Tor Project. What do you think? What would you add? How are you sharing
information on these issues with your colleagues/friends/allies/

Ten Principles for User Protection

1. Do not rely on the law to protect systems or users.

2. Prepare policy commentary for quick response to crisis.

3. Only keep the user data that you currently need.

4. Give users full control over their data.

5. Allow pseudonymity and anonymity.

6. Encrypt data in transit and at rest.

7. Invest in cryptographic R&D to replace non-cryptographic systems.

8. Eliminate single points of security failure, even against coercion.

9. Favor open source and enable user freedom.

report abuse.
