Ain’t no party like a… Cryptoparty!
An evening with IT experts offering you free, highly secure email encryption.
Because privacy is a right, not a privilege.

WHAT will we be doing?
We will teach you to encrypt your email so nobody (not even the NSA or GCHQ) can read it except you and those (with encryption) that you are mailing.

We will help you with tools such as the TOR-browser and blocking-plug-ins that allow you to surf much more anonymously.
For those who are more daring, we can show you how to encrypt your hard-disk so even a stolen/lost laptop does not divulge your data to the world.
We will work as fast or as slow as is required for your level.
Chaos Club Cluj
Every Friday, 8pm til late.
8pm-10.30pm: Email encryption.
10.30pm-Midnight: Extras: anonymous browsing, plug-ins, high level encryption.
WHY is privacy important?
Whistleblower Edward Snowden’s recent leaks confirmed that communications are spied on by GCHQ and the NSA, without warrant, on an unprecedented scale. This arguably contravenes Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – the right to privacy.
Information about global surveillance has been out there for years. As we have seen in the encroaching surveillance state, people who feel they are constantly ‘watched’ adapt their behaviors accordingly. Perhaps unsurprisingly, governments are either unwilling or unable to uphold our legal right to privacy. The debate is over – we only have the privacy we make for ourselves.
BRING: Your laptop (Windows, Mac, or Linux – no tablets) & charger. Make sure you have the right to install new software on the laptop (may be blocked on work-laptops).
Our offer: Perhaps wine (or beer,cola,vodka,coffee,the,tequila,palinka,..) and snacks to share to make our evening more pleasurable! Donations toward the hacker space and future projects to help those less fortunate than us in other countries would be gratefully received.

What is CryptoParty?

Attend a CryptoParty to learn and teach how to use basic cryptography tools. A CryptoParty is free, public and fun. People bring their computers, mobile devices, and a willingness to learn!CryptoParty is a decentralized, global initiative to introduce the most basic cryptography software and the fundamental concepts of their operation to the general public, such as the Tor anonymity network, public key encryption (PGP/GPG), and OTR (Off The Record messaging). CryptoParties are free to attend, public, and commercially and politically non-aligned. (see theguiding principles)
