CryptoParties are events in which participants teach each other and/or learn how to use Open Source cryptographic tools to encrypt email, hard disks or USB sticks, chats, password storage, or to browse the web anonymously and generally get a better idea of what the state of privacy in our digital age is.
It's going to be an informal workshop that isn't necessarily designed in a way where I do all the talking/showing ;) It's a conversation!
The topic is really going to be steered by who shows up as I ask at the beginning what you'd be interested in.
Tools/technologies that might be covered:
* OpenPGP (encrypting emails and/or files)
* Jitsi (ZRTP encrypted Voice or Video over IP)
* Tor (anonymous web surfing)
* TrueCrypt (platform independent disk encryption)
* Pidgin and ChatSecure with OTR (encrypted chats)
It's also free and open event and it's encouraged for you to bring your own devices, no matter which platform. Though, disclaimer: iPhones or iPads … not a lot of good tools available here…
Would be lovely to see you on Sunday!
Led by Michael, who initiated the CryptoParty meetings in Vienna a little over a year ago, which by now draw between[masked] visitors depending on how much GCHQ and NSA are in the news
