What is IrpiLeaks?
Thanks to Hermes Center for Transparency and Digital Human Rights, IRPI created a platform called IrpiLeaks in order to allow a source that prefers to stay anonymous or that requires a certain level of security for the content of the information he/she owns to submit ‘sensitive’ information in a secure way, in regards with data trasmission and management. IrpiLeaks using GlobaLeaks software permits exactly this.
By accessing IrpiLeaks you will be redirected to the submission platform from which you can send anonymously to IRPI’s members the information and documents you own on a case.
The entire submission system is based on the use of Tor, which is already integrated in the platform. Tor is considered the best technology for digital anonymity available to Internet users. It is constantly revised by academics and IT security experts. Tor guarantees that no personal traces remains on IrpiLeaks. When you use Tor to submit information, your identity and your data are protected by those who are eventually monitoring the traffic on the web.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to be sure 100% that someone in the future won’t find some traces that will lead to your leak or having your computer monitored by someone who could track your movements on the web or the documents you submitted. In order to reduce to the minimum these risks it is advisable to access the platform using Tor in the first place.
We also strongly recommend that you read our Data management and editorial policies before submitting a tip.
What is the Tor Browser?
Tor Browser is a software built in order to provide people with the possibility to navigate the Web anonymously.

What is the .ONION domain?
.ONION domains are secure addresses which can can only be accessed through the Tor Browser. This step is necessary so that we can be sure that any potential sources will be using the Internet anonymously while submitting documents. All .ONION websites have a randomly generated address. If you are not sure about accessing .ONION websites, readthis article in the Wikipedia.
