Since then, Email Self-Defense has been translated into ten languages, and our metrics show that tens of thousands of people have used it.
If you've been putting off setting up encryption, or know someone
who might like your help setting it up, this anniversary is a great
occasion to do it! It only takes about half an hour with the Email
Even if you have nothing to hide, using encryption helps protect the
privacy of people you communicate with and makes it harder for
surveillance systems to isolate messages sent by those that do need
protection, like whistleblowers and activists. By encrypting more of
the traffic on the net, we give the surveillance systems more opaque
information to sift through.
But the goal of Email Self-Defense is more than just helping people
protect their information. It's also about highlighting the crucial
role of free software in privacy and security, which has not received
the attention it deserves in the media coverage of surveillance
reform. No matter what laws governments are eventually able to pass to
regulate surveillance programs, access to the source code of the
computer systems we are using is crucial if we are to have a
fighting chance of understanding and controlling what happens to our
Encryption is a critical first step, but to effectively resist bulk
surveillance, we also need to build new, decentralized Web systems and
work for political change. The FSF most recently joined a coalition to
resist efforts to require mandatory backdoors in encryption
and we maintain a surveillance
action area on
fsf.org. Our founder, Richard Stallman, also describes guidelines for
in some detail on gnu.org.
We're excited to have an intern, Adam Leibson, joining us for the
summer to work on encryption- and surveillance-related campaigns. Stay
tuned for publications about his work. In the meantime, have fun
