HacDC: Privacy, anonymity, and operational security.

05 October 2011

On Saturday, 8 October 2011 I will be at HacDC giving an impromptu class on personal privacy, online anonymity, and operational security for activists. I will be talking about some of the online surveillance technologies in use right now, risks inherent in organizing online and how to mitigate them, practical cryptography, practical anonymity, and operational security. If you are not familiar with using PGP or GnuPG and would like to generate and distribute a key or learn how to send and receive encrypted and signed e-mail, I can walk you through the process during the class. I will probably be giving some version of my Tor presentation as well. There will be a hands-on component so bring your smartphones and laptops.

Class begins at 5:30pm on Saturday. Spread the word, and I hope to see you there!
