AdLeaks is a research project and not a complete system. AdLeaks provides a submission frontend but it lacks the backend necessary to securely manage and distribute received disclosures. We hope to collaborate with other projects towards building a complete system.
We distribute the code you need to instrument your browser along with our ads. There is no need to download it. You only need a small bootstrapper script which extracts the code from your browser's cache or local storage. The script also verifies and installs the software for you. It is critical for your safety that you verify that the script you use is authentic, prior to using it! The best approach is to compare bootstrapper scripts taken from multiple sources. We publish authentic scripts at the following sources:
The QR code below encodes an old version of our bootstrapper script that we used for testing. For now, the QR code is just for demonstration. We will replace it with the real thing once our research system comes online.
If you operate a website and you would like to support the AdLeaks system during its testing phase then please stay tuned or contact us. We will shortly provide a URL that we ask you to include as an iframe in as many web pages as is practical.
The AdLeaks prototype is under continuous development. We publish updates to our source code at our GitHub repository. Feel free to check out the source code if you are curious about the implementation details or if you would like to contribute.
