Dallas Makerspace will be holding a CryptoParty on February 20th at 7pm, running until about 9pm.
CryptoParty is a decentralized, global initiative to introduce basic cryptography tools – such as the Tor anonymity network, public key encryption (PGP/GPG), and OTR (Off The Record messaging) – to the general public.
The topic of the CryptoParty being held on the 20th will be: “Encrypting emails with GPG”
The class will be about 2 hours long, and the instructor will stay as late as necessary to answer questions/assist with issues. First hour is an overview and general lecture, with the second hour as the technical segment/hands on.
Everyone is encouraged to bring their laptops.
Copies of software will be available on CD/USB drive if people are unable or unwilling to connect to the internet.
