Openleaks launches to rival Wikileaks

February 1, 2011

A new website called Openleaks is beening launched to rival Wikileaks, created by the former deputy head of Wikileaks, Daniel Domscheit-Berg.

Domscheit-Berg left Wikileaks due to a misunderstanding with Julian Assange.

Other former aids of Julian Assange are also helping the project. The group left Wikileaks in order to be a neutral conduit, remaining transparent.

The sites launched was announced at the world economic forum in Davos, and is working with various media partners in order to provide the public with another conduit to pass on information that Domscheit-Berg feels is in the public interest.

In a documentary with SVT, a Swedish broadcaster, Domscheit-Berg gave a little in tell into

“Openleaks is a technology project that is aiming to be a service provider for third parties that want to be able to accept material from anonymous sources, without a political agenda except for the dissemination of information to the media.”

The Openleaks website is officially opening early next year. The site is currently online in alpha mode with limited participation. It will move into beta mode once its security is independently audited, to allow users to secure their anonymity.

Domscheit-Berg has also been involved with a German hacker group called Chaos Computer Club.
