    Microsoft opened the doors of Codeplex at least 10 years ago. There are a lot of newcomers since then, GitHub, Gitlab, Bitbucket, google code (come and gone). About the only thing older is SourceForge.

    And, if you've never heard of any of those sites... it's not surprising you've not heard of Codeplex.

    Ah, so Codeplex is a site that hosts downloadable apps like Sourceforge?

    I remember there being a huge security breach at Sourceforge a while ago where the downloadable apps contained trojans/viruses and other malicious code...

    I can tell you how the Federal government protects classified computer systems:
    Amazon.com: Vantec EZ Swap 4 3.5-Inch Aluminum Removable Trayless SATA Hard Drive Rack with LCD and Fan MRK-401ST-BK (Black): Electronics

    When not in use/attended, hard drives are removed from the computers and stored in containers approved for classified material storage. All government hard drives, classified or not, are encrypted with a whole disk encryption program similar to Bitlocker. You can probably google what encryption program the Feds use.

    I have a similar rack installed on my desktop, but I don't use it for my internal SSD. I use it to pop in hard drives to save backup images on and to play with different installations of operating systems. My rack accepts both 3.5" and 2.5" hard drives.

    Similar procedures apply for the UK government. Also, applications are locked down and the user can't install programs.

    Wow, this is an amazing idea so thanks for posting that Amazon link!

    I just tried searching for the encryption/security procedure that governments use, but I couldn't find anything...

    She wouldn't know anything about government computer encryption.

    There are lots of good answers above mine so in order not to be redundant my suggestion is to use the fire fox web browser from mozilla. Since I have been using it my anti-spyware program has only detected one or two tracking cookies and nothing major in the way of evil programs. good luck.
