Interested parties with computers, devices, and the desire to learn to use the most basic crypto programs and the fundamental concepts of their operation!
“Privacy is necessary for an open society in the electronic age. Privacy is not secrecy. A private matter is something one doesn’t want the whole world to know, but a secret matter is something one doesn’t want anybody to know. Privacy is the power to selectively reveal oneself to the world.” ~A Cypherpunk’s Manifesto by Eric Hughes, 1993
Our first presentation will feature Phil Zimmermann and cover PGP/GPG encryption and the new Silent Circle technology he’s helping to develop. At 10PM EST we’ll be demonstrating how to download and use the Tor browser and taking calls to answer any questions viewers may have. Alan Reiner will be coming on the program at 11PM EST to discuss the cryptography behind Bitcoin, and demonstrate how to use Bitcoin in conjunction with the Armory client he developed to make your bitcoins more secure. At midnight we’ll wrap-up the CryptoParty with a demonstration of Truecrypt file/disk encryption, and finish by taking calls to respond to any comments and questions viewers may have.
So get your friends and computers together and tune-in at 9PM EST @ www2.adamvstheman.com/live to participate in the first ever AVTM LIVE! virtual CryptoParty!
