The barbarians aren't at the gates. They're inside. This is the first full account of the cypherpunks who sim to free the world's information, from theForbesreporter whose work has traced their history and future.What is the machine that kills secrets?WikiLeaks brought to light a new form of whistleblowing, using powerful cryptographic code to hide leakers’ identities while they spill the private data of government agencies and corporations. But that technology has been evolving for decades in the hands of hackers and radical activists, from the libertarian enclaves of Northern California to Berlin to the Balkans. And the secret-killing machine continues to evolve beyond WikiLeaks, as a movement of hacktivists aims to obliterate the world’s institutional secrecy.This is the story of the code and the characters—idealists, anarchists, extremists—who are transforming the next generation’s notion of what activism can be.With unrivaled access to such major players as Julian Assange, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, and WikiLeaks’ shadowy engineer known as the Architect, never before interviewed, reporter Andy Greenberg unveils the world of politically-motivated hackers—who they are and how they operate.

Andy Greenberg has covered cyber security and privacy for Forbes since 2007. Based in New York, Greenberg's reporting has taken him from an autonomous car race in the California desert to Beijing, where he first cut his teeth as a freelance journalist in 2004. Most recently, Greenberg's travels have taken him to Iceland and London, where he produced the world's first cover story on WikiLeaks' Julian Assange.
