Join us at our monthly CryptoParty gathering!  What is a CryptoParty?  For more information, check this out: []

It's an informal, non-commercial gathering where folks can discuss select topics in privacy, information security and technology.

Some of these topics include:

  • Anonymity: is pure anonymity possible in the Brave New World?
  • Browser Security: setting tweaks, hacks, considerations
  • Countersurveillance: techniques to baffle and thwart your adversaries
  • Dead Drops: USB and otherwise []
  • Encryption: for email and hard drives
  • Internet Cash Schemes: bitcoin, advantages and disadvantages
  • Steganography: hidden messages in plain sight
  • Symbolic Communication: a public post of red flowers means ...
  • Virtual Private Networks: how do you use one and how effective are they?
  • Whistleblowing: considerations when leaking sensitive information

If you're at all the least bit concerned about the government scooping up all your internet activity to build a detailed dossier on you and kept on file indefinitely ready to use whenever you get labeled a "terrorist" - then CryptoParty is for you.

    I added the commands I used in the demo to the bottom of our wiki page at . More links to the presentations and the video we showed will be added soon.

      Eldon, thanks for the demo, and reinforcing my fear of open wifi. I have always been cautious about connecting open wifi, but now I know exactly what I should be concerned about, and more importantly, how to minimize my exposure.

    Hi, sorry to have missed this event. I was exhausted.

    How long is this going on until and can I show up a little late?

      Probably will run later - it really depends on the crowd. I would say 11p is probably a good estimate for the end-time...

    Don't forget to bring your laptops or other devices! We'll have hands-on stuff that you'll want to take part in. See you tomorrow!
