In our democracy a trade-off between checks and balances is mandatory. To play the role of balances, it is necessary to have information that is often only obtainable through channels that ensure the anonymity of the source. Here we present a work in progress of a system that provides anonymity to sources in a open and auditable system, oriented to audit systems of critical infrastructure and built on our previous work.
