The fourth event in our security and privacy series. By undergraduate
students Murphy Berzish and Nick Guenther.
Nick Guenther and Murphy Berzish will be holding a hands-on seminar in the
Comfy to introduce you to public-private key crypto and how you can practically
use it, so bring your laptops! You will learn about PGP, an encryption protocol
that provides confidentiality and authenticity. At the seminar, you will learn
how to use PGP to send encrypted email and files, provably identify yourself to
others, and verify data. Bring a laptop so we can help help you generate your
first keypair and give you the chance to form a Web of Trust with your
peers.</p>
<p>A GSIntroducer from <a href="www.GSWoT.org">www.GSWoT.org</a> will be on
hand. If you are interested in obtaining an elevated level of trust, bring
government-issued photo-ID.</p>
<p>There will also be balloons and cake.
