About SecureComp

A Brief History of SecureComp.Org

The SecureComp community was founded by Randy Welborn and Ridge Cook after they, and others, came to a conclusion. This conclusion was that a forum for open discussion about politics and privacy/security issues of both a personal and technical nature was needed. This is a place that you can ask and say anything you want.

You will always get a friendly and informative response about technical issues in the SecureComp group. You may get involved in some rough'n'tumble political discussions in TheTable but that is your choice. If you need some good advice about crypto and related matters then WebOfTrust is for you. Need some off-topic light relief? Head for the SpareRoom but beware if you have a cat allergy.

Is the old version of the site still available?

Yes, it is. As the original was Randy's handiwork it has now been archived for posterity
