Today is Press Freedom Day! πŸ’ͺ To support Press Freedom and to fight for our Rights to Privacy and Freedom of Speech, we are launching Secure Connect – an open source encrypted contact form. Secure Connect is free for news sites so that whistleblowers can get in touch with journalists securely. βœŠπŸ˜ƒπŸ‘‡

@Tutanota say, whatbis exactly the difference between secure connect and secure drop?

@blacklight447 We built Secure Connect based on Tutanota, it's end-to-end encrypted and you don't need to install your own server. πŸ˜‰

@Tutanota Will it soon be reachable via a v3 onion to? Seems like an important bonus for a whistleblowers.

@blacklight447 That's a good idea, thanks for your feedback. We'll research options for this. On the other hand, news sites could simply not track the IPs of their website visitors, that's what we do:

@Tutanota well its not only about your IP protection, a country controlled certificate authority could be forced to forge a false https certificate, they can also be hacked to do this, search up the case of Diginotar and Iran as an example for this. And trick the user into thinking they connected securely. With an .onion, this is not possible. If the .onion is correct, the user can be assured that they connected to the right site, and the connection has not been tampered with.
