Care about your online privacy and security? Attend a Cryptoparty by SFLC.in!
When mass surveillance and data mining define our online lives, privacy and data protection acquire a whole new meaning. Educating and empowering the netizens to take informed decisions and resist such surveillance is an important part building a free society. A small step in this direction is by understanding the basic concepts of Cryptography and how to use them.
CryptoParty is a decentralized, global initiative to introduce the most basic cryptography software and the fundamental concepts of their operation to the general public, such as the Tor anonymity network, public key encryption (PGP/GPG), and OTR (Off The Record messaging). CryptoParties are free to attend, public, commercially and politically non-aligned events.
SFLC.in in its commitment to education about digital freedoms has been organizing such events in different parts of India. A tentative schedule is provided here.
