Whoever recently showed us the secret documents: Do get in touch

You know who you are, but we don't

We here at The Register recently got the chance to have a look at what appeared to be some most interesting confidential information, from within a large aerospace and defence contractor.

We're most grateful for this. However the way the information came to us, combined with the circumstances of the case, is going to make it difficult for us to proceed with the story without being able to communicate with our source.

We're hoping that he or she is reading this. We'd like to say: please get in touch, using whatever channel may suit: our contact details are here (be aware we've just moved offices). However, given the way the world is today, we'd strongly recommend encrypting your message. You seem like the type who'd be able to manage this without any difficulty. Rest assured we will be decrypting it offline in a secure manner, and the message will not then be uploaded to a popular cloud service, webmailed to someone's mobe etc. We will not reveal your identity without your consent.

And if anyone else with some information that ought to see the light of day happens to be reading this, the same goes for you too.

Our public key can be found below (or here). ®
