CryptoParty

Join us at our monthly CryptoParty gathering!  What is a CryptoParty?  For more information, check this out: [http://www.cryptoparty.in/index]

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 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_dead_drop]
  • 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.

Please consider a $5 donation towards our internet and legal defense fund!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
