What we do
- Thinking hard about obscure attacks on anonymity such as clock correlation deanonymization attacks and develop countermeasures. See Dev/TimeSync.
- Add support for multiple anonymity networks to cater to different user bases.
- Invent mechanisms for rapid Debian packaging.
- genmkfile [archive] - easy and turbo packaging of scripts and config files
- Demonstrating how to hassle free write man pages.
- Example... (Using this for all related Whonix ™ packages.)
- Written in markdown.
- Just 3 lines of packaging required.

- Focus on the anonymity and privacy field, not getting into unimportant details. Understand issues regular users are having and create a better UX.
- Develop Concepts:
- General security interest, scrutiny, and connecting people. 
- Reporting issues at other projects, such as:
- The Tor Project
- Successfully communicate issues in the Tor ecosystem and do so whenever we find something. Some suggestions have been implemented and others accepted.

- Reported a number of security/privacy/anonymity issues some of them which could lead to deanonymization.
