Introduction

From CryptoParty article by Parker Higgins of the EFF

...a set of global get-togethers where more experienced users can teach beginners how to use the commonly available tools that tap into the incredibly powerful technology of cryptography. I hope that a beginner walks away from a #CryptoParty with an understanding of not just PGP, OTR, and the like, but with an idea of why threat models are important, what attack vectors she ought to consider, and — most importantly — a network of people and resources she can contact for even more knowledge.
    "Privacy is the power to selectively reveal oneself to the world."
	- Cypherpunk Manifesto, 1993.

    Data retention, wiretapping, interception, stalking.. Make it 
    really f&*^ing hard for them!

Past Events

Event #1 - 28th September 2012

This event is over.

Summary

There was a great turn out for Dublin's first #cryptoparty. 34 people arrived in Trinity College, Dublin to learn about encryption types, PGP/GPG and basic security and privacy practices.

Although there was some trouble with infrastructure and getting people on the network, eventually almost everyone managed to generate and publish their GPG public key. Most people where then able to send and receive encrypted messages from other attendees.

After the workshop we continued the party in the Longstone pub with food funded by DU Pirate Party. Some very interesting conversations over pints continued well into the night.

The slides are available online if anyone wishes to reuse or modify them.


Please freely add to, and edit this page. If anyone has ideas for this event, I can be contacted at using my PGP key, - Donncha

Event #2 - Friday 30th November 2012

Warning

Even though Tog tend to video / photograph events, this will be a video/photo free event. There will be a wide range of people in attendance and not everyone will want their photos taken, please respect this.

What happens?

Crypto parties are free events open to all. The level of the talks will be aimed at introducing non-techies to practical, strong cryptography and privacy tools.

When?

Friday, November 30th, 7pm till late

Where?

This cryptoparty is being kindly hosted by Dublin's TOG hackerspace. They have a map with their location available on their website.

Topics

If anyone is interested in running a relevant talk or demo please add it here or join the Dublin cryptoparty mailing list

Confirmed topics so far are:

Cookie tracking

will consist in a ground-up basics like what a cookie is, what a user agent is, how they can be used to identify you, what a secure cookie is and what google analytics and facebook connect icons do, then tying it all together with showing how facebook can see where you are even if you're logged out of Facebook and whatnot. Kinda specific but still it will be very understandable - MITM attack demo

This will be a brief live demo using "man in the middle" techniques to intercept Wi-Fi connections

PGP Key Signing

Bring your fingerprint printed and we will do reciprocal key signing. To do this issue the following from the command line

 gpg --fingerprint <your key id>

eg

 gpg gpg --fingerprint DEADBEEF

This should give you the following outupt which you should print and bring along to the cryptoparty

 pub   4096R/DEADBEEF 2010-01-01 [expires: 2015-01-01]
       Key fingerprint = DECA FBAD 52AC DADA BABA 000F 45632 CCDB 22C0 8600
 uid                  Alice <alice@example.com>
 sub   4096R/DECAFBAD 2010-01-01 [expires: 2015-01-01]

Mailing List

Wikis are not the best place for collaborative event organisation. It is difficult to get people interacting and it is difficult to get in contact with people again once an event is decided upon. A mailing list has now been set up for Dublin cryptoparties to help get people connected. To send a message to the list please email cryptoparty-dublin@autistici.org. I would like to thank the guys at Autistici.org for hosting the mailing list.

Note

Autistici run their own Certificate Authority, unfortunately for those new to the cryptoparty movement it is a bit of a chicken and egg situation. Until you get the Autistici certs and CRL and can verify them, you should treat all connections to Autistici as potentially being man in the middled.

The required files are available here: http://ca.autistici.org/

Discussion Topics

I would like this section to be used for proposing discussions, talks and workshops. We all have great ideas for stuff we want to see at a CryptoParty. We also may want to contribute and may not think what we want to talk about will interest attendees. Please list things you would like to see at a CryptoParty and then we can attempt to fill the requests.

  • VPN Solutions based on budget/privacy
  • Hard Drive encryption
  • Portable HDD/USB encryption solutions
  • Digital Rights
  • SSH Foo - LocalForward/RemoteForward/ssh connection chaining
