Arka Kapı is a hackers’ magazine that began its journey in Turkey. ‘Arka Kapı’ stands for back door. We’re publishing our fourth issue in Turkey as we introduce the first English issue to you. The internet today hosts the core components of personal freedom: freedom of speech,  freedom of trade, and freedom of self-advocacy. That is, as long as you are aware of it and protect it. An average internet user can make use of this freedom through various free tools on the internet. There are multiple running headlines to protect against this issue. A united stand against mass surveillance and censorship, guarding the global net neutrality. In Turkey, we became a hacker magazine which passed on tools and techniques to the readers, but we also stood for the benefits of the information revolution that strengthened human rights. We’re hoping to do the same and more on our global issues.  As an independent magazine, we need your support to reach our goals! The spotlight for our first issue is “Anonymity.” The mass surveillance we’re going through seems very much like a chapter from the Orwellian dystopia except here everything we do is watched through our smartphones and wearable technology. Most of you might think that you’ve got nothing to hide. However, protecting our privacy from Big Brother has a broader scope than the individual scale, as we saw in the very recent event that struck millions through Cambridge Analytica. The only antidote against this mass surveillance is the correct and conscious implication of anonymity. In this issue we have:
  • A detailed article on what you sign in the user agreements when you’re making an account. The privacy you give away to use the free programs everyone uses is elaborately explained.

  • An interview with the malware researcher Amanda Rousseau. She gave us some insights on being a woman in a male-dominated field.

  • An introduction to cryptology, and an article that discusses steganography.

  • The liberating technology, blockchain.

  • The vulnerabilities of Bluetooth and the old and new methods that exploit these.

  • A step-by-step guide to anonymizing your internet browsing from your router using Tor.

  • A detailed explanation of how to set up DNS tunneling.

  • A technical guide to setting up your own VPN.

  • And more!

We are an open-for-all magazine, and we’re accepting your papers and articles for our following issues. We’re also open to all sorts of constructive criticisms and opinions. As Snowden says, ‘Let’s take back the internet!’ Special thanks to Netsparker Ltd. for bringing our first issue alive. You can read our magazine at us at
