general meeting

Crypto, Linux and how Bob meets Alice

When: Tue May 08, 2007 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Aaron Grattafiori

Location: O'Reilly Media

Cryptography has been around since the days of the Pharos, and could possibly be the reason for the birth of the modern computer as we know it. In this talk, Aaron will touch on some of the highlights of crypto’s long history; explain some simple and more complex ideas/terms, following with information about how this involves Linux. He will cover how to secure not only, the files you hold on your computer, but your traffic as it goes over the tubes (from mail to myspace). Aaron will cover some of the common misconceptions and overview some basic to advanced tools available. This talk will try to have information and tips for those brand new to Linux and cryptography… but also advanced users as well. Qrzbf ner ehzberq.
