The Daylighting Society works on a number of apps, frameworks, and research projects. These endeavors are intended for a variety of audiences, from the general public to other developers to academic researchers. An overview of each active project is below.
Where are the Eyes is a program for detecting and mapping surveillance cameras. It reveals locations of heavy and light surveillance, allowing the public to protect their privacy, and activists to schedule events based on available surveillance.
SpeakFree is a tool for jamming audio recording of conversations, and helping users keep their privacy in the physical world.
TorHost allows users to trivially share files over the Tor anonymity network. This program is a minimalist alternative to OnionShare.
When journalists, activists, or other human citizens attend protests they run a risk of being arrested or injured. This tool allows them to set an alarm, and notify friends, family, lawyers, or coworkers if they do not return home on time.
Tempest Shield attempts to make your computer's EM signature as unreadable as possible, by running random cryptographic operations during important events.
The Paillier Cryptosystem is an unusual type of cryptography that allows messages to be added together while encrypted, and can verify that a message comes from an acceptable set without decrypting it.
