Michael Flaxman & Tom
Michael from CoinSafe.com is in town for the conference and will be giving a talk on how to secure your bitcoin using cold storage. He'll be explaining the core elements of cold storage: air gapped machines, random number generation, symmetric encryption, and Shamir's Secret Sharing Scheme. He'll also be reviewing the Bitcoin protocol so you can better understand the fundamentals. The goal is to build a system that has no single point of failure, is impenetrable by attackers, and recoverable even if you forget your password. By the end of the talk, you'll know not only how to store Bitcoin securely, but also some very common mistakes that people make when using cold storage.
Kyle is also in town for the conference and will be talking about some of his work on Coinpunk and bitcoinjs-lib!
