The Counter-surveillance resource center is a searchable database of resources on evading targeted surveillance. We want to help anarchists and other rebels acquire a practical understanding of the surveillance threats they may face in their struggles and in their lives. We prefer resources that are easy to understand and written by friends.

"At the end of 2005, the FBI opened a new phase of its assault on earth and animal liberation movements - known as the Green Scare [...]. This offensive, dubbed Operation Backfire, was intended to obtain convictions for many of the unsolved Earth Liberation Front arsons of the preceding ten years - but more so, to have a chilling effect on all ecological direct action. In the following analysis [...] we review everything we can learn from the Operation Backfire cases, with the intention of passing on the lessons for the next generation of environmental activists."

Il senso di questa iniziativa era, per noi, principalmente iniziare a schiarirci le idee rispetto alla tematica dell'uso repressivo del DNA, confrontandoci con chi ci potesse aiutare a muovere i primi passi nella comprensione sia delle cosiddette basi scientifiche di cui il sistema giuridico si sta dotando per affinare il proprio operato, che del funzionamento delle nuove leggi, disposizioni e procedure in materia di prelievo e uso forense della prova genetica [...]."

"Seit mehreren Jahren wird aber auch die DNA-Analyse wichtiger für politische Ermittlungsverfahren. Die Polizei sammelt immer mehr DNA-Spuren an Tatorten und von Verdächtigen. Mittlerweile können durch bessere Techniken bereits kleinste Spuren eine Aussagekraft über Menschen geben. Manchmal ist eine DNA-Spur vor Gericht entscheidend für eine Verurteilung. Das alles wirft Fragen auf, die wir mit dieser Comic-Story zumindest ansatzweise angehen wollen. Wo befindet sich überhaupt DNA und wie kommt sie dahin? Wie verhalten wir uns bei Aktionen oder bei drohender Repression? Wir wollen sicherer im Umgang mit DNA bei Aktionen und in Strafverfaren werden."

"There are many guides out there that describe everything from the best ways of building timed incendiary devices, to dealing with DNA, to anti-forensic methods and how to secure digital information against search and seizure or government surveillance. Some of them are over forty years old, others are newer, some of them still hold up while others need updating. We thought it wouldn't hurt to have some suggestions, a brief "things to consider" article, that is reasonably up-to-date in regards to the enemy's methods. Some lessons and experiences combined with technical info but in a format that hopefully doesn't feel too rigid and authoritarian."

Certains d'entre eux ont plus de quarante ans, d'autres sont plus récents, certains sont encore valables, d'autres doivent être mis à jour. Nous avons pensé que ça ne ferait pas de mal de rassembler quelques suggestions, un article pas trop long avec des "trucs à prendre en considération", qui soit raisonnablement en phase avec les méthodes de l'ennemi. Quelques leçons et expériences mélangées à des informations techniques, mais dans un format qui, nous l'espérons, ne soit pas trop rigide et autoritaire."

Vissa av dem är över fyrtio år gamla, andra är nyare, vissa av dem håller än medan andra behöver uppdateras. Vi tänkte att det inte skulle skada med ett litet förslag, en liten att-tänka-på-artikel, som ligger någorlunda i fas med fiendens metoder. Lite lärdomar och erfarenheter blandat med ren teknisk info men i ett format som förhoppningsvis inte känns alltför stelt och auktoritärt."

They are told that they will be able to speed up their administrative procedures, and that they will be slowed down if they refuse.

"Die Entscheidung eines engen Gefährten, sich den Klauen des Staates zu entziehen, konfrontierte uns mit einer Situation, die uns bisher unbekannt war und uns ehrlich gesagt vollkommen überforderte. Wir haben uns auf die Suche nach Erfahrungen und Spuren gemacht, um der schemenhaften Gestalt der Klandestinität Konturen geben zu können. Wir denken, dass es enorm wichtig ist, das Thema mit all seinen Fragen und Facetten als gemeinsame Realität vieler Menschen zu sehen. Ein Leben, fern von den bekannten Orten und geliebten Menschen. Ein Leben, das Menschen zu Unsichtbaren macht.

"Die zumindest in politischen Kreisen naheliegende Frage »Wer ist ein Spitzel?«, wird hier an keiner Stelle explizit reflektiert. Wir wollen keine schematischen Spitzelenttarnungsrezepte liefern, wo selbstständiges Denken, Analysieren und Aufmerksamkeit jenseits der Paranoia gefordert sind. Wer dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird aber unserer Meinung und Hoffnung nach mit dieser Frage verant- wortlicher umgehen können als zuvor. Er oder sie werden wissen, was sie schon wussten, dass es nämlich Spitzel gibt, aber sie werden hinzugelernt haben, wann, wie und wo sie aufgetreten sind. Welche Methoden sie anwenden, mit welchen Legenden sie arbeiten und wie sie – zumindest manchmal – enttarnt werden konnten. Sie werden auch eine Ahnung davon bekommen haben, in welchen Verhältnissen Spitzel wachsen und gedeihen können und welche soziale und politische Umwelt ihnen eher hinderlich ist."

