    I've never been to a GPG signing party, and my mind is chock full of ignorant questions! If it wasn't 01:30, would reading http://www.cryptnet.net/fdp/crypto/k...ing_party.html tell me everything I need to know?

    Thanks!

    Hi DT,

    We have a tentative agenda here:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...ftHjknitKg/pub

    We will definitely be getting this information into the printed program.

    We've been assigned a room, and are working with the EFF to make this awesome. Our tentative hours are Friday and Saturday, Noon - 6PM.

    We're looking for volunteer teachers who are interested in giving basic cryptoparty-style tutorials on popular software such as Tor/Tails and PGP/GPG. If you're interested in doing this sort of thing, let us know!

    As a new user and 1st time DefCon attendee this year, I would be really interested in this!

    started a topic Crypto and Privacy Village

    Crypto and Privacy Village

    Hello there ladies and gentlemen of DEFCON...

    Planning is underway for a Crypto and Privacy Village this year. A tentative plan:

    - Cryptoparty-style tutorials on how to use popular encryption tools like Tor and GPG
    - Cryptanalysis/breaking 101, teaching you how to break classical encryption systems like Caesar ciphers and Vigenere along with some modern crypto breaking (e.g. ECB mode, repeated IV, padding oracle, compression ratio)
    - (Possibly?) EFF presence talking about privacy law

    Sound good?
Working...
