Dear FBI FOIA Office,

Under provisions of the FOIA I request any and all FBI records on the
group "Cypherpunks" affiliated with the online Cypherpunk Mail List
established in 1992 and continuing to the present.

A description of the Cypherpunks group and some of its members,
including me, is available on Wikipedia:


This material will be published on the public education website
Cryptome.org of which I am the administrator.

I agree to pay for costs associated with this request as provided by

Thank you very much.