Advice from CSRC: if you're interested in this resource, you might also be interested in Organizing Against the G20 in Toronto: Interview with Mandy Hiscocks.
"This zine explores the conspiracy case that came out of the G20 summit in Toronto, Canada in 2010. It examines the role anarchists played in organizing resistance to the G20 and the ways in which the state responded to this activity. It can help sharpen our understanding of how states use surveillance, infiltration, and the legal system itself to prevent people from acting. It's an important expansion on the topics raised in other more basic security culture zines."

Anlass war das Ermittlungsverfahren [...] der BAW gegen zuletzt 18 Personen wegen des Verdachts der Bildung einer terroristischen Vereinigung. Vorgeworfen werden dieser Vereinigung diverse v.a. Brandanschläge in den Regionen Hamburg und Berlin zwischen 2005 und 2007. Mitte Juni 2007 übermittelte die BAW im Rahmen der Akteneinsicht einen "Auszug" der Ermittlungsakten.

"Defend Dissent is an introduction to cryptography paired with the social impacts of surveillance and the protective potential of encryption, with a focus on US social movements. Each chapter ends with a story that brings social context to the material - from surveillance used against contemporary US protests to the African National Congress’s use of partially manual encryption in fighting apartheid in South Africa in the 80s."

It was sufficient for the computer to be connected to the internet and the miserable ones were able to hear all audio nearby (no video because the webcam has always been blocked out).

"Le mandat d'arrêt européen est fondé sur le principe de la reconnaissance mutuelle des décisions pénales entre les États membres de l'Union européenne. Il se base donc sur l'idée que tous les États de l'UE ont un système judiciaire respectable et juste, et à ce titre toute latitude leur est laissée pour juger selon leurs propres règles de droit. Selon ce principe, "lorsque l'autorité judiciaire d'un État membre demande la remise d'une personne, soit en vertu d'une condamnation définitive, soit parce que cette personne fait l'objet de poursuites pénales, sa décision doit être reconnue et exécutée automatiquement sur tout le territoire de l'Union."

Порой приходят с обысками, изымают технику – и через определённое время, как правило, возвращают. Многие из-за паранойи вынуждены впоследствии её продавать и покупать новое железо, так как не исключают вживления в устройства аппаратных бекдоров.

Подобная неопределённость оказывает сковывающий эффект на правозащитников, оппозиционных политиков, юристов и активистов, и ограничивает их возможности в реализации своих прав, в том числе права на неприкосновенность частной жизни, свободу объединений, свободу мирных собраний и свободу выражения мнений."

"I want to have the kinds of security practices that allow me to be open while knowing that I've assessed the risk I face and am taking smart steps to minimize it. Security culture should make openness more possible, not less. This proposal for security culture is based on reframing: on shifting our focus from fear to confidence, from risk aversion to courage, from isolation to connection, and from suspicion to trust."

"The following precautions may seem extreme, but the technology of DNA matching has pushed us into a whole new era and the full impact has yet to be felt. During the 1990s, crime labs needed a sample that had hundreds of cells to be able to get a DNA print. Researchers have announced success with new techniques that require only a single cell as the sample. This technology will soon be in the crime labs if it’s not already. With this advance, investigators can use a microscopic skin flake instead of needing a whole drop of blood or saliva. And humans are constantly shedding skin flakes."

"Las siguientes precauciones pueden parecer extremas, pero la tecnología de secuenciación del ADN nos ha impulsado a una era completamente nueva cuyo impacto debemos todavía sentir del todo. Durante la década de 1990, los laboratorios forenses necesitaban una muestra que tuviera cientos de células para poder ser en grado de obtener una huella de ADN. Los investigadores han anunciado victoriosamente de haber obtenido hoy nuevas técnicas que requieren solo una sola célula como muestra. Esta tecnología pronto estará en los laboratorios forenses si no lo está ya. Con este avance, los investigadores pueden usar una microscópica escama de piel en lugar de necesitar una gota entera de sangre o de saliva. Y los humanos pierden constantemente escamas de piel."

"Towards the end of 2014 we started to suspect that two members of the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network (MISN) - the mining justice group we are a part of - were not who they said they were. In the beginning of 2015, we kicked them out of our group, quite certain they were undercover police. In the summer of 2015, an article about our experiences was published in a mainstream Toronto newspaper. This is that same story, but this time around we are using our own words and political analysis rather than framings that are palatable to mainstream media."

