Unileaks will accept restricted or censored material of political, ethical, diplomatic or historical significance which is in some way connected to higher education, an agency or government body working in partnership with an institution, e.g., a University.'
2. Our anonymous electronic drop box
Unileaks has an electronic drop box if you wish to provide original
material to our journalists.
Unileaks accepts a range of material, but we do not solicit it. If you are going to send in material it should be done as securely as possible.
Please review TOR which helps assist in improving online security:
2.1 Its easy to submit
Our drop box is easy to use but as yet provides no encryption
so if you’re not using a secure network we can’t be assured it’s not
going to be intercepted. We advise you to use the TOR Network
Details are below
There is currently no working dropbox, neither plaintext nor encrypted
Submitting documents to our journalists is protected by law in better democracies.
We never keep logs of who uses the drop box or where they are coming from.
You might also want to use the secure TOR network ([http:www.torproject.org/about/overview.html.en Tor] is a secure anonymous distributed network that provides maximum security.
Despite having no encryption whatsoever (apart from the Google Analytics
tracking web bug!) UniLeaks.org have already had some mainstream media
articles published e.g. in the UK Guardian / Observer on Sunday 12th
This mainstream media publicity has lead to website load infrastructure problems, typical of those experienced by WikiLeaks.org (not confirmed with Unileaks)
Update 6th December
Unileaks.org are improving their anonymity and security precautions.
They have stopped offering their advertised unencrypted electronic "dropbox"
Unileaks has had to suspend the use of it's drop box while we develop new security measures.
Although it has been claimed they used Google Analytics this was only built into the content management system running the site. Unileaks no longer use this system.
Unileaks.org have published a PGP Public encryption key.
You may post only to our post office box in Australia. We are working on networking alternatives around the world and are currently in contact with a similar organisation to make use of their network.
In Australia: PO Box 150, Brunswick East, VIC, 3057, AUSTRALIA.
To: "UL" or any name likely to evade postal censorship in your country.
