Secure your connection to the Internet and learn how to protect your self esteemed privacy Attend a Cryptoparty in Kolkata!
We must defend our own privacy if we expect to have any. We must come together and create systems which allow anonymous transactions to take place. People have been defending their own privacy for centuries with whispers, darkness, envelopes, closed doors, secret handshakes, and couriers. The technologies of the past did not allow for strong privacy, but electronic technologies do.
Governments around the world, including those in the West, are greatly increasing their surveillance of the Internet. Alongside a loss of the private sphere, this also represents a clear danger to basic civil liberties. The good news is that we already have the solution: encrypting communications makes it very hard, if not entirely impossible, for others to eavesdrop on our conversations. The bad news is that crypto is largely ignored by the general public, partly because they don't know about it, and partly because even if they do, it seems too much trouble to implement.
Let's have a party nearby and spread words on protecting privacy and encouraging usage of crypto When?
There is no event planned right now. Maybe you want to? Where? Who?
Everyone is invited! Do not hesitate to join, even (or especially) if you don't use crypto at all. Don't forget to bring your Laptop and/or smartphone!
