Washington Post protects sources with security based on Tor browser

The Washington Post is making it easier for whistle blowers, or anyone else with a secret, to spill the beans for the public good.

SecureDrop gives detailed instructions on how to communicate with the Post in a way that avoids detection. It’s all above-board, but uses methods most people would never think of on their own.

It’s based on the Tor browser bundle and makes recommendations such as use of the Tails operating system.

With any luck, more people will come forward and turn the tables on those who use the Internet to spy on us.
