This will be Rochester 2600's first (and maybe only) cryptoparty. A Cryptoparty is a hands on workshop that teaches anyone about important security and cryptography tools you can use to protect yourself. There will be a focus this time around on OpenPGP/GPG and the new operating systems QubesOS and SubgraphOS.
What you need to participate:
Laptop ideally with Linux installed on it
USB drive to copy keys between systems
What you need to attend:
Nothing. You can just lurk or ask questions but participation is key.
