Jul 24, 2000, 15:48 (0 Talkback[s])

"Zero-Knowledge Systems, the leading developer of privacy solutions for consumers and companies, will release its first source code today. Mike Shaver, Zero-Knowledge's Chief Software Officer, last week previewed the Linux client of the company's award-winning privacy software, Freedom at the Ottawa Linux Symposium."

"In this first source release, Zero-Knowledge will release the source code of the Freedom Linux kernel interface. Source code will be available for download from the Zero-Knowledge website at http://opensource.zeroknowledge.com/. This interface contains the code that allows Freedom to intercept all incoming and outgoing data from a computer and can be useful for implementing secure networking solutions for Linux. In accordance with the company's stated commitment to open source, additional source code to the Freedom client and server will be made available in the coming months." "In response to the strong demand for our code and in accordance with our commitment to security through openness, we are excited to preview the Linux client and embark on the first step toward releasing the source code," said Shaver, who previously headed developer relations and open source evangelism for mozilla.org, the group organizing development of the open source Mozilla browser. "Source availability is an important part of any credible privacy solution, and by releasing source code Zero-Knowledge further demonstrates that Freedom is the best solution available."
