EFF Debuts the Coders' Rights Project to Protect Computer Security Researchers

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) rolled out the Coders’ Rights Project “to connect the work of security research with the fundamental rights of its practitioners throughout the Americas. The project seeks to support the right of free expression that lies at the heart of researchers’ creations and use of computer code to examine computer systems, and relay their discoveries among their peers and to the wider public.” EFF is seeking to protect computer security researchers who use their talents to help the public instead of hacking for nefarious reasons.

In conjunction with the project, EFF published “Protecting Security Researchers’ Rights in the Americas,” which highlights the human rights standards that lawmakers, judges, and the IACHR (Inter-American Commission on Human Rights) “should use to protect the fundamental rights of security researchers.”
