Why is it called Fides?

Fides was the goddess of trust and good faith in Roman paganism. Fides represented everything that was required for "honor and credibility" in every aspect of Roman life. In addition to this, Fides means "reliability": reliability between two parties, which is always reciprocal. Fides stood out for her embodiment of this project's philosophy - to provide developers with a powerful tool to make privacy a default feature of any software.