"[A] shotgun is your best bet at taking down a drone. Preferably one loaded with the largest spread ammunition you can find. [...] Of course not all methods of taking out a drone need to involve literal firearms. [...] Paintballs are a no-go. [...] Airsoft guns and other plastic-pellet guns are worthless. [...] Slingshots will likely work - again, assuming you can hit. [...] Last but not least, you never want to underestimate the power of just throwing crap.

"On a rarement rappelé le fait que la preuve par l'ADN n'est, tout simplement, pas infaillible. Il y a, à cela, une raison évidente. En venant contester la valeur technique de la preuve par l'ADN, on se place sur le même terrain que la science et la justice. On paraît admettre que, si la preuve par l'ADN pouvait être absolument fiable, il n'y aurait plus de raison de la contester. (...) Mais, d'un autre côté, peut-on déserter entièrement le terrain que se sont choisi la science et la justice pour se donner ainsi une apparence d'infaillibilité ? Refuser d'entrer dans ce débat, c'est paraître entériner le discours dominant sur l'irréfutabilité de la preuve ADN. Le but de ce texte est donc de porter l'attaque sur cet aspect des choses sans pour autant l'isoler d'une critique plus générale."

"Η παρούσα μπροσούρα αποτελεί συλλογή-συγκέντρωση δημοσιευμένων κατά καιρούς κειμένων για την αυτοπροστασία απέναντι στις κατασταλτικές μεθόδους. Από τη γνώση για τις παρακολουθήσεις κινητών τηλεφώνων και ηλεκτρονικών συσκευών, μέχρι την πρόληψη για την όσο το δυνατόν καλύτερα «καλυμμένη» δράση μας και την αντιπαρακολούθηση, σημασία έχει από την πλευρά μας η κατάκτηση της συλλογικής εμπειρίας για το πώς θα αντιδράσουμε αν βρεθούμε στα χέρια τους, μα ακόμη καλύτερα πως θα δράσουμε για να μην βρεθούμε σε αυτά."

"To je smyslem Černorudé příručky - podpořit v nás sebevědomí, zmenšit náš strach a zároveň přiložit další kámen do pevnosti s názvem bezpečnostní kultura. Nejde přitom jen o jednotlivce, důsledný musí být každý jeden z nás. Pokud všichni budeme pevní a důslední, pak se výrazně sníží riziko, že budeme chyceni a nakonec rozbiti jako celek."

"In the 80s, an anarchist who wanted, for example, to burn some building, developed his/her plan and at the same time looked to see if there were no listening devices in his/her house. In the late 90s, the same anarchist turned off the phone and used encrypted traffic on the Internet. In the 2020s, we need to reconsider our strategy, intelligence gathering has improved and we must also take this into account."

En la década de 2020, tenemos que reconsiderar nuestra estrategia, los servicios de inteligencia han mejorado su capacidad de recolección de datos y debemos tenerlo en cuenta."

Since then, I have seen the software widely adopted by anarchist networks across Canada and the United States.

"Телефоны и телефонная связь уже давно являются рядовыми вещами в нашей повседневной жизни. И как часто случается с рядовыми повседневными вещами — сейчас сотовые телефоны (использование стационарных телефонов в вашей революционной деятельности следует исключить полностью) встроены в плотную сеть контроля, окутывающую нас со всех сторон. Уже ни для кого не секрет, что телефон — это не только удобное средство срочной связи, но и прекрасная возможность для спецслужб следить за их владельцами. Об этом сказано уже много, и многие рядовые участники анархистского движения, очевидно, уже имеют свой набор правил использования телефонов для связи с товарищами и семьей. Тем не менее, за незнанием и неследованиям некоторым правилам их использования, телефоны продолжают быть немыми свидетелями нашей деятельности и врагами культуры безопасности."

Names are stored if people have had their identity checked, or if they have registered a demonstration under their name. Many are recorded under false designations. Such entries have raised concerns around them being used for further repression [...]. Discriminatory and stigmatising labels have also been applied to people whose data is held by the police."

"This short zine is a discussion of security culture that argues that respect for the security needs of our comrades is an essential aspect of any movement for liberation. It identifies a concept that the authors call "the invisible ground". They use this concept to describe an imagined distinction between "under-" and "above-" ground activities. Instead the authors argue that there is a constantly shifting terrain in which the state is redefining the boundaries of "acceptable" and "unacceptable" protest."

"People are starting to ask us about a recent tech report from Sambuddho's group about how an attacker with access to many routers around the Internet could gather the netflow logs from these routers and match up Tor flows. It's great to see more research on traffic correlation attacks, especially on attacks that don't need to see the whole flow on each side. But it's also important to realize that traffic correlation attacks are not a new area."

