Today The New Yorker
, a service that allows sources to share information with TNY journalists securely and anonymously. As explained in this infographic
, Strongbox relies on the Tor network, a dedicated server, PGP encryption, VPNs, and multiple laptops and thumb drives to prevent files from being intercepted or traced. The codebase
, which is open source, was designed by the late Aaron Swartz (Previously
). Kevin Poulsen, one of the organizers of the project, chronicles
how Swartz developed the code and how the project managed to carry on after his death. TNY hopes
that Strongbox will help the magazine continue its long tradition of investigative journalism.

The end of all other anonymous proxies?
The only disadvantage I found - it's one-time login, if you disconnect, next time you'll have to get another user/pass pair. But vpnsecurity.org is charging $40 monthly...
P.S. Correct link is https://vpn.google.com/getpass/ but I couldn't use https in URL field.
