Project Rangzen was supported by a $1,500,000 grant from the US department of state, the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, under the Internet Freedom program.
More background information about the project:
The solutions we develop will enable free communication, independent of government or corporate-controlled infrastructure, while providing strong anonymity guarantees.
To better understand the challenge and our approach – here’s a short introduction.
At the core of this work, is our recent study – Rangzen, on which we’ll build the remaining elements for a widely deployable solution. Some of these elements pose fascinating research challenges, while others call for skillful integration of existing solutions.
Our work is freely available as open-source encouraging peer review and transparency.
We work in tight collaboration with the TIER group and the Data and Democracy Initiative (DDI).
- Rangzen is the Tibetan word for Freedom/Liberty/Independence.
