2nd Wednesday Talk - Cryptography in Python

Needs a location

Cryptography underpins virtually all of modern data security, including everything from safe online shopping to secure password storage. But it's also famous for being difficult to understand and easy to mess up!

In this talk, we'll walk through a high-level overview what cryptography can do (encryption, hashes, and signatures), with no math required. Along the way, we'll look at how the `pyca/cryptography` package offers pre-made "recipes" to ensure you use cryptographic components the right way in your applications.

Presenter: Andrew Sillers

Andrew Sillers is a professional software developer and amateur cryptography enthusiast. He has 10+ years of experience in Web technologies, with a passion for decentralized systems.

Also, we're going to have another "after hour." After the presentation is over, anyone who wants to stay and do a bit of coding or chatting is welcome to hang out. Think of it like a mini open workshop.
