The second Tuesday of each month we will present a seminar about doing "something" at the space. These seminars will cover using tools at the space, using publicly available kits, learning normal hacker/maker skills.
This month we will do a basic cryptography class. We will talk about different types of encryption, ciphers, hashes, and algorithms. If there's enough time, we'll go through common ways of breaking it.
- Example: AES
- Public Key Cryptography
- Example: RSA
- Example: SHA
- Libraries // Don't Roll Your Own (NaCL, etc.)
- OPTIONAL: Key Derivation Functions
- OPTIONAL: Cracking crypto with python
- OPTIONAL: Common weakness in algorithms (CBC vs GCM)
