Julian Assange To Create New Crypto System

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is creating a new crypto system.

According to H-Online, Assange is working on a certificate-based crypto system that signs documents. "Assange seems to envision WikiLeaks as a kind of root authority that releases new keys, potentially using a custom crypto technique." This would allow whistle blower data contributed to WikiLeaks to escape government review.

H-Online also reports that "Assange is planning to use non-US technology because he thinks that, in the US, everything will be undermined by the CIA. The WikiLeaks founder regards US scientists with disdain: they are a disgrace to their country and too mentally bankrupt to assume moral leadership roles in movements such as Occupy, said Assange."
