All of the GuardianProject in One Recovery-Flashable Zip

We could all use a little more security in our mobile technology. Between trojans and malware, traffic monitoring at work, and the man, everyone is trying to see what you’re doing pretty much all the time. There are applications available for desktop operating systems that make snooping less of a problem such as Tor, which allows users to browse the web with complete anonymity. On Android, there are applications available that provide similar protection such as the applications developed via the GuardianProject.

Started with the singular goal of increasing privacy and protection, the GuardianProject has developed a variety of applications that help make your day-to-day mobile device usage safer. Additionally, there are a number of applications that the GuardianProject supports, such as the K-9 email application that allows for email encryption.

Now, it is possible to install the entire suite of GuardianProject applications using a ClockworkMod flashable zip. Posted by XDA Senior Member x942, the flashable zip contains about a dozen applications that will help guard your privacy. The included apps are:

Orbot: TOR (Anonymous Web Browsing) for Android
Gibberbot: Secure Encrypted IM using Google Talk
ObscuraCam: Secure Camera that obscures faces
InTheClear: Data Wipe (“Poison Pill”) Wipes phone on command
Android Privacy Guard: Public Key Crypto (GPG) for Android
DroidWall: Firewall that uses IPTables to prevent data leaks and Network attacks.
FDroid: Alternative to Google Playstore. All apps are FOSS.
ORweb: Privacy oriented web browser that works automatically with Orbot (TOR). [ADDED: 08//19/2012] OSTel: Encrypted VOIP phone calls using ZRTP. The app is based on CSipSimple For more info go here to create a free acount go here. NOTE: This service & app are in public beta status. [ADDED: 08/20/2012] K-9 Mail: Open Source E-mail app that works with APG for sending encrypted E-mails. Has lots of powerful options. [ADDED: 08/21/2012] CaCertMan: Manage the list of Certificate Authorities on you phone. Let’s you revoke any CA’s you distrust. ROOT Needed. [ADDED: 08/21/2012]

Additionally, there is information on where to get applications to protect other things such as text messaging. If you’re looking to use your mobile device with a little more privacy and anonymity, head over to the original thread for more details.
