We urge all governments to promote the use of strong encryption technologies and to protect the right to seek, receive, and impart information anonymously online. Any laws or regulations that restrict the use of encryption or anonymity online should be revised to comply with the strict three-part test the Special Rapporteur sets out in the report.

How Tor plans to grow the anonymous Internet

How Tor plans to grow the anonymous Internet | Education & Numérique | Scoop.it

"Freedom of speech online could get a big boost

 

The anonymous Internet is small. Too small, if you ask many activists, and it may need to grow 10, or even 50, times its current size, if its going to continue to support free speech around an increasingly digital world.

This is another article that talks about the issue of Online anonymity, taking more of the insight that people are able to "display the less appealing parts of their nature." by being anonymous online.

Here’s why you may never be truly anonymous in a big data world

Here’s why you may never be truly anonymous in a big data world | Education & Numérique | Scoop.it

"Big data—the kind that statisticians and computer scientists scour for insights on human beings and our societies—is cooked up using a recipe that’s been used a thousand times. Here’s how it goes: Acquire a trove of people’s highly personal data—say, medical records or shopping history. Run that huge set through a “de-identification” process to anonymize the data. And voila—individuals become anonymous, chartable, and unencumbered by personal privacy concerns.
