Cryptome is a web site set up by New York architect John Young, who has been described as "the original WikiLeaker".
Cryptome welcomes documents for publication that are prohibited by governments worldwide, in particular material on freedom of expression, privacy, cryptology, dual-use technologies, national security, intelligence, and secret governance -- open, secret and classified documents -- but not limited to those. Documents are removed from this site only by order served directly by a US court having jurisdiction. No court order has ever been served; any order served will be published here -- or elsewhere if gagged by order. Bluffs will be published if comical but otherwise ignored.
The site has been running since 1996. At the time, Young was a participant on the cypherpunks mailing list.
Young claims that Cryptome does not publish really dangerous secrets:
Only low-grade stuff like what WikiLeaks does, but they just exaggerate it.
