Dust: Your Feed RSS Belongs To You! Avoid Censorship!

Presented at DEF CON 19 (2011), Aug. 5, 2011, 2 p.m. (50 minutes)

Law around the world is trying to control what is published on the Internet. After wikileaks case and HBGary ownage everybody could see how there are many controls that can be used to close a website, a domain name and to cut the communication between the source and the audience. What happened if someone wants to close your blog? Could you send any message to your audience? In this talk we provide you a new way to publish your RSS feeds using P2P networks as a failover system. Dust is "only" a Reader but could manage P2P Feeds, multiples http feeds from the same source, and the most important feature, can migrate from one feed to multiple ones without any effort for all your attendees.
