I apologize for the delay and for the fact that I didn’t yet give to Enough the attention it’s worth of. I’m in some deep water these days and probably for some weeks to come.
Over the last couple of years I’ve been trying to achieve something very similar to Enough (at least from the user’s stand point). I called it Lobster network.
At the beginning I used Digital Ocean droplets managed via debops/ansible but then I realized it would be too easy to dump the droplets ram which makes encryption useless. So I moved my prototype to bare-metal encrypted server (Hetzner) still managed via debops/ansible running Proxmox and serving vms providing a very similar scenario to DO’s one.
My prototype is not at production level (I have difficulties with some services) but it’s good enough to work with the other project that I called Uopo: a stripped down LineageOs running on OnePlus devices meant to provide a bit more privacy to the user.
I started Lobster because I felt outraged after reading E.S. revelations etc. It happened automatically and I couldn’t stop it. Judging from the name it seems like Enough was started in a similar way.
You can imagine how happy I was when @nqb told me about Enough especially when I realized that Enough is far more mature and it includes also SecureDrop.
Even the list of software you have chosen matches almost entirely my own (but you provide more)
Now, I’ve a few questions about Enough, OpenStack and OVH. Please consider my absolute ignorance regarding all of them.
have you ever considered to run Enough on bare-metal servers with vms instead of using OpenStack?
if 1 == true, what were the reasons for dropping it?
would it make sense to have an Enough clone (like Lobster) which runs on more old-school bare-metal servers?
I spinned off another topic here which is somehow connected to this one
