Hosted by Dan Bustillo, Tim Schwartz, Lucas Wrench of LA Cryptoparty, in Collaboration with Machine Project

In this three-hour role-play-based workshop, participants will learn to safely and securely communicate via encrypted email, using the initial communications between whistleblower Edward Snowden and journalist Laura Poitras as our guide. To address the uncertainty of knowing if our communications are secure, participants are invited to assume the roles of both whistleblower and journalist as we reenact the first emails between Snowden and Poitras, and learn the steps required for smuggling national secrets. Laptop required, no encryption experience necessary.
