Event Idea - CryptoParty / PGP Play

Hi All,

I light of the recent Friday Nigh Videos we’ve been watching, I’m interested in learning more about email encyption, OTR, TOR, Tails, and related things.

Are there any other people interested in getting together and either sharing their existing knowledge, or stumbling through it with me?


Definitely! Last crypto party was a lot of fun

I’m interested too.

I’m also interested in learning more about this.

Yes please. And if anyone can give advice on using VPN on Ubuntu, I’d be doubly interested.

I would be keen on this as well.

Yeah, I’m keen to come along and have my key signed!

If you’ve not already generated a PGP key, make sure you use at least 4096 bits and RSA type.

Also, when signing, use at least the SHA512 alogrith,

Some more ‘best practices’ at: https://we.riseup.net/riseuplabs+paow/openpgp-best-practices which is a bit to take in!

I’ve had some experience with things like owncloud, encrypted backups, OTR for Jabber, and TextSecure (which is awesome btw!)

Thanks @pwarren - would you be up for giving people a hand on the day/night if they’re having trouble getting started?

Sure thing!

Weekends will suit me best.
