Heads up, everybody. CryptoPartyMN will be hosting its third CryptoParty on August 30th at the Hack Factory. We’re planning on getting things started at 13:00 (1:00 PM) and will likely wrap things up around 17:00 (5:00 PM). If you’re planning on attending there is an Eventbrite page where you can sign up (it helps us get an estimate of how many people are coming).
What can you expect at the event? To learn about computer security. We will be teaching attendees how to utilize modern cryptographic tools such as Pretty Good Protection (PGP) for encryption e-mails, Off-the-Record (OTR) messaging for encrypting chats, tools for full-disk encryption, and pretty much anything else people want to learn about. The event will be informal and no prior knowledge about cryptographic tools is necessary.
More details about the event will be posted as they are hammered out in the coming weeks.
