UniForum Chicago is proud to announce the topic for the November 19, 2013 General meeting: "CA Cert.org - Open TechnologyPKI" by Ken Schumacher.
Our meetings are free and open to the public and begin promptly at 7pm at the IIT Rice Campus in Wheaton, IL. Additional information regarding this presentation can be found at http://www.uniforumchicago.org
Hope to see you there!
Ken Schumacher's goal in this presentation is to introduce concepts and technologies in the area of IT Identification Management (ITIM). We will look at PKI (Pubilc Key Infrastructure) as it is used in OpenPGP and digital certificates. He'll show you how these are used to enhance privacy, ensure authenticity, and verify the identity of those we communicate with. Hell also explain how you can get your own free digital certificate through CAcert.org.
Once we have finished, we will adjourn to nearby Cozymel's Mexican restaurant for food and drinks.
