@eloquence my experience with washpo's use was awful in that they outsourced me to an intel community insider who wanted to make some money for his law firm and silence me by launching a qui tam with the government option to then get a gag order, rather than any of their own journalists. However the problem was not secure drop itself, but the organization misusing it... That being said, this seems fascinating...

@eloquence things that keep me awake at night include 's crappy based desktop client. While it uses a sqlcipher db, it stores the key used in the clear on the filesystem. That seems awfully forensic friendly. And they prefer aes256 with the originally mandated and now known defective 14 round key scheduler, rather than 28 rounds...

@tychosoft @eloquence What?! Ok, I think I’m gonna stick to the mobile app then.
