Meeting 5/6/2016: Cryptoparty Edition

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
  • Copy of your OpenPGP fingerprint
  • Proof of identity

What you need to attend:

  • Nothing. You can just lurk or ask questions.

For more information and agenda, see the Cryptoparty page.
