Cryptoparties are skill & knowledge sharing sessions which aim to teach people the basic ways of protecting themselves and their data from intrusive surveillance.

Generally the parties deal with how to have private conversations over instant messaging, how to encrypt emails, how to browse anonymously and how to reliably encrypt your hard disk amongst other things.

It is very important that you leave the CryptoParty with tools you can use on a daily basis, and explain to your friends how to do it too. All the attendees should come with device(s)  they want to install tools on.

•  We’ll discuss why Cryptography, anonymity and anti-tracking tools are important today

• We’ll install online anonymity tools

• We’ll secure our communications

• We’ll make sure we can’t be easily tracked online

• We’ll have a drink and a chat

No prior technical expertise or knowledge is assumed, so ask away about anything.

Bring your devices and your beverage of choice!

Thanks to Build Brighton for providing the space ;-)

    Build Brighton is just around the corner from the Sainsbury's Superstore on Lewes Road. There is a robot on the buzzer, so it's fairly easy to find for people who have not visited the space before. The surrounding roads also have free parking for anyone driving.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
