[liberationtech] Safer submission of content to news organizations

Hi Martyn,

As mentioned before, GlobaLeaks might be what you are looking for.

The basic idea if you want to enforce identification is to use the
anonymous and encrypted submission channel, and then require
identification on top/separately. Also, especially after looking at the
AP guidelines: They don't reject all anonymous submissions, so what you
actually might want is optional identification (in case the material is,
say for AP, not "information" and "reliable" enough).

Out of my head, one example would be: Message us on some other platform
where you built up reputation or had to be identified (depending on the
actual definition of identity for the news org!).

1. anonymous submission platform -> after submission, gives you a random

2. to reveal your identity, you can then send that string separately to
the newspaper on a site that required identification, eg. on eBay,
Paypal etc

3. only if the number is received, the submission is accepted
