Workshop on Secure Communication

SFLC.in is organising a workshop on “Secure Communication ” in association with Sukhbir Singh, TOR Developer, on Saturday, September 23, 2017, from 11:00AM-:1:30 PM at the SFLC.in premises at K-9, Second Floor, Birbal Road, Jangpura Extension, New Delhi -110014 near Jangpura Metro station – Gate no 2.

We live in an era of unprecedented surveillance. The technical capabilities of law enforcement and intelligence agencies are rapidly expanding, and even the best attempts at law reform can’t keep up with these new powers. Over and over again, we’ve seen these capabilities used against protected free speech activities, especially against the speech of marginalized people.

Compounding the problem of government surveillance is that of corporate surveillance; we rely on a small handful of data-driven private companies for all of our computing needs, and many of these services are “free” because we are the product. These corporate entities regularly collude with law enforcement to share our private communications, searches, contacts, and more — quite often without our knowledge. By fighting against surveillance, we can reject an internet controlled by a handful of powerful corporate entities and intelligence agencies, and take back our rights in the digital sphere.

The workshop will cover crypto tools which will make it easy for you to:

* protect your privacy online
* anonymize your online activity
* encrypt your chat and emails that no one can break!

Date : September 23, 2017
Time : 11am – 1.30pm
Venue : SFLC.in premises at K-9, Second Floor, Birbal Road, Jangpura Extension, New Delhi -110014
Includes : Drinks, Food & Fun

As we have limited seating available for this discussion, we would request you to please RSVP here.

In case of any query and/or clarification, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Cryptoparty – January 2016

SFLC.in will be organizing a cryptoparty on 30th January 2016 at 3pm in its office in Jangpura, Delhi. It will be a hands-on workshop where we teach and learn basic cryptography tools to secure our digital communication, to understand data privacy and mass surveillance issues.

Why Cryptoparty?

The state of digital communication hasn't improved much despite the scary revelations made by Edward Snowden back in 2013. Governments and corporations have been engaged in massive surveillance programs which strip our digital lives of all forms of privacy or anonymity, which are essential components to exercise our right to free speech and expression. Hackers have long been practicing the use of mathematics and cryptography tools to circumvent surveillance and keep their communications private. These tools are now necessary for people working in all fields, given the inevitability of digital communication everywhere.

Cryptoparty is a social gathering of people to help learn basic cryptography tools by getting their laptops, mobile phones and other gadgets and learn to secure their digital lives.

What to expect?


  • How to encrypt your emails using PGP

  • How to browse anonymously using Tor

  • How to avoid being tracked online
  • Fun and Food

When?

3pm to 5:30pm on 30th January, 2016

How to get there?

Address: K-9, Birbal Road, Jangpura Extension, New Delhi - 14 Metro: Jangpura Metro Station on Violet Line
