborate a bit?
one solution can be mirroning a github project inside a gitea instance…
Sorry for lack of clarity.
I meant what particular security practices or policies preclude opening a github account? I’m not asking for generalities, but for one or a few more of FranklyFlawess for github in particular.
