FOSDEM 2015

Reached milestones and ongoing development on Replicant

Abstract

Replicant was started as a pragmatic way to achieve software freedom on mobile devices, as a fully free version of Android. Over the years, support was added for a dozen of different mainstream devices. However, most of these are severely flawed when it comes to software freedom and privacy/security. Thus, it was decided to focus the development effort on a few specific devices that perform better than others from those perspectives, instead of trying to catch up with the latest mainstream devices.

Description

This talk will first cover what was accomplished by the Replicant project over the last few years and what milestones have been reached. This includes an overview of the work that was completed to support various devices, especially when it comes to writing free software replacements for proprietary components. Some of the most challenging examples will be highlighted and put in perspective as milestones for the project. In addition, some of the work on making the system better regarding privacy and security will be mentioned. Once the improvement of the situation is acknowledged, this talk will show how most of these devices are still fundamentally flawed, hence opening up two possible ways for the future of the project: adding support for more and more new devices and recent Android versions or focusing on a handful of devices that show real potential for being liberated. Hence, the second part of this presentation will introduce the recent efforts that were started to support devices that can take freedom to the next step. Some of these exciting devices will be presented in details, with a description of the journey to freeing them from the ground up!

Capitole du Libre 2014

Replicant: appareils mobiles et logiciel libre

Abstract

Les appareils mobiles, tels que les téléphones portables ou tablettes sont de plus en plus présent dans notre usage del'informatique et sont particulièrement sujets aux questions de liberté et de vie privée/sécurité. Étant de véritables ordinateurs, il est aisé d'y exécuter du logiciel libre, même si la situation est loin d'être parfaite.

Description

Cet exposé présentera Replicant dans le cadre de l'initiative visant à libérer les appareils mobiles. En premier lieu, les problèmes majeurs liés à la liberté sur ces appareils seront abordés, ainsi que différentes considérations à propos de la sécurité de ces appareils et des communications qu'ils peuvent effectuer, d'un scénario idéal à la réalité d'aujourd'hui. Par la suite, la question des composants propriétaires requis pour de nombreuses versions communautaires d'Android sera abordée, ainsi que les réponses qu'apporte Replicant à ces problèmes. Plusieurs versions communautaires d'Android seront mentionnées, de même que d'autres systèmes tels que Firefox OS ou Ubuntu Touch. Un aperçu de ce-qui a été accompli au sein du projet Replicant au fil des années sera présenté, de même que les difficultés que nous avons pu rencontrer récemment et l'état actuel du projet.
