I believe this project is raising the standard of trust online because we need to be able to trust critical software. Professional auditing of opensource security software such as OpenVPN, OpenSSL, VeraCrypt, and OTR is important. Sadly, very few projects are able to do it because of limited time and resources. This project will hire firms and give direct funding to improve free software. It was previously endorsed by OpenVPN and VeraCrypt, but did not receive enough funding to complete their kickstarter effort.
