Globaleaks 0.2 Alpha is out.

Globaleaks is an open source project aimed at creating a worldwide, anonymous, censorship-resistant, distributed whistle-blowing platform. It enables organizations interested in running whistle-blowing initiatives to setup their own safe zone, where whistle-blowers and recipients can exchange data.

2 Years ago I helped out with the development of Globaleaks 0.1. And although I am not active anymore, I really support the initiative behind it. Now with the HERMES Center for Transparency and Digital Human Rights backing it up, it has grown a lot and shaped up to be a very organized and thought through project.

TL;DR:

  • Full rewrite
  • More flexible and extensible
  • Linux ready-made system and network hardened installation
  • Written in python using twisted
  • New Frontend

Try it out:

Try out the demo. It is pretty straight forward.

Help out:

As young project, Globaleaks can use some help fixing bugs. Just head to the wiki and read through it. It is pretty straight forward, and explains the modules, security concepts and set up instructions.

Globaleaks already has Debian and Ubuntu ready packages. An easy way to help out is to set up a  PPA for us on Launchpad. :D
