This week Security and Paranoia on Internet @ Barcelona CopyLeft

Saturday 21st of June

Workshop on basic knowledge for using internet safely.

First part: the difference between “clear” browsing and “encrypted” browsing, and OTR (encryption protocol for Instant Messaging).

Second part: introduction to GPG (Gnu Pretty Guard), a system that allows people to encrypt and sign data and communications.

Third part: Tor and the onion network. Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.

See you there at 15.00 then!
