How do I ... Do Encryption

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
