Our Christmas message for troublemakers: how to do anonymity in the real world

On the 5th of December I gave a talk at a journalists’ conference on what tradecraft means in the post-Snowden world. How can a journalist, or for that matter an MP or an academic, protect a whistleblower from being identified even when MI5 and GCHQ start trying to figure out who in Whitehall you’ve been talking to? The video of my talk is now online here. There is also a TV interview I did later, which can be found here, while the other conference talks are here.

Enjoy!

  1. Am I right in assuming, based on your video, that you would advise publications like the Guardian to upgrade their website to https to provide an inconspicuous way for sources to contact them, rather that running a dedicated system like SecureDrop?
