About Least Authority
Least Authority was formed in 2011 to provide freedom-compatible storage. We are a small team who believe that freedom matters in storage technology. You can take advantage of online services while retaining control over your own data. We're here to make it easy.
We are building an affordable, ethical, usable, and lasting data storage solution. We believe this requires free and open source software, client-side cryptography, user-friendly interfaces, and a sustainable economic model.
Why do we do what we do? To give billions of humans a real alternative for control over their own data. If someone doesn't do this, then soon almost everyone will be beholden to a few large organizations that control all of their information.
Zooko Wilcox-O'Hearn has more than 15 years of experience in secure distributed systems, free and open source software, and startups. He is known for his work on DigiCash, Mojo Nation, ZRTP, and more. He is one of the co-founders of the LAFS project. He started Least Authority Enterprises because he wanted a convenient and safe way to store his files in the cloud.
Zancas is curious about how things work, so he has a problem with black boxes — he's constantly trying to open them up and see what's inside. He cares deeply about freedom and the continued advancement of human knowledge, and is excited to be part of Least Authority Enterprises.
Nathan's passion is open, secure technologies that empower users. He has 9 years of experience in software development, security auditing, and performance analysis. He contributes to a variety of free and open source projects, including LAFS (where he found its first security flaw), Twisted, OTR, Tor, Python packaging, and more. He believes the two most important challenges to empowering user security are usability and economic incentives; he's excited about the potential for Least Authority to address these.
