Worcester Cryptoparty – March 22nd


The Massachusetts Pirate Party’s next cryptoparty is Sunday March 22nd, from 2pm-4pm at the Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Street, Worcester, MA 01608. The event will take place in the Banx Room.

What’s a cryptoparty? It’s a gathering where people learn about cryptography, and how to keep their digital communications private and secure. It’s useful to bring a laptop, so that you can try out the tools we’re presenting. (Bringing a laptop isn’t a requirement though; it’s purely optional).

On Sunday, we plan to look at Jitsi (a Voice over IP program) and GnuPG (software for encrypting email messages, and creating digital signatures).

This event is free, and open to the public.
