This Summer there has been a large media focus on all these hacks and the capabilities of foreign hackers. Often this media coverage is without the context of the “full story” that most of the hacks were proof of concepts for conference talks at things like blackhat, defcon, USENIX WOOT, and issues like Ashley Madison, etc.
We will look at these and have a security researcher available to talk about the work they do and their take on the summer and the blackhat conference. And of course we will be available to answer, discuss, teach, and learn about secure mobile use, secure browsing (using tor), secure email (using gpg), and secure chat (using otr).
Sorry no chips, dip, awesome music or drinks. Just food for your mind. Ever wonder how to stay private, safe, & secure in today’s digital age? What is a cryptoparty anyway? A CryptoParty is free, public and fun.
People bring their computers, mobile devices, and a willingness to learn! In the time of the event people will learn and teach how to use basic cryptography tools. Cryptoparties are decentralized global events that are organized to answer questions and instruct people on technology & privacy. Cryptoparties are always free to attend, public, commercially and politically non-aligned and absolutely against sexual harassment and discrimination.
There are no dumb questions, you do not need to know anything about this subject, nor do you even need to bring a computer or phone. However that will help you get the most of it.
Also are co-organizers are coming back from defcon (@huertanix, @tommycollison) , ccc camp (@huertanix, @corcra), & working with black lives matter activist (@geminiimatt)
