I'm not looking for a job. I'm going to change the world. The only question is, who wants to do it with me?

comment When do honest people need privacy or anonymity? (e.g. they have nothing to hide)
Very useful. So someone would need validation of being a member of the opposing herd, and anonymity for expression leniency or tolerance for the opposing party.

Do you have any specific scenarios where anonymity could be useful to gain the privacy you're describing?

One thing to add - re: You own the information about yourself ... in the UK, the government's department of health owns all the medical records of its people. The United States is distinctly different in this regard.

These are great.. do you know of anytime anonymity can be used as a means to gain this privacy?

I acknowledge and like the fact you say that anonymity is a means to achieve privacy. I'd like to find more scenarios in which anonymity is needed to achieve that privacy

Seems like there is some overlap with controlling dissemination, but I like the categorisation for needing privacy. If only I could do the same for anonymity

@Mehrdad - I think there is a human psyche need for privacy and possibly anonymity. Hopefully this question will help me find them. If rooted in because I'm a human and humans need privacy/anonymity, then that might give more weight than because I wish so

Any links supporting the claim that the power of crime syndicates match or exceed those of law enforcement would be interesting and useful.

Thank you for highlighting the assumption that is made. There are so many things taken for granted that I'm trying to bring to people's attention.

@NeilMcGuigan I'm just looking for "when" a person would need anonymity or privacy... Haven't thought through "how"

comment Is ECDH for SEC P-384 and P-521 broken in Windows 10?
As a workaround, see if BouncyCastle can issue the correct output. If I don't see answer in a few days, I'll open a Premier / EA case w MSFT.

comment Does Microsoft Edge (Spartan) share Cookies, Cache, Passwords, or TLS Certificates with Internet Explorer?
@puzzlepalace agreed. I think it's possible that different certificate and chain validation exists in Spartian as well (OCSP/CRL, AIA, etc), or TLS version support ... that's why I tossed in TLS in there.

@user1574054 ISO images found on msdn.microsoft.com are for development and are safe. ISO images found on licensing.microsoft.com are for production and are safe. Both are downloaded over HTTPS.

comment How do I verify someone's identity if the only method of contact is their email address?
Note that payments (distributions including gifts) over a certain amount may need to be filed with a government authority. - I'm not a lawyer, check with local laws first

You say If it fell into their hands ... what is it? a payment would put lives at risk?

I agree with your desire to have both anonymity and accountability (or masked identity), and that is a technology I'm publishing at VAL-ID.com. I want to understand your usage more so I can be of service. Are you bartering goods and services? Are you funding an anonymous kickstarter of sorts?
