How do I ... Do Encryption

This Meetup is past

3 people went


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.

Outline [Potentially]:

Introduction Ciphers Example: AES Public Key Cryptography Example: RSA Hashing 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) Optional Requirements:

Laptop with Python
