CryptoParty Adelaide, Australia

CryptoParty Adelaide

June 27th, 11am - 6pm

What happens?

Bring a laptop, smartphone or tablet and join us for Adelaide’s second CryptoParty. Open to all, learn about cryptography software such as Tor - The Onion Router, PGP - Pretty Good Privacy, Public Key Cryptography, VPNs - Virtual Private Networks and OTR - Off The Record messaging, as well as other helpful applications and tips.

The party will be opened by a friendly group of cypherpunks who’ll explain what cryptography is, and how it’ll help you protect your privacy on-line and avoid data retention. They’ll be followed by three special guest speakers, and an install festival where we’ll help you install and use the crypto software you’ve just learned about.

We’ll then all take a collective deep breath and end with some good fun party times thanks to a chiptune performance by little-scale.

Pizza & drinks provided, but feel free to BYO.
