Anybody knows of an implementation for the writeprinting technique?
I was actually looking for the same last month, but couldn't find one, so interested as well.
Yes, I actually have purchased such services before. Funny you should mention it this instance.
Where did you buy it from, if I may ask?
A friend of mine who works in signals intelligence had it done for me. Writeprint and similar techniques (as demonstrated at DefCon 15) are often employed to identify anonymous authors, such as dissident blog writers in China.
Yes Steve, and I think it is an extremely effective and hard to circumvent way of identifying people.
Do you know of any software able to do something like this?
Yes, it is an online software that is capable of taking any of 12 or so languages, and stripping out all coherency and style that could be used for writeprint. It is called Google Translate.
Sorry, but I don't get how I can use Google Translate for writeprinting. Any hint?
You can use things like Google Translate to defend against writeprinting.
It was actually a joke on Google, but it would seem that it could be used for defending against writeprint.
Separate names with a comma.
