0xche

0xche is a horizontal group of hackers who through offensive security aims to strengthen the security systems of activist and civil society organizations in Latin America.

0xche's identity combines a commitment to social transformation with solid technical capacity.

With the support of OTF, 0xche is doing research to understand the landscape of civil society organizations in Latin America in terms of information security. As we all know, digital security is critical for activist organizations, and the lack of a minimum viable secure infrastructure translates into surveillance, leaks of private communications, loss of information and censorship. All of these threats directly affect their effectiveness and impact on their local communities. The goal of this research is to make a contribution to civil society organizations in Latin America by mapping the common vulnerabilities in these systems, understand the patterns in their attack surface, and once they are identified, to share good security practices to render innocuous the most frequent IT threats and attacks. 

This project is led by a team of technologists in the human rights and civil society space in Latin America and through the project they will carry out a research to understand the landscape of our Latin America in terms of information security practices in place among selected NGOs by doing grounded fieldwork to understand the common vulnerabilities in their systems and the patterns in their attack surface.
