A local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance (not EFF) will host this event:
Being able to communicate safely and privately with friends and family is part of the foundation of all our lives, so it's also a key skill for using the Internet. This month's cryptoparty will entail going over easy ways to talk, chat, and email securely online—it's always good to review the tools and habits that our digital security depend on, especially with the recent Signal Desktop flaws and the e-Fail email exploits.
After the main discussion and current events, breakout groups will focus on:
—secure messaging and chat applications like Signal and Riot
—Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) email encryption
