It’s (crypto)party time!

With our advanced free democracies resembling George Orwell’s “1984” more and more (your TV is spying on you, NSA global mass-surveillance, pre-crime repression of free speech¬† etc), there surely couldn’t be a better time to throw a CryptoParty!


New Academic Building
Goldsmiths, University of London
New Cross
London SE14 6NW


Saturday 30th November, 11am onwards


The event is free & open to the public. Anyone who worries about the privacy and ultimately freedom of expression of their loved ones should attend.

Great lineup of speakers/presenters – check out the event schedule!

I will be doing a few workshops on mobile device privacy, encrypted Internet phone calls and using a computer without leaving any traces behind.

If you’re around on the 30th, join us for a day of practical tinkering with privacy tools!

Qubes OS – a secure operating system:

TAILS – This session never happened:

VoIP- Private voice calls:

Mobile privacy – how to keep your smartphone communications private:
