When civil liberty groups and tech based websites and organisations get together to form a partnership, people take notice and this is exactly what is going with the launch of Reset The Net! It’s a coalition created on the first anniversary of first story released that was related to Edward Snowden and the files he released.
The call is for the owners of websites and mobile apps to carry one of the Reset The Net images and is possible to add extra security features such as a SSL (Secure Socket Layer), HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) or Perfect Forward Secrecy. The whole idea of this in order to show that your privacy matters and that they will be doing their best to protect users privacy.
It is a protest against the NSA and other security services who are routinely spying on innocent people going about their daily lives. It is a big ask, but Reset The Net has some big players backing it, all of whom are worried about the online privacy of ordinary people who are simply going about their normal daily activities and not committing any crimes, or who are a danger to our way of life.
