SecureDrop is an open-source whistleblower submission system that media organizations can use to securely accept documents from and communicate with anonymous sources. It was originally created by the late Aaron Swartz and is currently managed by Freedom of the Press Foundation.
It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and researchers, scientists and educators and encourages people to participate through an online platform. SecureDrop is local, national, transnational and global in orientation and concerned with participation and democracy, politics and representation. The project is ongoing.
