Become a sponsor to PeculiarVentures

Peculiar Ventures open source work was born when we saw "The Most Dangerous Code in the World" paper, and recognized that people commonly misunderstand the complexity and nuance of authentication systems, public key infrastructure, and enterprise security and importantly are missing the tools and libraries that let them do the right things easily.

Peculiar Ventures consists of enthusiasts in 3 countries with the main office in Kirkland, WA (USA). We have several commercial projects as well that focus on digital signatures, remote identification, certificates, smartcards, and PDFs.

Peculiar Ventures' libraries get a half-million downloads on GitHub weekly with hundreds of dependencies.

We need your sponsorship to enable ongoing support and enhancement to the libraries we produced.


Reaching this goal will enable Peculiar Ventures' ongoing support and enhancement to the libraries we produced.
