Our goal is to create accessible technology and improve the skill set needed for defending human rights and freedoms in the digital age. The eQualit.ie team has developed tools such as Corroborator (used for tracking rights violations in Syria), the Deflect and Distributed Deflect projects (tools used to protect sites against denial of service and other attacks) and circumvention and encryption tools. The team is geographically dispersed but the core members are based in Montréal, Quebec, Canada.
