1. One time pads, (a)symmetric encryption, and BTC wallets!
This talk will cover one-time pads, symmetric encryption, and asymmetric encryption. We will give an analysis of each with pros/cons. There will be minimal math ;). This talk is mostly for beginners and semi-technical security people who want a little background on encryption. It is definitely not for hardcore security geeks. We’ll throw in a few demos too like creating a private key, using Truecrypt, and handling bitcoin wallets. This talk will be about 50 or 60 minutes long. If there’s time left, we’ll have a short discussion on crypto history and why you need crypto.

How to find us
Why are you charging $1?
We're looking for an accurate count for food and some people have suggested charging $1. They mentioned that the $1 RSVP charge would get us a pretty accurate headcount and cover some costs at the same time. It seems to be working but let us know if you have another suggestion!
