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.
