Hi all, 

I was contacted by tacticaltech about the new section on howtos for
security under GNU/Linux, see the message below. I already sent them
some feedback about it (Veracrypt not being Free Software, and that they
should hightlight chromium or irdium instead of Chrome and Opera as
alternatives). If you also have feedback they told me you can directly
sent it to security at (in case you want encrypt, they sent
me the attached public key for that). 

All the best,
