Welcome to the cypherpunks archive at Here you can find links to PGP, remailers, rants, various crypto-tools, newspaper clippings, and a good deal of other things.

Keep in mind that because soda isn't running httpd files are being accessed by anonymous ftp. Soda has a 10 user limit on anonymous ftp so sometimes this archive may be unavailable.

Export Warning

Files which are illegal to export will be marked NOT FOR EXPORT. If you transfer these outside of the US + Canada you will be in violation of ITAR. Using this archive is consent to abide by these regulations.


Here are a few matters of upload ettiquette for the ftp site.

  1. Upload stuff for cypherpunks to /pub/cypherpunks/incoming and not to the general /pub/incoming directory. I am more able to adequately handle files there. (I can't erase in the other directory.)
  2. Whenever you upload something, also upload a short description of what it is you are uploading. I've had mystery files there in the past that have been neglected for long periods, since I don't know what they are and I've got plenty of other stuff to do with the archive.
  3. Send mail telling me what you've put up. If you don't tell me, I may not notice.
  4. Don't bother uploading programs that don't have source code. The mission of the archive site is education. Software distribution is not a purpose, and software without source does not satisfy the educational criterion.
