Project: Tor Project
Winner: Andrew Lewman and Karen Reilly of Tor
Summary: With world press freedom in decline for the past decade, journalists and their sources are often threatened by governments, criminal organizations and others who monitor their mobile and online communication to see who is talking to the press. To help protect reporters and their sources, the Tor Project will use its vast network of volunteers to create a toolkit for journalists. The kit will include Tor Project’s existing secure web browser and anonymous upload utility, along new tools and training videos.
