FPF launches crowd-funding campaign to support encryption tools for journalists

Freedom of the Press Foundation (FPF) has launched a crowd-funding campaign to support Open Source encryption tools for journalists.

The Freedom of the Press Foundation is “dedicated to helping support and defend public-interest journalism focused on exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in government.”

It is also responsible for maintaining SecureDrop, a whistleblower submission system designed in part by the late Aaron Swartz. (See SecureDrop, SafeSource and Strongbox: Different names, same app.)

The goal of the campaign is to raise funds that will go towards supporting the development of “open-source encryption tools that can better protect the communications of journalists and sources.” Funds may be donated to support the following projects: LEAP Encryption Access Project, Open WhisperSystems, Tails, and the Tor Project. All donations are tax-deductible.
