The Guardian Project - a privacy, security and anonymity stack for Android

Note: Registration will open on March 28, 2013 Thursday at 4:00pm

While smartphones have been heralded as the coming of the next generation of communication and collaboration, they are a step backwards when it comes to personal security, anonymity and privacy. The Guardian Project aims to create easy to use apps, open-source software libraries and operating system modifications, and customized mobile devices that can be used and deployed around the world, by any person looking to protect their communications and personal data from unjust intrusion and monitoring.

This talk will give an overview of The Guardian Project, then go deep into the particular projects that the two speakers lead.  Lee will talk about the Open Secure Telephony Network and how you can run your own secure telephone system.Hanswill talk about Android development tools to make it easy to secure your apps: NetCipher for networking, SQLCipher for databases, and IOCipher for file storage.

    I'm convinced that Hans-Cristoph and Lee are doing important, interesting work but I was a little disappointed that the material was presented in a haphazard way. Either build a narrative out of the many different pieces or focus on one thing.
