February: Internet Privacy - Tor, Whonix, and Tails

At a time when governments, corporations, and hackers battle over our private information, technical means of fighting back are desperately needed. A browser and associated protocol called Tor allows regular people to shields themselves from spying at both the internet and browser levels. We’ll talk about how this software works, as well as examine two operating systems (Whonix and Tails) which use Tor as their foundation. Dave Tucker is a software engineer at Freeport Technologies, Inc., where he designs, codes, and tests a variety of software for customers in the military and intelligence communities, with a focus on multi-domain security applications. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from Radford University, and is currently enrolled at Virginia Tech in the Master of Information Technology program. When not working or studying, he spends his time reading, training in martial arts, playing classical guitar, shooting, hiking, or gaming.
