Cryptomator – Free Client-Side Encryption for Your Cloud Files
https://cryptomator.org/

Create vaults in your Dropbox, Google Drive or wherever you like. Assign a passphrase and you’re ready to go. Store your sensitive data on the virtual drive provided by Cryptomator. Wasn’t that easy? Cryptomator encrypts everything you put into the drive on-the-fly. Your cloud is now secure. Cryptomator provides transparent, client-side encryption for your cloud. Protect your documents from unauthorized access. Cryptomator is free and open source software, so you can rest assured there are no backdoors. With Cryptomator you don’t have to deal with accounts, key management, cloud access grants or cipher configurations. Just choose a password and you’re ready to go. You don’t even need to specify what cloud you use. Cryptomator encrypts files and doesn’t care where you store them. This makes it a lightweight application, which we believe is a huge benefit for reliability. Complexity would kill security. Cryptomator is a so-called transparent encryption utility. This means that you don’t have to learn new workflows. Just work with your files as you’re used to. Cryptomator encrypts file contents and names using AES. Your passphrase is protected against bruteforcing attempts using scrypt. Directory structures and file sizes get obfuscated. The only thing which cannot be encrypted without breaking your cloud synchronization is the modification date of your files. Cryptomator is a free and open source software licensed under the MIT / X Consortium License. This allows anyone to check their code. It is impossible to introduce backdoors for third parties. Also they cannot hide vulnerabilities. And the best thing is: There is no need to trust them, as you can control them! Vendor lock-ins are impossible. Even if they decided to stop development: The source code is already cloned by hundreds of other developers. As you don’t need an account, you will never stand in front of locked doors.

http://www.fas.org/irp/doddir/dod/jp1_02.pdf

Via Steven Aftergood – FAS: “The term “climate change” was included for the first time in the latest revision of the Department of Defense Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms (Joint Publication 1-02), published last week. Climate change is officially defined by DoD as “Variations in average weather conditions that persist over multiple decades or longer that encompass increases and decreases in temperature, shifts in precipitation, and changing risk of certain types of severe weather events.” The new entry in the DoD Dictionary reflects a growing awareness of the actual and potential impacts of climate change on military operations.” Thanks to Sabrina at BeSpacific for this find.

It is hard to know just how much larger the deep web is because the internet is always changing. There are some special free search engines that can be used to find some of this content.
