Would you communicate exclusively using postcards?
Probably not, even if you don’t have anything to hide.
You shouldn’t do that with your electronic communication either.
On Wednesday evening, come to Hack Manhattan, have a beer, and learn how to protect your personal data and communication.
The event will also be an opportunity to visit Hack Manhattan and check out the space. You don’t have to listen to the security talk.
We will cover as many of these topics as there is time for:
• Cryptographic concepts of privacy, authenticity and unforgeability
• Attacks: interception, man in the middle; key exchange
• How to encrypt your communications with GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG)
• How to manage public and private keys and participate in a web of trust
• Why do we need certificates and signing?
• Secure, deniable instant messaging with Off The Record (OTR) chat
• Protecting your local data; unallocated space; RAM attacks
• What tools does Ed Snowden use?
• Extremely paranoia: symmetric only encryption, one time pads, hardware keys, trusted computing, steganography
• I2P: The Invisible Internet
