OSS used in fight for human rights

Filed under
OSS

Last year we ran a story on Martus (see story), an open source software tool used by human rights workers, attorneys, journalists and others who need to secure their information from eavesdropping, theft or equipment failure.

Named after the Greek word for witness, Martus is a secure information management tool that allows users to create a searchable and encrypted database and back this data up remotely to a choice of publicly available servers. The Martus software is used by organiations around the world to protect sensitive information and shield the identity of victims or witnesses who provide testimony on human rights abuses.

Analyzer

Sometimes used in conjunction with Martuse, Analyzer is used to capture and analyse data collected by human rights groups that contain details of human rights abuses from various sources, including medical records, newspaper articles, witness testimonies, letters, interviews, and official reports and documents.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
