About Us

We are the 501(c)(3) non-profit behind Shadytel.

Part independent research lab, part museum, NT&T supports the scientific and educational goals of Shadytel. We also provide charitable contributions to independent information security researchers in need. Program activities include:


We are primarily funded through membership dues, supplemented with public donations. You may view our filings with the State of Washington here, and with the IRS here. We are in the process of converting our 501(c)(3) status from a Private Foundation to a Public Charity and expect that to be complete in October 2023.

If you would like to make a financial or in-kind contribution, please contact us. Our federal EIN is 82-2441609.
