“SecureDrop is an open-source whistleblower submission system managed by Freedom of the Press Foundation that media organizations use to securely accept documents from anonymous sources. It was originally coded by the late Aaron Swartz.”

SecureDrop is dependent on the Tor project, meaning sources who submit documents and journalists who download these documents must connect to the SecureDrop website using the Tor network.

For more information on this project visit PressFreedomFoundation. Code can be found on GitHub.
