Cryptoparty #2 – November 30th


cryptopartyA second Cryptoparty will be happening in 091 Labs on November 30th from 7pm!

Cryptoparties are happening all over the world. These free events are for people who are interested in encryption so they can come and learn more about basic Crypto programs and the concepts behind their operation. You can check out more info on cryptoparty.org.

There’ll be people talking about PGP/GPG, Tor, changing MAC addresses, and a bunch of other things. If you want to help out or have something you’d like to show, let us know and we’ll get some space together!

Tog in Dublin will also be hosting a Cryptoparty on the same night so no matter which half of the country you’re in, you’re covered =)

Update:

This evening is still going ahead on Friday (November 30th). Facebook link for those that use it https://www.facebook.com/events/367129280042915/ . If you can’t attend this event in Galway, it will also be taking place at TOG in Dublin.

 

Workshop: Protect your (Ubuntu) laptop in one hour


This post started off in my head as a guide to firewalling your home server, but it gradually evolved, mentally, into a workshop for securing the information on your Linux laptop with GRUB, KeePass and Truecrypt. Click the (awesome Hackers) image below to RSVP your place for this once-off workshop!
