Are you concerned about your privacy?  We’ll talk about cybersecurity on campus and beyond, demonstrating tricks from Snowden's toolkit.

We’ll cover best-practices for daily tasks like Web searches and handling passwords.  You’ll learn how to use secure software on desktop and mobile devices, giving you the tools you need to better safeguard your privacy.  These include:

    * Tor, the anonymity network - We’ll learn how to browse the Web, share files, and send messages anonymously.

    * PGP/GPG encrypted e-mail - We’ll discuss private e-mails and public/private key encryption.

    * Private mobile & desktop chat - We’ll try a handful of audio, video, and text chat apps that safeguard data with end-to-end encryption.

Please bring your laptops and mobile devices
