Greetings all --
Hope you're all well! Just a reminder to sign up for the Yale conference on
-- it would be truly lovely to see many of you there.
The Information Society Project and the Knight Law and Media Program invite
*Anonymous and Secure Communications *
*for Reporters and Sources*
*Thursday, November 29*
*Information & Registration at
Reporters often find it necessary to protect the identities of their
sources. In the past, that secrecy was easier to achieve.
Now, although digital technologies provide fast, convenient
communicationsbetween reporters and sources, they also facilitate
greater surveillance of
those communications. If source confidentiality remains crucial to
journalism, then reporters have a duty to take better precautions. But what
measures are available, which ones are being used, and which ones are
actually effective? Do anonymizing tools fulfill the promise of secure
communications, or do they endanger users by creating false confidence?
This conference will bring together journalists and technologists to
discuss the security needs of journalism; current practices among
reporters; the merits and pitfalls of the available technology; and what
more can—or should—be done to protect communications of this nature.
