FOSS doesn't make a software good or bad. FOSS makes good software better. But FOSS doesn't make bad software good.

I wrote an analysis on the Arsenal and Pegasus reports on the Bhima Koregaon case and explain why the case has completely collapsed as of today.

I also have found indicators on who has done the planting.

8. We also found earlier, through RTI documents, that the govt had installed a "strategic" tool that mass snoops on citizens' social media activities from 61 locations across the country. It was in the process of installing the tool at 59 more locations. business-standard.com/article/

7. And mind you, a 360º data-system of granular profiles of all residents is not a pipe dream in India anymore. I saw it functioning in the state of Telangana, shredding privacy of its 30 million residents. Here is the scary picture I saw. Read in Part 3 reporters-collective.in/projec

6. The top govt bureaucrat who originally planned this project now fears it would "hasten India’s tilt towards a police state" Files notings show he had warned during the project's development but the warnings were ignored. In part 2 of the series reporters-collective.in/projec

4. But in reality the govt is building an all-encompassing, auto-updating, searchable database that integrates religion, caste, income, property, employment, disability, family-tree and geo tagged data of homes of every Indian. Read about it in 6 languages reporters-collective.in/projec

Systemically large SDK providers need to have higher bar in security - especially after there was at least one incident of them getting hacked. A particular SDK is used ~1000 highly used apps - covering easily 75-80% of smartphone base of India. cc @iam_anandv

Accountability needs Public hearings & reports. Where are the reports hearings on Cambridge Analytica, Net neutrality, Aadhaar, Facebook Hatespeech, Pegasus(2019) etc .

Make sure no more secret hearings on Pegasus. Live stream hearings on Pegasus & publish timely reports

Overnight, reports began circulating in Israeli media attempting to discredit by twisting the words of an @amnesty statement.

Happy to see the tribe watching authoritarian tech is expanding.

When we started pointing technology related surveillance aspects in Aadhaar there was no media to report. The space slowly got expanded after in 2017 and now to newsrooms with Digital Forensics.

In today's Hindu, I argue that we need to professionalize intelligence gathering, bringing intelligence agencies under parliamentary oversight, making them non-partisan, and ensuring that civil liberties and rule of law are protected.
