Information Security and Organizing

July 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join activists from Crytoparty Boston ( for a hands-on workshop to learn about encryption tools and how we can protect our privacy against the surveillance state and other intrusive forces. We’ll “hang out” with computers and try to get rid of the fear that the panopticon (the “all-seeing eye” of the state) wants us to live under. Bring your questions, laptops, phones and devices and together we will help set you up with various tools to encrypt your communication an be anonymous on the internet. Topics we can cover: PGP email encryption, Tor browser, Tails, secure text messaging/ chats/ video calls, key signing, mesh networking, how to install linux onto your computer… and more!

We’ll have refreshments at 6:30PM. Bring yourself + a friend and questions about “what do I download?” and “what’s a public key?” Join us, learn stuff, and next time, you can be a “crypto angel” by teaching a new person something too.

Registration Fee: $10 (suggested). No one turned away due to lack of funds.
