CryptKey is a large, ambitious project. We need a lot of help. We are a dissentient, technical, and human rights initiative, a community, and a focal point for privacy ethics and freedom of expression movements worldwide. The more broadly based the participation, the stronger we are and greater the likely hood we will achieve our goals.