"Transparent Lives: Surveillance in Canada details nine key trends in the processing of personal information, trends that are evident throughout the world. They affect all Canadians, but few citizens are aware of how, when, for what purpose, or with what consequences their personal data are used by large organizations. Hence the title: Transparent Lives. This book demonstrates that our lives are open and visible to organizations as never before and that in every area of life—as citizens, consumers, workers, and travellers—this makes a difference."

"Vivre à nu : la surveillance au Canada expose neuf grandes tendances qui sont observées dans le traitement des renseignements personnels partout dans le monde. Ces tendances touchent tous les Canadiens, mais peu d’entre eux savent comment, quand et à quelles fins leurs données personnelles sont utilisées par les grandes organisations et quelles sont les conséquences de cette utilisation. Voilà pourquoi cet ouvrage est intitulé Vivre à nu ; il démontre que nos vies sont plus que jamais ouvertes et visibles pour les organismes et que cette visibilité a de réels effets sur chaque sphère de notre vie, que nous soyons citoyens, consommateurs, travailleurs ou voyageurs."

"Petit tutoriel de base sur l’usage d’une clé Tails, système d’exploitation qui tient sur une clef USB. Utile pour tout ce qui touche à la sécurité informatique et relativement simple d’usage. Ce petit guide sert de complément à une formation Tails. Il est construit à partir de copier-coller de sites internet ou documents déjà existant, complétés sur d’autres parties par une personne non informaticienne mais qui s’intéresse à l’autodéfense numérique et en propose des formations depuis quelques années."

"A security culture is a set of customs shared by a community whose members may be targeted by the government, designed to minimize risk. Having a security culture in place saves everyone the trouble of having to work out safety measures over and over from scratch, and can help offset paranoia and panic in stressful situations - hell, it might keep you out of prison, too."
Other languages
(de) Security Culture - Deutsche Übersetzung
"Eine Sicherheitskultur ist eine Reihe von Angewohnheiten, die von einer Gruppe geteilt wird. Eine Sicherheitskultur ist so entworfen, dass sie für Menschen, die vom Staat verfolgt werden könnten, das Risiko senkt geschnappt zu werden. Eine Sicherheitskultur zu haben, spart den Aufwand immer wieder bei Null anzufangen um Sicherheitsmaßnahmen auszuarbeiten. Sie kann helfen Paranoia entgegenzuwirken und in stressigen Situationen Panik zu vermeiden und sie kann euch Zeit im Knast ersparen."

(es) ¿Qué es la cultura de seguridad?
"La cultura de seguridad es un conjunto de costumbres compartidas por una comunidad, los miembros de la cual pueden ser objetivo del gobierno, diseñadas para minimizar el riesgo. Tener una cultura de la seguridad ahorra a todo el grupo la molestia de tener que elaborar medidas de seguridad continuamente desde cero, y puede ayudar a deshacerse de la paranoia y el pánico en situaciones estresantes - joder, podría incluso mantenerte fuera de prisión."
(fr) Cultures de la sécurité
"Une culture de la sécurité est une série d’habitudes, de coutumes partagées par une communauté dont les membres peuvent être impliqué·e·s dans des activités illégales, et dont la pratique minimise les risques encourus. Avoir mis en place une telle culture peut éviter aux membres du groupe de réinventer à chaque fois la roue en la matière, et contribue à limiter les sentiments de paranoïa et de panique dans des situations stressantes - ça peut aussi vous éviter d’aller en tôle."
(id) Apa Itu Budaya Keamanan?
"Budaya Keamanan (selanjutnya disebut Security Culture) adalah serangkaian tradisi yang dihidupi bersama oleh suatu komunitas yang anggotanya memiliki kemungkinan untuk dijadikan target oleh pemerintah dan kelompok fundamentalis, suatu tradisi yang didesain untuk meminimalisir resiko. Menerapkan security culture di dalam komunitas kita membuat kita dapat terhindar dari kerja-kerja menjenuhkan untuk menakar tingkat keamanan kita lagi dan lagi yang selalu saja dimulai dari awal. Budaya ini juga dapat membantu mengimbangi paranoia dan kepanikan di dalam situasi yang penuh tekanan - yoi men, budaya ini juga bisa jadi dapat membantumu terhindar dari lembabnya sel penjara."
(pt) O que é Cultura de Segurança?
"Uma cultura de segurança é um conjunto de hábitos compartilhados por uma comunidade cujos membros possam realizar atividades ilegais, cuja prática minimiza os riscos de tais atividades. Ter uma cultura de segurança poupa a todos o trabalho de ter que decidir medidas de segurança inúmeras vezes, desde o princípio, e pode ajudar a diminuir a paranoia e o pânico em situações de estresse — diabos, ela pode salvar você da prisão também."
