Folks:

A major United States national security initiative, tasked with
inventing advanced strategies which "change the terrain" in order to
permanently give defenders an advantage over attackers, has praised
Tahoe-LAFS:

"Systems like Tahoe are making these methods immediately usable for
securely and availably storing files at rest; we propose that the
methods be further reviewed, written up, and strongly evangelized as
best practices in both government and industry." —from Report on
National Cyber Leap Year Summit 2009

Yeah!! It feels great to get some official recognition of what this
little loosely-organized Free Software project is doing.

I wrote up more context and comments and (of course) pleas for help on my blog:

(Which, of course, is a CloudApp served up from a Tahoe-LAFS grid. :-))
